The “K-Heritage: Procession of the Joseon Dynasty” video, approximately four minutes long, vividly brings to life “Hwaneohaengryeoldo” (Royal Procession Back to Seoul). This masterpiece, housed at the National Palace Museum, captures King Jeongjo’s journey to Hwaseong to celebrate his mother’s 60th birthday during his reign from 1776 to 1800. 

Showcasing South Korea’s natural wonders, the “K-Nature: Immerse in the Landscapes of Korea” video presents panoramic views of UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes, Gaya Tumuli, and Changdeokgung Palace.

Viewers can also savor the delectable flavors of traditional Korean cuisine and witness the lively movements of traditional dance. The food-themed video highlights the vibrant colors and elegance of Korean dishes, while another video features a virtual human dancer performing against the backdrop of Gyeongbokgung Palace.
