Prior to the performance, a commemorative speech was given by Woo Won-sik, a member of the National Assembly, who is the chairman of the General Hong Bum Do Memorial Project. He concluded his speech by saying, "I would like to express my respect for the Kazakhstan National Academy of Arts and Sciences Koryo Theater, which has been protecting our unique culture, spirit, and national pride for more than 90 years in a distant and exotic land without succumbing to the harsh environment and conditions."
This was followed by a congratulatory speech by Mr. Nurgali.ARYSTANOV, the new Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the Republic of Korea. In his congratulatory remarks, Mr. Nurgali.ARYSTANOV, the new Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the Republic of Korea, said that Korea and Kazakhstan have a long history of friendship and friendship like brotherly countries. Kazakhstan's National Academy of Arts praised the Koryo Theater, saying that the Korean national theater is the only theater in the world that receives foreign capital and support from abroad.
The play was then titled 40 Days of Miracles and began with the memory of General Hong Bum Do.
In 1863, a small number of families left Korea and began migrating to Yeonju. Between 1865 and 1869, the number began to increase rapidly.
As the number of Koreans in DPRK increased, the soviet union government realized that having more Koreans in the country could cause problems and forced them to relocate.
The 40-day journey by train began. Along the way, they encountered dying people and suffered from frostbite and had to have their hands and feet amputated. The pain of childbirth was followed by the sorrow of sending a child to heaven without breathing.
At this time, the Goryeo people were traveling through the desolate and cold Siberian plains without knowing where they were going. After 40 days, they reached Kazakhstan. In a country where they had nothing to wear or eat, the Kazakhs welcomed them with food and clothing.
Today, their descendants live in Kazakhstan as politicians, businessmen, professors, and artists who have distinguished themselves in their fields of expertise and have not forgotten their Koryo pride. As a result of the dedication and hard work of their ancestors, who sowed the seeds of poverty through song, their descendants have kept the Korean pride alive in other countries
