dc.descriptionThis is one of hundreds of 60-second radio spots created by the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) for Kansas Public Radio (KPR). The purpose of this outreach program is to introduce the people of Kansas to the culture and current issues of East Asia.
dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: First there was Pop Idol. Then there was American Idol. Soon there will be Kung Fu Idol. Well, technically this is not the title of the show but it might as well be. The show's goal is to find the greatest kung fu master in China and to star this person in a kung fu movie to be produced by the Shaolin monks. Shaolin is well known for its Zen practices and excellence in martial arts. In fact, Shaolin's brand of martial arts has influenced movies from Kill Bill to The Matrix and spawned at least one TV show. Soon showbiz began to define Shaolin's mission rather than vice versa. Kung fu idol aims to give Shaolin back the control. We can only hope that there will be more than "the sound of one hand clapping" as the credits roll. #ceas #china #hacker #tsutsui
