YÉOL means to carefully preserve the beauty of cultural heritage inherited from antiquity for today and tomorrow. YÉOL is a gathering of people who steadfastly promote the ideals represented in its name,and support the efforts to promote the proper understanding of Korean traditional culture and foster love for her cultural heritage, wherever attention alone is not enough.

Kim Soo-Young and Gio Kisang together they raise the value of traditional crafts and modernise them for everyday use. Brass itself is a symbol of sophistication in traditional Korean culture. Brass kitchenware transcends mere utensils to afford us insight into traditional Korean life.

This film edit by Nils Clauss pays homage to the work of Korean craftsman. The intense heat required to forge his materials are juxtaposed with the harsh Korean winter landscape in which Kim Soo-Young lives and works.
