Story of it:
The traditional culture of Korea is represented in the streets of Insa-dong. During the Joseon Dynasty, the royal studio for painters was here, and in the 1930’s, shops began selling paper, old books, writing tools, brushes, water bottles, stone weights, and more. Soon, shops for antiques and old paintings followed suit. Today, the streets of Insa-dong are filled with antiques, traditional crafts, galleries, tea-houses, traditional restaurants, and more.
