Hi, guys.

         In KNU summer camp, we went to Seowon Confucian Academy. This is a spiritual birthplace of the Korean intellectual where the places that served scholars in learning Confucian system during the Joseon dynasty. Seonbi is the intellectual people who studied the works of Confucius and Mencius. They usually gathered for study in the Seowon. The Seowon was once a shrine commemorating a respected teacher or classical stage, a research institute for academic learning and a school for teaching and cultivating future scholars.

In Seowon, we get a chance to try Hanbok, the Korean traditional wears. There are various type of hanbok such as hanbok for geisha, palace woman, king, queen, scholars, and princess that we could try. Besides that, we also get to experienced the tea ceremony that was taught by Seongseninm , a courtesy called for a teacher. She showed us how to brew, served and drinks Korean green tea in the right manner. We get to try the tea and some snacks such as mooncakes.
