Korean folk village

23 Jul

With Ewha university international students from different countries and different cultures, all of us visited the place where bring the Korea dynasty’s traditional. In folk village, I can see many original complex Chinese words in some furniture, they make me feel close. The most interesting thing is that there is some antique child toy I had saw in Korea drama. For example윷놀이, the game will throw the윷놀이and work in the a square. Each time you throw will show the different윷놀이, then you should go with different appearance in a square line. It’s similar to Taiwan’s (senpei uranai)『擲筊.』In Chinese culture, we use a piece of wood carved in half-moon shaped in temple. In the process of pleading to gods above we use TWO of them and throw in the floor. If the smooth side is up and the other rough one is up, too, that means “yes” as in pic one. If two smooth sides are up, it means “no” as in pic two. If two rough sides are up, it means you should do it again until you have the comment (yes) or (no). In Taiwan, it’s a belief to people for asking, but it’s a fun game in korea. They use in the similar way, but both of them create the different culture to people. That’s funny to understand the culture which in a different way!
