Their most popular program is the annual Narae or "Wings" performance, which has had the honor of showing at Meany Hall at the University of Washington four times. The show depicts a traditional Korean folktale with themes of family, love, sacrifice, and perseverance.
Many of the people who keep the show running are volunteers. Their dedication keeps the doors of the center open.
Sinae says, “there have been challenges over the years, but we’re here, and we’re not going anywhere.”
But it’s their newest undertaking, a renovated library for 15,000 donated books that will give the community more ongoing access to the center.
Anyone is welcome to participate in their weekly or biweekly classes for boys and girls, small children, young adults, and adults.
If you aren’t keen on study, but still want to experience the immersive celebration of Korean culture that Morning Star is known for, students perform year-round at public and private events. Just call and ask Sinae for more information.
