In-sadong Street - Traditional Korean Shopping
One of the crafts you could buy are the Korean traditional wooden masks. These were worn in war by soldiers and horses, ceremonially, for burial rites in jade and bronze and for shamanistic ceremonies to drive away evil spirits; to remember the faces of great historical figures in death masks; and in the arts, particularly in ritual dances, courtly, and theatrical plays.
Lots of students were able to purchase gifts for themselves and for family members. The traditional gifts will truly help us all remember the Korean culture and have something to remember the trip by.
