October 09, 2004 | By a Falun Gong Practitioner in Seoul

(Clearwisdom.net) "Uncompromising Courage," a fine art exhibit, was held in a peaceful atmosphere in Seoul from Oct. 4 to Oct. 7, 2004.

Opening ceremony of the Fine Art Exhibit

This art exhibit was sponsored by the Falun Dafa Association of Korea. Congressman Shin Hak-yong, Director of the Cultural Academy, and others attended the opening ceremony. The Uri Party Congressmen sent greetings and expressed regret for not being able to attend the ceremony.

Congressman Shin, who was an active supporter of legislation against genocide in September, gave a congratulatory speech at the opening ceremony. He praised Falun Gong for being key to solving social problems caused by deteriorating morality. He hoped this art exhibit would allow more people to know Falun Gong.

At an interview with NTDTV after the ceremony, Congressman Shin said he could not understand why Jiang Zemin would have persecuted such a great cultivation method. The director of Amnesty International in Korea, Pu Nanshi, said he had known about the bad human rights situation in China before, but he hadn't realized the persecution was so bad until he visited this art exhibit. As a human rights organization, Amnesty International has great concerns on this issue and is pursuing all possible ways to stop the persecution.

Many people visited the art exhibit. They were amazed to see the two-hundred-square-meter exhibit hall had been filled with such unique and outstanding artwork. They asked about cultivation in Falun Dafa and were reluctant to leave the exhibit.

Upon the closing of the exhibit in Seoul, the art exhibit will continue its tour to Daejon, Gwangju and Busan.
