The Noble(Yangban) Surfer
The Nobleman shows leeway but brags his little knowledge and learning. He is there to be mocked by the public as the archetype of the silly ruling class.
Padotagi means ‘riding waves’ in Korean. This series was published to revive Korean traditional dance, ‘Talchum’. Unfortunately Talchum is losing its original form and tradition because of lack of young apprentices.
