1. How to wear Korean traditional clothes.
Koreans still bow to people occasionally. There is a guideline explaining how to bow, which is called '배례법' (Salute). It specifies how to bow, when to bow, rules when you bow, and etc. We'll conduct it ourselves with an instructor's easy explanation.
2. How to drink tea.
Traditional Korean clothes, Hanbok, are beautiful. However, it could be somewhat difficult to wear properly for foreigners. Through this opportunity, you'll try on Hanbok and learn how to wear it.
3. How to greet when wearing Korean traditional clothes.
There is also a way, 다례법, when we drink tea. What benefits can we get by learning it? First, you'll be decent. Superficially, the purpose of 다례법 seems to learn how to drink tea. However, the real purpose is to make people decent. You'll surely experience a change in yourself. Second, you can meditate. As a result, you'll be peaceful and mentally stable. There is a study of proving it. Aside from the benefits, there are more.
