Fans have been an essential and valuable tool in Korean performing arts, and are often used for dancing. The fan dance revolves around folding, unfolding, rolling, and twirling a fan with both hands. The aesthetics it embodies and seeks is a delicate harmony of the profound tradition of Korean dance and modern beauty. Its formative features include heaviness, flexibility, and resilience.

A tea ceremony is a tradition involving brewing tea and offering it to guests or drinking it. The tea ceremony assigns special meanings to each process, from picking tea leaves and brewing tea to finding good water for brewing, and ultimately drinking or serving it correctly. It also includes mental cultivation by devoting oneself to these processes. After the tea ceremony, you can experience traditional games played, as entertainment, or recreation.
