[The Hankyoreh, June 19 2007] [Editorial] Today's lives, 'mortgaged' to doubt and worry

I went to see "Jump" the other day, the first time I'd seen a show with friends. It was a well-structured martial arts farce. It has been popular with audiences, and indeed the place was packed. There were young and middle-aged people in the audience, as well as elementary school-aged students, but nowhere did I see anyone middle or high school aged. I will refrain from preaching about how this demographic needs art and culture to stimulate their sensitivities and imagination, but really, the show might as well have been tailored for teenagers and yet none was to be seen.
