Selected as the cover artist of the magazine <A Home Full of Happiness> for the August issue in 2021. <A Home Full of Happiness> is a culture magazine that features family, life, food, fashion, and beauty. The blue painting on the cover was born during Kim Ho Yeon's thirties where he was inspired by the pure and transparent blue color of Korean 'Cheongwhabaekja'.

Selected as the cover artist of the magazine <Severance> from one of the leading Korean university hospital 'Yonsei University Severance'. "His work is based on the freedom of play that does notcling to any object and is misled by any promises. The figures painted by this freedom show a unique sense of weightlessness. In front of the specific shape of the work, we see a rich and warm feast of colors and through this, we see a harmonious virtualization of nature. It warms our eyes bodies like fog, transcending the walls of time to awaken childhood memories and fantasies." Ha Seo Kyu Critic(Professor of Hong-ik University)
