4-days of 핸드메이드코리아 Handmade Korea Summer 2017 which took place in COEX Hall C - Seoul, S.Korea; 20-23 July 2017 has finally come to an end. This year we're collaborating together with my artist friends: Yeung Draw and Miss Times from Hong Kong, and Roomism from Singapore, which makes our booth name: "IDxHKxSG" (stands for Indonesia x Hong Kong x Singapore).
A year ago, I joined HMK together with Meet Lucia (read this diary), and was very happy to experience that bonding between the locals and overseas artists. Without any doubt, this year I decided to once again take part in this event and it was beyond fantastic! This time, HMK expanded its categories, not only handmade classification which includes drawing, sculpture, illustration, calligraphy, DIY experience class, quilt and sewing; but also goes further to living interior, fashion and beauty, food town and book art. Yes, the hall is BIG and super crowded with people. I witnessed the long queue in front of the hall before the gate was open to public!
In addition, which made me super happy ㅋㅋ, I had the opportunity to meet 이화선 Hwa Seon Lee, a Korean actress + super model + racer + artist. Her unique work is being displayed in a booth where I then visited. She's very beautiful, humble and has many talents! 😍 It's my pleasure to hand a gift from my creation to her. And aha! I received a gift from her too! And I'm gonna mix-craft her work along with mine soon! ;)
Thanks for the delicious dinner, beer and wine, and of course, this precious opportunity that you arranged for us, Ms. Kim Urah 대표님. We really appreciate it! 🤗 감사합니다~
We are from different countries in the world but we all have dreams and share the same smiles. :)
