I have acquired a new interest, because, as it turns out, I don’t have enough. This one is Korean Art. I have already believed that Korea is at a fascinating faze of cultural development, even within the domain of Korean Pop culture. Western fascination for Korean culture is growing exponentially, as more and more Korean media is available. Korea is already recognized as the Bollywood of East Asia.
Modern Korean art is also a growing medium. And having lived in Korea, I have witnessed Korea’s growing fascination with art, to such an extent that art is often seen outdoors and in random locations (especially Hongdae). Street art is popular in all its forms in Seoul and even with the architecture, Korean’s taste for modern art is apparent.
