"Madang" reinterpreted Korean traditional games " Tuho," " Juldarigi," " Sangmonori," " Neoltwigi," " Geunenori," " Ganggangsullae," " Biseokchigi" and " Sabangchigi" into eight office supplies or interior prop series so that the characteristics of each play can be displayed well. It was designed to allow modern people who spend a lot of time sitting at their desks to naturally recall the forgotten traditional games as they use this series. In addition, the use method and simple design suitable for the sense of the times have been added to make it easier for people to get closer to traditional games.


"It is an interesting idea to use the concept of old and traditional games and turn them into more modern games that are more suitable for today's life. The designer of this product was able to implement this idea correctly and elegantly which is pleasant."

"Cute. The packaging catches my eye."
