Mr. Lin attended the Chinese Spectacular in Kaohsiung and praised the show highly. He said, "It's the first time that I saw such a performance! I was deeply impressed. The entire performance was compact and smooth. The hosts linked up every program with brief explanations, and it was really well-done. What was even more commendable was that the content was historical; for example, the legends 'The Loyalty of Yue Fei' and 'Lady of the Moon,' were presented and interpreted through dance dramas. It's a very good learning experience. We learn about Chinese culture and also appreciate the beautiful dances."
Mr. Lin was deeply impressed by the dances "Water Sleeves," "Lightness and Grace," and "Drummers of the Tang Court." He said, "No matter if presenting masculine strength or feminine charm, the performers' movements were precise and in sync. The melody of the music perfectly matched the dance performance. The change of dance postures, be it soft or powerful, presented strength and depth. It has the positive effect of inspiring and purifying our heart and soul. Also, the backdrop designs, and costumes were well coordinated, rich and diversified. All in all, I thought the show was stunning!"
