School’s academic results, career development at work, starting a family, these things we will undoubtedly be compared with others during our lifetime. Seemingly we are chasing a train endlessly that some maybe on board already but some haven’t. For the destination, things we will see in the terminal, time of arrival, we, however, know nothing about it. So, is it worth using lots of effort to chase it? Are we actually fulfilling people’s expectations? Or are we afraid of being chased by others?

In a certain period of our life, we will know whether we take the right train or not. Ask yourself, what kind of thing means a lot to you? Is it wealth and power? Starting a family? Or is it pursuing a healthy physical and mental life? After all, it is our desire to decide where the terminal is and only yourself know about it.

A Chasing Man uses a rapid and steady rhythm, depicting the scenario of people chasing a train and thus, reflecting our career.
