Faridabad, December 1, 2014: The School saw a Korean extravaganza, ‘Run, Run, Ruuuuun - Riddle Jar’, wherein a presentation was done by the artists from the Masil Theatre, delivering a fresh experience to the audiences. The interactive character of the drama kept the audience thoroughly involved as it contained a riddle about growing a pumpkin in a jar.
The artists played traditional Korean musical instruments during the play which depicted all the seasons and culminated with the message of peace. The students were mesmerised with the similarities and differences between the Korean and Indian cultures.
The Principal, Mrs. Purnima Vohra in her address, welcomed the guests, In-Hye Jeong-Cultural Exchange Specialist, Korean Cultural Centre India, Embassy of the Republic of Korea and members of the Masil theatre - Son Hyejung, Yu Ingyeong, Yun Hyejin, Lee Junghee, Song Kijo & Kim Hyoin.
The presentation was a part of the Korean Cultural Centre & Indian School Partnership Project. Protecting the cultural heritage through international collaboration is strongly required to build a borderless world. South Korea has a wealth of culture and technology developed over the years. Values play an important role in the development of character and Korean culture, laying stress on family values which is very similar to our culture. Family welfare is for the Koreans more important than that of an individual.
