“Until when do you want to dance?”

“I want to dance until my daughter Jion is old enough to remember my dancing”

This is the conversation I had, a year ago, with HaeJin Yoon who visited Korean National Ballet after a long time.
When I became part of the Korean National Ballet, HaeJin was already a principal dancer.
Afterward, she joined les ballet de montecarlo, but soon had to quit because of the injuries.

The life of dancers.
The moments on stages are beautiful yet short.

Throughout my career, I have seen many fellow dancers retire. Each of them had their own reason, but, surely, lack of passion for dance wasn’t one.

Even after the retirements, their passion ceaselessly dances in their hearts.

The video is about a ballerina’s comeback for her daughter and is made for all dancers who still remember and long for the moments on the stage.
