On November 4, local practitioners held a large-scale truth-clarification event at the Busan Train Station and nearby areas to promote Falun Gong and disclose the brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in Mainland China by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). In the afternoon, a rally and a parade were held. In the evening, practitioners staged a truth-clarification photo exhibit, showed informational video programs and held a candlelight vigil. The activities attracted many groups of tourists and local residents.

On November 5, the 2005 Korean Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference was held. Practitioners from all over Korea attended the conference. Seventeen practitioners shared their experiences, including a practitioner who recently came to Korea from China. Young practitioners from the Minghui School were also part of the program.

The Mainland practitioner recounted how he was unlawfully detained in forced labor camps and subjected to all kinds of torture methods. Despite all the persecution, he firmly believes in Master and Falun Dafa. Instead of giving in to the evil, he clarified the truth to the guards who were deceived by CCP and the lies and propaganda of Jiang Zemin and his regime. After he was released, this practitioner clarified the truth to people using his personal experience and posted many truth-clarifying posters and banners. Another practitioner, a renowned swimming athlete and medallist in the Olympic Games, Asia Games and World Championships, shared the physical and spiritual benefits of practicing Falun Dafa and the big impact in Chinese Swimming Circles brought about by her withdrawal from the CCP.

Other practitioners shared their experiences in the areas of how to study the Fa more and better, how to do well the three things, clarify the truth with righteous thoughts, upgrade xinxing during truth-clarification, and how best to cooperate with each other as a whole body. Young practitioners from the Minghui School recited 6 poems of Master's as well as Lunyu. To conclude the program, seven practitioners went onstage and sang several songs composed by practitioners.

On the evenings of November 4 and 5, practitioners held a group Fa study and discussion. The atmosphere was very dynamic and the discussions continued after midnight.

In the early morning of November 6, practitioners went to Haeundae, one of the tourist attractions in Busan. At the Haeundae Beach near the site where the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is to be held, practitioners formed the Chinese Characters, "Falun Dafa." They then held a rally at the Busan Train Station Plaza to call for the end of the persecution. Following the rally, the practitioners prepare for another parade.

The parade started from the train station and went across Busan's downtown (6 kilometers). The practitioners' procession consisted of more than 100 banners and flags, a waist drum troupe, an anti-torture exhibit and a dance troupe. The spectacular site attracted many people. Some couldn't help saying, "Wow, Falun Gong! So many people!"

This large parade, with so many practitioners, is the first one in Busan and made a sensation in the local community. Several media outlets came to report on the event. In the days leading up to the APEC in Busan, the parade left a deep impression in the hearts of local residents and tourists alike, and demonstrated the beauty of Falun Dafa.
