Korean Traditional Games


Ilia State University will organize Korean Week with the support of partner Korean universities, associations and diplomatic missions, which will take place on May 14-20, 2022, to mark the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Korea and Georgia.

We are inviting you to participate in the Korean Traditional Games during the Korean Week on May 18, at 15:30.

You will be able to familiarize with the instructions and take part in such games as: Hanbok, Seoye (calligraphy), Tuho, Jegichagi, Ddakji.

The event will be held in the physical space and you can attend it by pre-registration (the event will be attended by the first 50 registered participants).

To register, follow the link:


Hanbok is the traditional Korean attire that can be traced back to the Three Kingdoms of Korea period (1st century BC - 7th century AD). However, present day Hanbok is patterned after the hanbok worn in the Joseon dynasty and is often worn on traditional holidays or official events.


Korean calligraphy, also known as Seoye, is the Korean tradition of artistic writing. This art form derived from Chinese calligraphy was later introduced to Korea and Japan and reflects the tradition of writing on paper in Hanja (Chinese characters) and Hangul, the native Korean alphabet.


Ddakji, a traditional Korean toy, is made from folded pieces of paper. It can be played easily; the goal is to flip the opponent's Ddakji placed on the floor by throwing yours.


Tuho was mostly played by royal families or Yanban (nobles of the Joseon period) families in the backyard of the house. The goal is to throw arrows into the pot from a distance. Players are divided into two teams. The team that throws the most arrows in the pot wins.

Time: May 18, 15:30 - 16:30

Location: The first 50 registered participants will receive a location address via text message.
