Many cultural shows are vulgar and people still watch a lot of it because there is nothing else. Shen Yun inherits outstanding art and culture from ancient China. I hope it can come to China soon."
Mr. Sun also pointed out that Chinese culture is a divinely-inspired culture. It talks about unity of man and heaven as well as good being rewarded and evil meeting with retribution. "We must inherit and carry on all the cultural properties," said Mr. Sun.
