Yoon wanted to express her regards towards Igor Stravinsky, who is considered one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, through Barbie. She admires him for experimenting with  a new and constantly changing musical language that has influenced a variety of music trends, from romantic music to primitive, impressionistic, neoclassical, jazz, and 12-tone techniques.

Story of Barbies
There is always music in Jeongwon Yoon’s studio. Yoon is a classical music fan and starts her work day with the sound of Choral Music. The classic radio stations become like a friend for the artist. For Yoon, Barbie is a musical note within the music that she can see and hear.
