A Moving Comment by MC Kim Tei-ssi
“This is a country without borders.”
- In response to MC Ryuji Miyamoto- san’s comment, “just where is this?!”
On stage was:
a Korean born actor (BYJ) speaking Korean and Japanese,
a Korean born MC, Kim Tei-ssi speaking Korean and fluent Japanese,
a German born Korean, and president of the Korea Tourism Organization, Lee Charm-ssi speaking fluent Korean and VERY good Japanese,
a Japanese translator, Rie Nemoto-san (also translator of BYJ’s book) speaking Korean and Japanese,and himself speaking Japanese and a bit of Korean!
(Also, Korean lacquer artist, Jun Yong Bok sonsen-nim entertained the audience earlier in the event in fluent Japanese throughout.)
Thank you Kim Tei-ssi, for expressing this wonderful sight so beautifully!
