Invites Korean Friends!
TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Media OutReach – 7 February 2023 – The “2023 Taiwan Lantern Festival” is the first major large-scale international tourism event after the relaunch of inbound tourism in Taiwan, with the iconic event returning to Taipei after a 23-year absence.
The main lantern is installed at Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall and is designed by renowned artist Akibo Lee, creating the first robot-shaped hi-tech Jade Hare main lantern work. The theme concept was inspired by Taiwan’s standout semiconductor industry, with the work harnessing a number of digital technologies and other special effects. The Golden Melody award-winning musician George Chen was invited to compose the theme song for the main lantern, featuring uplifting music and digital motion pictures. What’s more, Jade Hare will change effects based on the lineup of exciting programs. The event will see Taiwanese Olympic gold medalist Hsing-Chun Kuo perform vivid expressions for the Jade Hare through facial motion capture technology. The performance symbolizes the vitality of Taiwan’s freedom and democracy, and shows the infinite possibilities of the country’s future.
The Tourism Bureau of Taiwan noted that the “2023 Taiwan Lantern Festival” is the first large-scale international event in Taiwan in the post-pandemic era, and is hoped to attract foreign visitors to join in on the fun!
