By creating this multi-media performance piece, I hope to educate and spread awareness on the happenings of the Korean War by looking through the perspective of my grandfather as a North Korean runaway and eventually a South Korean soldier. My end goal is that people will not only be touched by his story, but come away with a greater understanding and deeper grasp of the lasting effects of the Korean War. I would also personally like to gain a stronger appreciation for my heritage as a Korean-American.
