South Korea Doll Paju Imjingak

Souvenir doll from the Imjingak resort in the city of Paju, wearing Hanbok the traditional Korean dress. The Imjingak resort is a popular tourist destination related to the Korean war and the wish for unification of North and South Korea. She is holding a round wooden disk with a two colored taegeuk symbol on it in one hand and a fan with a tricolored taegeuk symbol on it in the other, as well as a flower branch. The sticker in front of the stand reads ‘Sight visiting at Imjingak’ and the gold text in Korean language along the side of her stand translates to something like ‘True goodness and beauty human figure’ (according to Google Translate). The sticker with the tricolored taegeuk symbol reads ‘…Ministry of Commerce and Industry…’ (partly translated with Google).

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches this doll, to show you how the people living in South Korea are dressed in their traditional costume.

There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!

Happy collecting,
