The video of Misuda ceremony experience: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLHzvlZxvrs&feature=player_embedded


It is 3:30pm, Saturday September 8th (2012) and the majority of Misuda participants have already gathered at the ground of Seoul Namsan Traditional Theater of Namsan Hanok Village. The time has passed so fast while chatting and getting to know each other. The event organizers from KTO have announced the program details and we left to the downstairs dressing room.

The dressing room was full of many beautiful Hanbok dresses and hair decorations for girls as well as King traditional dresses for Men. The choice was great enough and everyone chose the dress that caught his/her eye. Oh, and the white socks with “Misuda” logo on it! Thank you so much for keeping our feet warm from the cool floors. It was very kind consideration!

Next – we chose the right size of traditional shoes and went back to the ground where the table was all set for us to craft our own Jegi.

It would seem that making Jegi is very simple! But no, it was even more simple than everybody though ^^ Just 2 papers with printed Korean alphabets on it, a ring-like coin with a hole inside, a pair of scissors and a small string to tight everything up. Few manipulations and here it is, Jegi is ready to be kicked! However, it wasn’t easy to kick it while wearing a long Hanbok dress. I gave up after 2 trials.

After Jegi play we entered into a tea ceremony hall. The tea sets were all prepared and placed next to the pillows where we were supposed to be seated. And even the flowers, the Korean flowers were almost coloring the whole space into a special mood.

Out teacher on tea manners sat in the middle in front of everyone and greeted us with a slow half bow. She taught us how to bow, all the 3 bow types, I simply call them half-bow, “middle”-bow and full-bow, its meaning and the situations when we can use each type of bow.

Next, the helping lady has poured hot water to a special pot of each of us. And the real tea preparation has begun.

Moving around, taking and placing the utensils for the tea should be graceful, confident and slow. We’ve imagined that the guest is sitting in front of us and we were to serve him. The teacup should be held in both hands to show full thoughtfulness, respect and attention to a guest. Slowly proceeding with the tools every one of us has poured hot water into a teapot with green tea leaves in it and closed the cover for it to brew.

By the way, it is said that the tastiest tea comes out from the 2nd and 3rd brewing as it is not bitter and the tea color is clearer. 

One more interesting tip: the teacup has to be warmed before we pour tea into it. We’ve just warmed it with hot water that we’ve used previously for the tea itself.

After the tea was ready and was offered to an imaginary guest, we’ve actually started tasting it by ourselves, also very slowly, sip by sip as one small teacup should be drunk in 3 sips.

When I was just started thinking that the ceremony is over, three beautiful Korean ladies entered the room carrying Korean traditional instruments with them. It was a peak of the event, when we were sitting there, slowly sipping the tea, tasting Korean traditional desserts and listening to beautiful melody of Korean traditional songs. There were just moments of pure calmness and full absorption into the world of tea and beautiful music. The last musical piece that everyone loved the most was a variation of the soundtrack to a recent Korean drama called Isan (이산). I am still looking for it, can’t forget the song.

The event was loved by everyone as people won’t stop making pictures after everything has finished and didn’t really want to leave the place. It was one of the best deep dives into Korean culture that I’ve had a chance to experience till now.

I am very grateful to KTO members to make it such a great time for all for us!
