"Horay" Zo Zayong

Sunday November 14th, 2010
Our association of those who venerate "Horay" Dr
Zo Zayong's memory and continue his efforts of
preserving & appreciating Korea's folklore, folk-
arts & spiritual traditions gathered down at
his
tomb, in the southern area of Sogni-san National
Park, on this chilly Sunday.  
The location is here.


After ten years we had collected enough funds for
a standing-stone memorial-monument for him to
be inscribed with a brief recounting of his life and
accomplishments, and we came together to unveil
that
biseok In a traditional ceremony at his tomb,
starting at 10am.   Everything went very well, and
the mood was excellent.


The Korean Folk-Painting Association
한국민화학회
held a short Seminar on his achievements on the
previous Saturday afternoon, and then a dinner
with drinks.   They then led this ceremony,
officiated by Zo's friend Yun Yeol-su.
