Miraculous Memories

A small follow-up on my memories of “Miracle”, the “modern play of passion” I had witnessed back in May—which seems like half the world away, by the way.

First, someone put a video on youtube, seven minutes in the middle of the masses, a scene which I merely skimmed as “some kind of cellestial battle”.

Second, in the current edition of Sogang Hakbo (서강학보), my university’s newspaper, students talk about their most memorable campus experience of this year. KIM Yeong-hui (김영희), a Sogang freshman majoring in English literature, sums up her experiences:

The English Department’s Street Theatre

The Street Theatre Miracle, held under the auspices of the English department in my first semester, remains most strongly in my memory. I really enjoyed that the school, the students all could participate and experience this unique event of Western street theatre, unfamiliar in our country.

영문과 길거리 거리극

1학기 때 영문과 주최로 열렸던 거리극 <미라클>이 가장 기억에 남아요. 우리나라에서 친숙하지 않은 서양 거리극이라는 특이한 행사를 단과대와 학과 학생들이 모두 참여해 치를 수 있었다는 점에서 굉장히 즐거웠어요.

Thus, I certainly was not the only one who has lasting impressions of this Miracle
