Don’t miss our art workshop prepared by Lucie Haškovcová from the City Gallery Prague and Lucie Finková from the Czech-Korean Society.

This time you can draw inspiration from the traditional Korean Fairy tale about two brothers called Heungbu and Nolbu. 

The Story of Heungbu and Nolbu

Heungbu and Nolbu were brothers. The older one, Nolbu, was very greedy but the younger one, Heungbu, was kind and empathetic. One day, Heungbu and Nolbus father died and ordered them to split his fortune in half. However, Nolbu kicked Heungbus family out to have the fortune all to himself. So Heungbu and his family lived in poverty.  

One day, a snake was climbing up the tree in Heungbus house in order to eat a baby bird. Heungbu chased the snake away and fixed the baby birds broken leg. The following autumn, the birds family came back from the South and gave Heungbu a seed as a thank-you present. Heungbu planted the seed in his backyard until it grew into giant plants with hard shells named gourds.

When Heungbu and his family split the gourds in half, they found jewels, money and a new house. In another words, they became very wealthy. The rumor that Heungbu became rich spread throughout the whole town and reached Nolbu. Without hesitation, Nolbu met Heungbu and asked him how he got rich so quickly. Nolbu heard the secret and did the same, except he broke a swallows leg by himself. 

When Nolbu split his gourds, thieves came out and stole all of his possessions. Nolbu and his wife suddenly became poor and asked Heungbu to forgive them and they lived together happily ever after. (Source: Wikipedia)
