Experience Korea [EK]
Hangeul, one of the most indigenous and unique creations of the nation, was introduced in 1443 by King Sejong (1418-1450), the 4th King of the Joseon Dynasty. It was created to help all commoners to easily read and write. In addition, Hangeul is a national written language that does not have any direct influence from pre-existing writing systems. The language is very easy for all to learn, evidenced by Korea’s illiteracy rates being one of the lowest in the world.
Hanbok is the traditional attire of the Korean people. Worn daily up until just 100 years ago, these days it is only worn on festive occasions or special anniversaries. It is a formal dress and most Koreans keep a hanbok for special times in their life. We will visit the Namsan Hanok Village for tour and partake in traditional culture experience programs, writing Hangeul and wearing Hanbok. This will make you to have a very special memory and moment in Seoul.
