Prison Inside Me is the brainchild of 47-year-old Kwon Yong-seok. “I didn’t know how to stop working back then,” he said. “I felt like I was being swept away against my will, and it seemed I couldn’t control my own life.” He asked his old acquaintance – a prison governor – if he could spend a week locked up in jail. Although he said it was for ‘therapeutic reasons’, his request was rejected. So Kwon decided to take matters into his own hands, and began to make plans for his prison-like spiritual center.
