The World Taekwondo demonstration team made a triumphant return last week after making an incredible performance at the season finale of "America's Got Talent."
Their final performance received the most views on YouTube among the finalists.
It was a great achievement for the team and for Taekwondo, and an opportunity to introduce the sport to a wider audience.

We have Shin Hye-ri, one of the members of the World Taekwondo (WT) demonstration team in the studio with us to share her experience. Great to have you on the show.

First of all, congratulations on getting to the finals. Although you didn't end up in the top 5, you ended up in the top 10 which is a great feat. What did this competition mean to you and your team? How did you feel after your final performance?

How did your team get on AGT in the first place?

With members from both Korea and the U.S., how did you manage to practice with such a huge team?

How long did you practice together in Los Angeles?

I'm sure it was a great journey starting from the first performance, getting to the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals. What were some difficulties you had during each of those performances?

Are there any interesting or memorable episodes you'd like to share from your experience? Which stage was most meaningful for you?

How do you think the foreign audience received your performance? How do you think they understood Taekwondo?

After your final performance, you held up a banner that said, "Peace is more precious than triumph." Was that a collective message from the team together?

It wasn't a solo performance. Did you like how your teamwork was?

Sin Hye-ri, member of the World Taekwondo demo team fresh back from an incredible debut on the world stage. Thanks for sharing your story with us tonight and best of luck to you and your team.
