Korean center presents fairytale-themed exhibit
THE EXHIBIT “Once Upon A Time… Hanbok Fairytale of Wooh Nayoung,” a reimagined world of fairytales with Korean twist, runs until Feb. 28 at the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) in the Philippines. Artist Wooh Nayoung’s experience in majoring in Korean painting and working in a game company led to creating her own style combining Western and Eastern characteristics. She is currently promoting the beauty of the traditional Korean dress, the hanbok, to the world through her work and collaborations with Hollywood and Disney. The exhibit is meant to make the visitor feel like they had stepped into a giant fairytale book. Princess characters like Cinderella and Rapunzel are dressed in hanbok and their animal friends are as well. In the children section of KCC’s library, a coloring station has been set up for visitors to reimagine their own fairytales. Visitors who show themselves enjoying the exhibition in their social media can present their posts at the KCC reception area to get a set of postcards.
