Things Korean is a useful guide to traditional life in Korea, presented in an accessible and attractive format. O-Young Lee, former Korean Minister of Culture gives us a survey of native objects from Korea, from totems (Changsung) to hair-pins (binyo), crock pots (Changdokdae) to temple bells (Jong), scissors (Kawi) to graves (mudon) explaining their significance and place in everyday Korean life.
Each item in the book is listed under its English and Korean name; a glossary is provided to further assist the reader. Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 color illustrations, Things Korean is a magnificent celebration of Korean culture.
