VTV.vn - More than 40 Korean royal and folk paintings and traditional crafts are on display at an exhibition titled Ancient Seoul and Korean traditional folk paintings at the Korean Cultural Centre until June 17th.

This is part of celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the Korean Cultural Centre in Vietnam.

Visitors have a chance to learn more about Korean culture through folk paintings, handicraft items and traditional trays of the local people from during the Josun Dynasty. The pieces also attempt to convey aspects of daily and spiritual life, showing their respect to the king, and hopes for happiness.

Luong Xuan Doan, Deputy Head of Vietnam Fine Arts Association said: “There are similarities between folk paintings from South Korea and Vietnam”. 

The exhibition features folk paintings by artist Jung Seung Hui. She was the student of Kim Man Hui, the only Korean artist recognized as intangible cultural heritage. She has been contributing greatly to the current development of national folk paintings.

Jung Seung Hui, Folk painting artisan, South Korea said: “I’m showing folk paintings of treepie and tigers. The exhibition helps me promote Korean culture to the Vietnamese. I also had conversations with Vietnamese painters and learned more about Vietnamese folk paintings. I hope that we will have more chances to discuss arts in the future”.

Park Nark Jong Director, Korean Cultural Centre said: “This exhibition plays an important part in cultural exchange between South Korea and Vietnam. I wish that through the event, Vietnamese people find out more about Korean cultural heritage, especially folk paintings”.

Besides paintings, Korean royal dishes are also available to try at the event. A similar exhibition will also take place from May 20th to May 28th to introduce Vietnamese paintings in Seoul.
