I am the CEO of the WAYYU. As I felt sorry for the fact that the hanbok is not generalized in society or considered as everyday wear, I started to develop a new culture. Today, many customers are looking for our brand and using our products. So, we are grateful and having a good time. We started this fun experience as a way for people to learn about the hanbok and modern Korean life.

So this was a unique experience that I will remember forever. Making my own fan was harder than I thought. But nonetheless very interesting and it gives you the opportunity to be creative. Yu Ji won was a great teacher. And also super sweet and talented at her own designs. The place was easy to find from Hapjeong station.

She was super amazing. She’s really talented. She even has earrings some that she made herself that are beautiful. We brought a few and couldn’t be happier with our new earrings, or our new fans.

It wasn’t a very interesting experience for me. I didn’t really learn anything new. One reason could be my own complete lack of artistic talent and the other was the communication problem.

We really enjoyed this experience. They thought us about the history of traditional and modern hanbok, the design of eastern traditional art and techniques used to paint the fans. The hosts were super patient and kind and made the experience very worthwhile, they even directed us to a local food strip that was delicious. Thank you for all your kindness and for all the great conversation! Special thanks to the 2 friends there for translating. We would definitely do this experience again.

This was perfect amongst all the busy travelling on our trip and really allowed us to take some time out and enjoy the company of Korean locals.
