My grandma took me to Korean spas or saunas once a month when I was younger. My skin would become wrinkly after soaking in the hot tub, just like my grandma’s. In the Hot Tub conveys my fear of growing old. The character on the right represents youth: a child with flushed cheeks, colorful hair, and taut skin. The character on the left represents the old: a grotesque mound of flesh with wrinkles and dull skin. Gambling chip mosquitoes float around the character on the left as if they are a part of the character itself. The old constantly search for relief the same way mosquitoes hunt for blood. My grandma finds her relief in gambling.
