Why this is a
Masterpiece

The gyoseo (Message of a King) bespeaks Yi Wonik’s nature, saying, "Although he is so slender as if his body could not endure the clothes, he has a commanding position in the government service. Although He is so shy as if his words could not come out of the mouth, he conducts his business dauntlessly."

History of the Object
