|[ Etc ] Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team to Present Online Performance 'Promise' on June 25|
Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team (hereinafter referred to as the ¡°Demonstration Team¡±) is going to present a virtual performance ¡®Promise¡¯ under the theme of the Korean War to mark the Month of Patriots and Veterans.
From 11AM, on Friday, June 25, the Demonstration Team will release the 35-minute performance ¡®Promise¡¯ online via Kukkiwon Youtube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/kukkiwonpr). Featuring 34 team members, the show depicts the heartbreaking love between comrades and families through the reminiscence of a Korean War veteran who has become an old man.
Against the backdrop of the tragedy of the fratricidal Korean War, the promises that are kept between the characters or not kept due to circumstances are contrasted, deeply moving the audience¡¯s emotion.
While seeking a way to help console the people around the world who are going through tough times due to the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Demonstration Team has prepared the second virtual performance following the previous one ¡®Hi Kick¡¯ presented in May last year.
The special feature of the show is that the Demonstration Team members act and speak the lines, an unusual attempt and completely different from the conventional non-verbal performance.
To perfect the performance, the Demonstration Team has practiced tirelessly since December last year.
As overseas dispatch is suspended due to the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic, the Demonstration Team has been planning and regularly presenting online performances under the support of the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and Korea Sports Promotion Foundation to send a message of comfort and hope to people worldwide.
