Korea has a long history with many dynasties. Before we jump into the ocean of fascinating things, I will add some details about the things you will likely see. I will give you hints on what to look for and the distinguishing styles among the different eras. After that, we will take a bus to the antique market—one of the biggest in Korea. There are many small shops that have good owners who have dedicated themselves for a long time to this business. They are proud and they know the history of what they are selling. You will get to hear many detailed and interesting stories if you are willing to listen. Plus, you will be able to see things that you've seen in the museums and in shops, but the difference will be that you couldn't touch these items in the museum. However, you may be able to at the market if you kindly ask the shop owner. I will introduce you to the shops that have lots of stuff that will attract your heart and with reasonable prices. Please note that Korean traditional antiques can be pricier than Chinese ones. You'll find it all, from small to big and cheap to expensive. Whatever pieces you find will keep you company with the memories you'll have of Seoul.
I'm a lover of old things. I think it is related to the fact I am a writer. Even as a child, wherever I would go, old things would fascinate me because of their history. From 1991, as a world traveler, I would visit antique shops all over the world. If you're lucky, you'll find the hidden gems with fascinating stories and they'll get packed in your suitcase and go home with you. In my case, they often become my writing inspiration and I'm thankful for them. I've published three books with the stories I've collected. Coming to Seoul and looking for inspiration? I know just where to take you.
Bottle of water and snack I'll provide a small snack for refreshment.
Bus fare I'll provide the fare for bus transportation from the museum to the market.

Korea University is one of Korea's versions of the Ivy League and many high school students hope to go there if they choose to study further. The museum is part of it and close to the exit where we will meet. The museum itself is not like the National Museum or anything, but it will give you a brief idea of history and what you'll see in antique shops. Dapshiplee Antique Market, one of the biggest antique markets in Korea, is three blocks away.

I'm not related to any of the shops, but I'm just a customer who likes old things. Each shop has a different character so if you come with an open mind, it might just open your third eye.
