Favorite thing: Korea has been producing pottery for just a short time... about 10,000 years! The most famous Korean pottery, called celadon, dates from the Goryeo dynasty (918-1392). Celadon is known for its greenish-blue glaze. In later years, Korean Pottery was so sought after by the Japanese, that Japanese kidnapped whole villages to take to Japan to make the famous Korean ceramics.
Today, you can easily find Korean pottery of all kinds, and you don't have to kidnap a single Korean person to get it! Throughout Seoul, but especially in Insadong, look for Korean tea-sets, vases, kimchi pots, and other items. If you just can't get enough pottery, take a side trip to the Icheon Ceramic Village, located 50 km south of Seoul.
