Who am I?

Municipal cigarette manufacturer, Sunhwaguk
Since 1883

I’ve always been here.
From long, long ago.

In fact, everything in the world starts with me.

Inventing instead of studying,
proving that, despite the setbacks, anything is possible.
Not everything happens right away, with a snap of your fingers.
Sometimes, words alone aren’t enough.
But if you add a little gravitational pull to

my resilience, insight, and ability to respond at a moment’s notice,
someday, perhaps in just a little while,
maybe even as soon as tomorrow,
I could be right in front of your eyes.

If you’d like to me meet, just imagine…
Who could I possibly be?
