at Cheongryangri Market ahead of Lunar New Year's Day

13 x 19 cm sketchbook

I went to Cheongryangri Market located at Dongdaemun-ku to buy some groceries. I walked from Kyeongdong oriental medicine market to feel the all the bustling of big markets. Roads were so filled with customers who came to buy foodstuffs for Lunar New Year holidays that it was hard to pass easily without touching other's shoulders. Policemen were there for helping traffic regulation.  Korean people cherish ancestors with foods and memorial service. During sketching these one man addressed me. He told about that his uncle was the famous artist in Korea, "Oh Ji-ho".  He told that his father was good at art too. Sketching presented an unexpected communication in such a crowded market.
