Officially called Bokjumeoni, these ‘lucky bags’ are coin purses used to bring good fortune and traditionally come in the five colours that represent the the five elements of Asian philosophy; red, blue, yellow, white and black.

But you can’t have a coin purse without coins, which is why every box will also include three traditional Korean coins. Korean rulers began making their own coins over a thousand years ago, after they were introduced by Chinese settlers – originally known as wuzhuin Chinese, Korean’s called these coins oshuchon or ‘five grain‘.

 

Traditional ‘Hahoe’ DIY Mask Pendant

Our last culture item in this month’s box is a DIY mask pendant, which you can colour and paint any way you like.

Traditionally, Korean masks are a frenzy of exaggerated features and vivid primary colours to symbolise the personality of the mask’s character – so don’t hold back, go crazy with your colours and enjoy creating your own little piece of traditional Korean art!
