Future Story started in the Seoul station at 3 pm on April 25th. At that time, Salad planned to do guerilla performance in the Seoul station as a result of a creative workshop with a theme of ‘refugee.’ However, accidently, North Korea’s broadcasting towards the South that the military action will start within 3~4 minutes for celebrating the 80th anniversary of the national foundation was aired through the MBN news on the central TV monitor in the Seoul station when members of Salad arrived to prepare for performance. Participants suddenly felt fear that they would become refugees. The performance was canceled and the play was done in the road. The director continued the second, third, and fourth workshops with students of Tohoku Joseon School located in Sendai, Japan, Burmese Ethnic School in Maesot of Thailand, and Mongolia School in Korea. finishes as the guerilla performance canceled in the Seoul Station is shown through the Seoul Marginal Theater Festival 2012 and lively broadcasted with refugees of Japan, Thailand, and Korea.

The Series of Unrespected Death’ (plan/writing/directing: Park Kyong Ju)’ refocusing on migration and death has dealt with stories of Korean miners dispatched to Germany, foreign migrant workers in the Yeosu Detention Center, and one migrant woman who died after international marriage like human trafficking. In the fourth installment, Future Story, the series, in which migrant people themselves, not professional actors, have told their stories on the stage will close its theatrical experiment with refocusing on the issue of ‘refugees’ and ‘people in a marginal line.’ is a kind of road play that play, movie, and public art are combined. The director Park Kyong Ju goes a road trip with a camera to meet people in a marginal line in Sendai of Japan hit by tsunami and a Myanmar refugee camp in Thailand.
