1. Topic: Sotdae

2. Writer: Janka Kovács

3. Short Explanation: I made a Wikipedia page in the Hungarian language about Sotdae, a tall wooden or stone pole with bird figurines on top of it, which is a part of Korean folk belief. Sotdae is often seen in Korea even nowadays and even is Seoul and it looks very interesting so I wanted to introduce it to Hungarian readers. Sotdae is traditionally placed at the entrance of the village and its function is to protect the village from fire, flood, and diseases and also, to bring good harvest and plenty of rain.

1. Topic: Hwatu

2. Writer: Janka Kovács

3. Short Explanation: My topic for the Wikipedia page was the popular Korean card game, Hwatu. This game is the Korean take on the Japanese Hanafuda cards. It's very popular all over Korea and it appears in dramas and movies all the time. It's a very fun game with beautifully painted cards and a kind of confusing point system. I recommend it to everyone!

1. Topic: Mythology 'Habaek'

2. Writer: Janka Kovács

3. Short Explanation: I made a Hungarian Wikipedia page about Habaek, a river god in Korean mythology. His figure became well-known worldwide as the main character of the famous manhwa, Bride of the Water God, which got a drama adaptation in 2017; Bride of Habaek. The original mythological figure appears in myths centering around his oldest daughter, Yuhwa, who is the mother of two important mythological-historical figures: Go Jumong, the founding monarch of the Goguryeo state, and Haeburu, the king of Buyeo.

1. Topic: Kim Sowol

2. Writer: Janka Kovács

3. Short Explanation: I made a Hungarian Wikipedia page about the famous poet Kim Sowol. He is one of the most well-known poets in modern Korean literature. He wrote poems that follow the style and rhythm of Korean folk songs. His most popular poem is Azalea. I also uploaded two versions of the Hungarian translation of this beautiful poem. Korean literature is not widely known in Hungary so I chose this topic in hope of letting more Hungarians know about Korean literature.
