Though with a slightly off name (“Experiencing” should probably be “Experience”), the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation provides a few Traditional Culture Experiencing Zone sites for interesting tastes of Korean culture throughout Seoul’s Incheon Airport.
Korean dancheong decorative coloring techniques could be sampled for free in an appealing hands-on environment at the location nearest my connection departure gate for Japan.
I wanted to paint one of these fans myself, probably doing something more abstract and violating the sample fan’s traditional coloring guidelines, but I had nowhere to safely transport such an artifact for the remainder of my journey to Japan. I elected to photograph others enjoying this unexpected opportunity.
Photo Details: This couple from New York provided a great photo opportunity after 7 AM when the staff showed up to open the Experiencing Zone. The airport was still quiet and there was no wait to take a turn at one of the tables. Coincidentally, these guys later sat directly across from me on the flight to Japan. They were visiting a friend in Osaka, but will also be visiting Kyoto (my destination and planned home base) during their vacation.
