Pictures in this book were taken by Kim Yong-Bum, Korea’s famous photographer and director of documentary film, and Yoo Han-Jun, a writer of juvenile stories, wrote explanation. Especially, since Kim Yong-Bum who has traveled the world by car and then made a film of world cultural heritages which was shown for 2 years on KBS, the major channel of Korea TV, has taken all these live and variety pictures, the book is more meaningful. You will find out all of the Korea’s cultural heritages with this valuable book.
