From the air we breathe to the wood we use, the forest has always been generous. Thanks to the massive tree-planting effort made by the entire public in the 1970s and 80s, Korea’s degraded forests turned green. Then in 1998, the government’s forest policy transitioned from “tree-planting” to “forest cultivating” to enhance the efficiency of forest ecosystems. Every year on December 11th, International Mountain Day aims to increase awareness about the importance of mountains. In commemoration of the day, let’s take a moment to think about all the things we rely on forest and mountains for.

Kim Jee-yeon Accordion Pops Orchestra, the only accordion orchestra in Korea, has won the Russian international accordion contest. They refuse to leave accordion in people’s minds as an instrument usually played at circuses or a public market in the countryside by playing a range of musical genres, such as classic and chanson. We meet the crew’s conductor Kim Jee-yeon and other members who tell us why accordion is such a fascinating instrument and play us beautiful tunes.

Hanji is our cultural legacy that is living on for a thousand years. Made with bark from mulberry trees, the handmade papers are well-known for their sturdiness and durability, making them a perfect material to be used in our daily lives and restore damaged paper records. Hanji Culture and Industry Center is the first facility in Korea, where visitors can touch and experience hanji collected from 19 traditional hanji makers nationwide. We visit HanjI Culture and Industry Center to discover the paper’s versatility.
