[Zenith News=Byeon Jinhee] The play 'The Helmet: ROOM's Vol.1' will once again open at Sejong Center for the Performing Arts.
'The Helmet: Room's Vol.1', which kicks off on Tuesday, is a performance that will be divided into two space and time zones: Room Seoul and Room Aleppo. In each episode, Room Seoul will feature a story between a 'Big Room' and a student (Small Room), and Room Aleppo will feature 'White Helmet' (Big Room) and 'Child' (Small Room). It's a new form of play that runs on four performances of four scripts.
White Helmet, which appears in Room Aleppo, refers to a civilian rescue team operating at the site of Syria's civil war. The White Helmets go to the destroyed scene and act as volunteers for emergency services. It is also a symbol of international peace, which started with some 20 people in the Aleppo region of Syria in 2013 and is now joined by more than 3,000 people.
In addition, 'Baekgoldan', shown in Room Seoul, refers to a police unit that formed plainclothes police officers in 1987 and 1991 and acted in disguise to suppress and arrest the protesting crowd with unilateral force. When the police force suppressed the protesters, it was nicknamed the 'Baekgoldan' because of their blue jacket and white helmet costumes. During the 1987 pro-democracy movement, they still remain a symbol of national violence, 33 years later, after they created the tragedy of modern history with merciless violence in the process of suppressing protests.
As such, 'The Helmet: Room's Vol.1' tells the story of a key word for 'White Helmet'. They wear the same white helmet, but the meanings contained in the helmet have conflicting meanings. It is either worn to save people or to kill people.
Meanwhile, actors Kim Jongtae, Yang Seungri, So Junghwa, Kim Bojeong, Kim Kookhee, Kang Jungwoo and Kim Seulki, who are newly joining the cast of actors Lee Ho-young, Lee Jung-soo and Han Song-hee, who successfully wrapped up the premiere, are expected to show the story of 'Baekgoldan' and 'White Helmet'.
Meanwhile, 'The Helmet: ROOM's Vol. 1' will be performed at the S Theater of the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts from the 8th till 27th of February.
