Over the weekend while I was out snapping photos, I literally stumbled upon the Annual Buckchon Traditional Craft Festival (I was en route to the Chicken Art Museum which I've been curious to check out and now still haven't visited!).
It was really cool to see the craftsmen and women showing off their work and taking pride in it, too. I've noticed that aside from traditional food dishes, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of pride in or promotion of other domestically-produced things. For example, my friends and I love to visit Insadong but lament the fact that most items for sale are made in China.
Korea, embrace your artisans and cultivate their talent!
