Artist: Shen Yun Provides Answers to the World’s Problems
DAEGU, South Korea— Member of Korean Photographer’s Association, President of the Ulsan City Branch of the Korean Arts Culture Federation, Korean Photography Exhibition Honorary Artist, Mr. Seoh Zhen Ji attended Shen Yun New York Company’s second show at the Daegu Suseong Artipia, Feb. 25.
“To describe it in one sentence: Shen Yun offers solutions to all of the modern world’s problems,” said Mr. Seoh after the show.
Mr. Seoh Zhen Ji, who is also the former director of Ulsan City Culture Association, traveled to Daegu with his wife to attend the performance. “Today we came very far. From watching Shen Yun, I’ve gotten answers to many worries and perplexities that I’ve had for so long,” he said, “I realized that from now on I should live optimistically. The performance presented the truths of life through the arts, and communicated very naturally to the audience. People became awakened. Shen Yun choreographers are quite excellent.”
“I am a photographer by profession, and I’ve made several films as well. The backdrops in today’s performance matched seamlessly with the action on stage. I felt like I became a deity myself and floated amidst the clouds toward heaven,” Mr. Seoh said, “I wish I could preserve this sensation forever.”
“For my photography, I’ve been to China 25 times. The images of Mount Huang on the backdrop were so beautiful that I felt as if I was revisiting China. Aesthetically, they were out of this world.”
“In the first half, Lotus Leaves was really good. In the second half, the snowy scene (Snowflakes Welcoming Spring) was gorgeous, like being in a dream. Because out of the dream world, where can you find such a sight?” Mr. Seoh continued, “But in fact the Shen Yun presented it to us in reality.”
“In our time, to be able to see a performance of such artistic caliber is the true joy in life.”
“The show’s theme is the battle between good and evil, and the choice between right and wrong. I think Shen Yun used divine powers to inform us of the true answer.”
“What distresses me is that you can’t see a performance like this in China. I was thinking, in order to hold such a show in China, we should all make efforts to support the cause,” said Mr. Seoh, “In the future, we ought to invite the show to Ulsan. We’ll receive them enthusiastically, so our citizens can appreciate it and enhance their cultural awareness.”
