Personal seal, Dojang (도장)
There are few shops in Insadong where you can
make a personal seal in hangul (Korean characters) or
hanja (Chinese characters).
Btw. Personal seals are called Dojang (도장) in Korean language.
Myung Sin Dang Pilbang (명신당필방) in the second photo
can make a personal seal for you in just 30 minutes :)
I’m not sure about the price though.
I think these personalized name seals
can be a nice souvenir to friends yah :)
I’ll definitely like it if I got a present like this :p
Btw. Myung Sin Dang is actually a brush store that sells brushes,
Chinese ink, ink stones, engraving stones, paper and books.
