Looking at wall-hangings in Insa-dong. Insa-dong is a small "traditional" area in Seoul, where you can buy traditional Korean arts and crafts. There are a few galleries as well. This is maybe my favourite place to visit in Seoul, even though the novelty has worn off and I now suspect that some of the "antique" little knickknacks are probably mass-produced in China. By the way, the first wall-hanging in this picture says haeng-bok, which means happiness (I think). The second one says hee-mang, but I'm not sure what that means. At first I thought it was "green pepper", but that's pi-mang. If anyone knows, help me out here.  Posted by Hello
