KoreaPost Video: “The springtime of my life is always now!”

KoreaPost release a new video on their YouTube channel. The video shows an artist creating professional style calligraphy on an envelope inspired by the 2018 “Post Culture Week” stamps. These stamps, released in October 2018, were meant to promote letter writing. The video shows how far this can be taken.

With the original release came a text, which in part reads: ” The calligrapher has depicted the word 봄 with the images of sprouts and flowers to convey the message that we have got nothing to fear so long as we believe that The Spring of My Life is Now. The calligraphic work instills us with the courage to be brave and the hope that we can change at any given moment.”
