At the age of 77, Master Se-Yong Kim continues to actively create remarkable artworks that have gained international recognition, earning a place in esteemed collections such as those of the Dalai Lama and the late Queen Elizabeth II. This exhibition features over 50 pieces, granting visitors to witness the pinnacle of skill and innovative techniques employed by the master in the realm of Goryeo Celadon.
