Gang Tae-hyun has participated in the competition for four consecutive years since 2019 and was honored with the Grand Prize this year with a constant challenge. Gang Tae-hyun, a student, said, NYC is a competition with always open opportunities for challenges, so I have been studying coding every year. I will be.
