South Korea Dolls Saekdongot Hanbok

Two Korean dolls, a boy and girl wearing the saekdongot Hanbok with the typical colorful stripes. The male on the left has an A-frame back carrier on his back (Jige) which is used by farmers to transport large amounts of goods. But in this case the jige contains some flowers. The female is holding the same kind of flower. It surely is a romantic scene!

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!
