Co-produced with the Korea Foundation, Arirang broadcasts a special documentary titled “Korean Arts & Lifestyle” in three parts: “The Clothes, Foods and Houses of Early Korea,” “The Life of Koreans” and “The Beauty of Traditional Korean Arts.”
In part I, we travel back to early Korea to explore lifestyles and how they pursued a balance of arts and nature. Features include houses built with scientific logistics for lighting and wind in mind, comfortable clothes that reflect nature’s beauty and the cultivation of a healthy cuisine.
Part II addresses filial piety, a highly regarded and essential Korean virtue. Highlighting the fact that a rich culture is not born quickly, but rather, over time and lifetimes, for that matter, this program shows how Korea’s ancestors made history and how modern-day folks can best preserve their contributions.
Part III is all about traditional Korean arts, including traditional Korean drawings, music, and dances. Viewers will understand just how essential nature is to the realization of Korean arts through paintings that depict the authenticity of nature, through music made with completely natural instruments, and through dances that convey the cycle of life.
This three-part series is an opportunity for the global audience to better understand Korea, its arts and its lifestyles.
