Mrs. Ban Soon-taek stated: “As the young generation, you have many opportunities, you have a beautiful smile and having a beautiful smile helps. Most people love those who always show up with great smiles and they tend to accept and help those individuals. More importantly a good moral conduct is critical to one’s success. It is very important to remain humble, forgiving and diligent.”Ms.  Long Long thanked her for these enlightening suggestions and asked, “Is it true that your husband Mr. Ban Ki-Moon can speak Chinese and actually writes Chinese calligraphy? " Mrs. Ban Soo-taek confirmed, "Yes,"and stated that she also speak a little Chinese. "But I am not as good as I used to be because I practice less now. Calligraphy is not only a form of art, but also a good way to cultivate one’s temper. We admire Chinese art and culture very much. And I would love to express my good wishes to China, a great country, through you.”During the event, Ms. Long Long arranged photography time for diplomats’ wives with Mrs. Ban Soo-taek. Mrs. Ban Soo-taek thanked Long Long with a warm hug and praised her for her kind help and warm heart.
