BONUS ITEM:
HANDMADE CALLIGRAPHY BOOKMARK

We came across this beautiful handcrafted bookmark in the Hongdae Free Market (Arts and Crafts Market in Seoul), and the lovely artist Jang hyeonju worked with us to make one for each of you! The quote comes from a poem by Yong hyewon, from her poem titled ‘Happiness’. We chose this quote to share with you because it depicts that in happiness, we will have times that make us laugh, but we must also go through tough times and endure it, that is what true happiness is.

기쁨 웃어도 좋고 울어도 좋다.

마구좋다 신난다.

⁃ 용혜원

Literal meaning:

Happiness, its good to smile, its good to cry, so good, so exciting

By Yong Hye Won Poet

Poem title: Happiness
