In September, Anna Tohobytska, who is studying the Korean language at a university in Korea, participated in the KFVN’s Yongin Folk Village program, together with the Korean Culture Class team. This native of Ukraine shared her thoughts about the experience as follows.
Anna: The pottery-making session was incredibly rewarding. Thanks to the friendly instructions of the guide, I was able to make something that looks nice. (Laughs!)
Anna: I’d seen it in a TV series once before, but I have never visited here.
Anna: It was very interesting. The physiognomical findings were actually similar to my actual personality, which is fascinating. It’s amazing to think that this practice is so old.
Anna: Not only was it a good time, but I learned a lot about Korean culture, which was rewarding. Thanks to events like this, foreigners like me can learn more about Korea.
Anna: I’d like to thank the Korean Culture Class Team for taking such good care of us, from beginning to end. But I wonder if I would get the same diagnosis if I visited another physiognomist? (Laughs!)
