158 – 인사동 엿 (Insadong Traditional Hard Candy)

November 25, 2010

I’m finally sorting through some of my old recordings, and here is another sample that I recorded along Insadong Street in Jongno Seoul, while filming for the Arirang TV ‘Today’s Blog’ Program.  This is the sound of a street vendor cutting the traditional Korean hard-tack candy called 엿(‘yeot’).  There are a few ways of cutting this snack, but the woman here resorts the age-old method of hitting it with a chisel.  (158 – Traditional Hard Candy)

Recorded 5/26/10, 6:52PM (local time)
