Beautiful Gat by Artisan Jung Choon-mo
For a while, it seems as though gat, or the Korean traditional headwear, would remain forever stuck in history. It enjoyed an unexpected resurgence and gained international fame as ‘Korean Hat’ in the Netflix series <Kingdom>. Unfortunately, there aren’t many artisans left who specialize in gat. The presence of Jung Choon-mo, the No. 4 National Intangible Cultural Heritage as ganniljang (master gat maker), is that much more precious.
