Famous Koryo Fan

 
A fan was emerged in Korea very long ago. In view of the relics and records discovered, it is presumed to be widely spread during Koguryo (B.C .277 - A.D. 668) and Koryo (918-1392). The oldest record on the fan is a story that Kyonhwon the King of Later Paekje presented a peacock-type fan to Wanggon, the founder father of Koryo written in the Samguksagi (Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms) and the relic is in the mural tomb of Koguryo in Anak, South Hwanghae Province. The Korean fans were popular in China, Mongolia, Japan and many other countries for their beauty and exquisiteness.
The founder of Ming in China was so fond of the Korean fan, especially folding fan that he instructed to make in China too and named it as a Koryo fan. The fan is associated with the spirit of unity of the Korean nation, the spirit that the nation may prosper only when they are united just as a fan can make strong wind when the paper is plastered firm on the bamboo ribs.
