My main focus for this project was to use Minhwa and folktales to convey narratives about Korean people in contemporary society. ‘Minhwa’ is a traditional Korean folk style painting, used to illustrate the ‘common people’ and portray the culture of Korean society. These illustrations are my interpretation of today’s version of Minhwa. Based on the Korean community in a competitive and fast-paced society, they aim to create an empathy among those living in contemporary Korea.
