     It was my dream for the long time to study Orient art and painting. My friend Elena
     Dmitrova suggested me to visit Hanmaeum Centre. Elena had attended courses of
     master Jung-hee Kang for one year. She showed me some of her works and I was
     impressed by their energy and beauty. Me and my best friend Amalia Giavri (our                                                                                                                                    Hyundai Hotel Gyeongju
