A dark projection room is located at the top end of the theater. 75 year old Lee Jang-won skillfully operates the projector. It was 4 years ago that he retired from his 5 decade-long career in the theater business. Over the years, filmmaking has gone digital, using computer files instead of film. Despite his age, Lee familiarized himself with the new technology and made a fresh start as an intern.

[Soundbite] Lee Jang-won(75 Years Old/Senior Intern) : "It was unfamiliar. I didn't know anything about computers. Now I'm better. Actually, it's more convenient now compared to using film."

The theater valued his experience and technical skills and recently employed him as a full-time employee following his 3-month internship.

[Soundbite] Heo Eun-do(Theater Director) : "Theater jobs are close to professional posts. People are passionate about learning the trade."

63 year old Jeong Jun-gi is also working as an intern at a rental car company. He comes to work earlier than his co-workers to heat up the engines and the work site. He used to work in sales at a conglomerate for 30 years. Now, he is passing on his extensive know-how to young workers.

[Soundbite] Jeong Jun-gi(63 Years Old/Senior Intern) : "This firm has room for improvement. I use my experience to contribute and to motivate others."

These senior interns are typically over 60 years old. They receive an average monthly wage of approximately 900 dollars, which includes government subsidies for three months of six-hour workdays. Depending on their competence, some go on to be employed full time. Around 6,900 senior interns are working across the country as they learn new skills and share their accumulated experience.
