introductions to Korean Art

"There's something about Korean art that on the surface seems very simple, but its all about minimal aesthetic.  So there's nothing incredibly showy.  There's nothing over-the-top.  And the more you look at it, the more you appreciate its depth."

Introduction to Korean woodblock printing.
This video features Arirang's most annoying English voice-over narrator.  At 5:12, he mentions that the wood blocks are stored at "Hane-sa Monastery".  The correct pronunciation is "Hae - in - Sa" and "sa" means temple or monastery.
