There are 1.3 billion people in China, each with their own personal story...
41-year old Zhang Jun started learning Kun Qu at 12.
With a history of 600 years, Kun Qu is one of the most ancient types of opera China has to offer.
It was no longer very popular when Zhang Jun started out. So after graduation, he almost decided to pursue Hip-Hop.
But he was reluctant to let the opera go. "Kun Qu is so beautiful, and it shouldn't be allowed to die out."
He started performing rearranged Kun Qu pieces in universities in 1998, and even promoted Kun Qu in Starbucks, all in the hope that the younger generation would understand it.
"It is my goal to turn Kun Qu into something that all of us can enjoy, rather than something artsy that belongs in a museum."
