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.
Happiness, its good to smile, its good to cry, so good, so exciting
By Yong Hye Won Poet
Poem title: Happiness
