Korea’s traditional noblemen knew how to discipline themselves with the hats.” He also said, “The foreign luminaries who had come to the Korean peninsula in 1890s described Korea as the country of hats, and 70% of the world’s hat supply comes from Korea.” The foreign press and celebs who attended the MUST GO IN KOREA event are Geekazine (US), Lecafedegeek (France), Yesky (China), Vietnamplus (Vietnam), My Fat Pocket (Singapore), AVING Russia (Russia), AVING Korea.
