(Minghui.org) May 13, 2023, was the 24th World Falun Dafa Day and the 31st anniversary of the public introduction of Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa practitioners gathered at Blue House Square in Seoul, South Korea, and practiced exercises together to celebrate the occasion. They showcased the beauty of Falun Dafa and spread the facts about Dafa to the public.
Practitioners gathered in front of the Blue House around 9 a.m., wearing their yellow T-shirts and white pants. They demonstrated the five Falun Dafa exercises, slowly and gracefully, accompanied by the melodious exercise music. The magnificent and peaceful scene of the group exercising with the Samgaksan Mountain behind the Blue House was vibrant and refreshing. Many Seoul residents and tourists came to inquire about Falun Dafa.
The Blue House served as the official residence and workplace for every president of South Korea from 1948 until 2022. It was also the constitutional institution and place where government officials worked.
The Blue House gets its name from the blue-green tiled roof of the president’s official residence. The Blue House has been the name used since its construction in the 1940s to the present.
President Yoon Suk-yeol chose not to work at the Blue House when he took office in 2022, and he opened the property to the public. The Blue House has received approximately 3.42 million visitors in the past year, and more than 20,000 tourists come here for sightseeing every weekend.
Practitioners did all five Falun Dafa exercises in two hours on this beautiful sunny morning with a gentle spring breeze. Time passed quickly, as if it had gone by in a flash, some practitioners said.
In previous years, they practiced together in Seoul’s city center to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day. This year’s event took place at the Blue House with flowers and trees and Samgaksan Mountain as the backdrop. It was greatly significant to introduce Falun Dafa to the public in this place, and practitioners enjoyed the beauty of nature.
Practitioners took photos in front of the Blue House on this joyous day to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the public introduction of Falun Dafa and the 24th World Falun Dafa Day. They expressed their gratitude to their Master for his compassionate salvation. After the celebration, they went to various sites in Seoul and continued to clarify the truth and introduce Falun Dafa to the public.
