Jaeduk Kim himself thinks that inner characteristics of contemporary dance contains mostly of combat, sorrow, and desires. With a one-dimensional facial expression in accompany with looking towards the stage with passionate eyes in anger, weeping in sadness and more. Mass media portrates and delivers inner characteristics of dance with ‘clear message’ or ‘preciseness.’ As most pieces intend an introduction, development and conclusion and lead the audiences to feel catharsis at the climax. This may have begun from the western culture of art.
As an Asian, ‘jeong jung dong’ seems to go well with our identity in attitudes of art. In the piece ‘meditation’, no anger, sadness, fierceness is expressed without losing mildness. For people in the modern society who live busy lives are in need to feel ‘jeong jung dong’ in comfort.
