ACM: Asia Culture Market


Spellbinding Asia Culture Center (ACC) never stops wondering us with its astounding ideas, events, organizations bybeing a bridge that connects people all together. We have always delighted by seeing people sticking together and spending quality time with their loved ones in ACC. Honestly, we get inspired and reinvigorated by seeing wide smiles on people’sface. Other than that ACC gives amazing opportunities for everyone to showtheir skills and encourages them to make it a well-known business. Recently, Molly and I got a chance to go to Asia Culture Market (ACM) and we got to see lots of young and talented people who were eagerly and enthusiasticallyinto business. So, in the following paragraphs, we will share our warmfeeling about the Market and the most interesting products that got our attention.



First and foremost, ACM is a platform for creating and distributing creative and experimental cultural contests ranging from planning and commercialization through opening, also participating beyond the boundaries of regions and cities. On this day, you would be able to see the novelties created by people and each product had its own deep stories which contributed to increase the value of goods. As you walk through all these products by humming and rummaging all around, you realize that each goods require some time to absorb the hidden and untold meaning of them, once you have done you fall in love with the product. To be honest, I was hooked by the Arts of Jamie_현정, her imagination and her works grabbed all my attention. She draws and writes books, the main theme of her work is related to her mom and family. Although I had a little knowledge in Korean, I could fathom what she wrote in her books, they were utmost sensitive and meaningful.



Moreover, we met people who highly appreciate their culture and tradition and all these aspects gave them a strong desire to launch their business by preventing their culture to grind to a halt. Their business is called Modern Han, an agency specializing in traditional contents, is currently taking the lead of traditional arts’ popularization and globalization through its platform business consisting of more than 150 artists engaged with traditional arts. Furthermore, Modern Han aims to develop into traditional brand representative of Korea so to be able to serve as a steppingstone to a wider, global distribution of Korean Culture. They plan and direct traditional performances and parties, also agent for traditional artists, more importantly they produce and distribute traditional cultural products. On this day Molly and I were able to try Modern Korean Hanbok, these clothes reflect almost identical features of Korean traditional Hanbok, different and bright colors, details and so forth.



Furthermore, there were hundreds of artists that made us to wonder a lot with their passion towards their work. And this very passion made them to be well-known in the ACM. In this event, you cannot help being sort of swamped into stickers with cute drawing on them, scotches reflecting lovely characters, various coloring books, home decors, clothing, bags, tumblers, phone cases, intriguing games for children, laptop pouches, and loads of paintings. All different colors made people joyful and delighted, you could see their happiness by their eyes and their emotions and by treating each other.




Surprisingly, ACM helped people to go back to their childhood and forget all the stressful adulthood life by its outstanding activities. On the one side, you could see a bunch of people sitting and watching cartoons. On another side, your eyes could fall to people who are making little houses from delicious snacks.


I think ACC is kind of magical place that keeps people together even though they are super busy with their daily routine. We hope and believe that ACC proceeds its trend and helps people to break the ice among them and attract them with many interesting programs like ACM. In the same vein, supporting and encouraging talented people to pursue their path and get their ultimate success in the foreseeable future.
