Steps in a new direction
When Wu Jiukun was invited to participate in the seventh World Dance Games, a street dance competition, which was held from Aug 9 to 11 in Zhengzhou, Henan province, he did not expect to be treated like a legend by people who he was meeting for the first time.
But that is what happened after Wu, clad in a pair of loose pants and sporting a bright red hair band, showcased his break dance moves at the gala on the last day of the competition.
After that performance, people gathered around him to ask for autographs and have pictures taken.
Speaking about the experience, Wu, 50, says: "It was the first time that I participated in WDG and the event was full of young people in their 20s.
"I thought they might have heard about me or watched my videos but I did not expect that they would know so much about me."
