Video 'Until We Rise Again' encourages people to work together to overcome COVID-19 Updated: 2020-08-25 17:05:56 KST

Powerful dance moves and dramatic music.
The South Korean government and 1Million Dance Studio have uploaded a video to encourage people to wear masks and follow social distancing measures well until we overcome the pandemic.
Lia Kim, the chief choreographer expresses this by beginning the performance far apart from others while wearing a protective suit and mask.
At the end of the video, the performers throw off their masks and get closer, showing that by complying with health guidelines, they have helped end the pandemic.
The video has proved to be a big hit.
A week after its upload on YouTube, it has already hit the one-million view mark.

"I believe the number of views was high thanks to Lia Kim and 1Million Dance Studio's professional choreography that made this public advertisement very sophisticated. People say the government and young artists' collaboration looks very fresh."

Not only Koreans but viewers from overseas were mesmerized by the video.

"So the whole message of this video is to hold on to that dream. Hold on to the dream until that day when we can finally take our masks again. I'm very impressed with the production quality of this."

"You can even see a short version of the video on several media towers in the busiest streets of Seoul."

The 60-second video is being played at places such as the outdoor advertising panels of COEX Media Tower and Parnas Media Tower.
The video will be running on the screens until early September.

"All of we are trying to do things but we can't because of the virus, we have to stay at homes all days so I think this kind of idea to give hopes to people, it's actually a very good idea."

Like how the artists light up the dark night, the video tells us that one day we will be able to rise again if we follow the health guidelines.
