International magazine AsiaN in an article that polished in 24th of December talked about this performance:

South Korea Kyunghee University students majored in non-arts related fields and without any experience in theater or acting went to the stage and let their hearts out to prepare for a performance they have never done in their lives.

It was to let the world know more about Kopino, children born between a Korean father and Filipino mother. Focusing on the suffering of the Kopino children, ’Kopino Operama’ was held last December 22nd in the Digital Art Hall in Sangam-dong, Seoul. In the play, the mother of Marie, the main character, passes away, leaving her on her own to look for her biological father.

The main character, Marie, was played by Park Kyeong-ah and President Jeong, a businessman, was played by jo Yo-hwan. Both are students are communications students from Kyunghee University. Marie’ mother, Lily, was played by Kim Jeong-in, a student majoring in trade. There are approximately 30 thousand Kopinos in the Philippines. It rises as a social issue as the Korean fathers abandon their children and do not take responsibility. Directed by Hwang Tae-jun, a student majoring in composing, he notes that “We want to let Kopino children to know that we share the suffering that they experience” and that “while most of us are non-arts major students, we have practiced for this play and have slept only for 3 hours every day with our goal to relay our message.”

Aian Caringal, a diplomat from the Philippine Embassy said in a message after the play that, “This play is way far better than any Hallyu drama or K-pop performance” and that “the messages of support and understanding of Kopino children in the Philippines will be delivered.”

Humanitas Professor Claudio Jung, leading his students in preparation for this play notes that, “For this performance, the students contacted about countless companies and media outlets but we only got a reply from 2 news companies.” “This performance goes beyond being a theatrical play as the students themselves tried to understand social issues and made their best for the performance, “ says Jung.

After the performance, cast members gave a collection of their messages and a small amount to be delivered to Kopino children through the Philippine Embassy in Korea. [http://kor.theasian.asia/archives/130049]

According to the feedback of one Filipino student in Korea “Eva Marie Wang” student in graduated school in major of Interdisciplinary Studies in Global Education Cooperation, who was between audience in Kopino performance and wrote this note in her Facebook:

I should say, this performance is a testament that students are powerful agents of raising awareness. This Operama is a 3 month journey of 70 students attending an elective class on Operama at Kyounghee University. It is a teamwork to proceed on details, to reflect together and make art relevant.

It is not simply an art class, it is praxis.

Well done students, well done.

Do Ho Suh’s Fabric Residences

Welcome To The Cloth House: Do Ho Suh’s Fabric Residences

Do Ho Suh’s floating fabric structures explore the concept of “home” and the relationship between the nomadic artist and his temporary living quarters. The South Korean sculptor recreates his former residences — crammed studios, traditional family units, Manhattan pre-war apartment buildings — in diaphanous silk or polyester, which he suspends over a metal framework, giving these solid structures a tenuous, transitory quality. Read more!
The South Korean Suh first received art-world attention with “Seoul Home/Seoul Home,” in which he replicated his childhood home, a traditional hanok in the Seongbuk-dong neighborhood, in gossamer jade-colored Chinese silk. Since then, the nomadic artist has paid homage to his young-adult apartments in New York City and Berlin.
