"Hyo" is the duty of children toward their parents.
It also refers to the attitude and respect people show, not only to their own parents, but to older people in general.
What does "hyo" look like in the eyes of foreigners?
Through the small gestures of decorum and respect in Korean culture, we look at the true meaning of "hyo."
"Hyo" seems like a difficult concept, but young foreign students learn about "hyo" and create a UCC on their findings. They visit a "seodang" where they learn about Korean manners, and have a meal in a household where 3 generations live together to see how "hyo" is incorporated into the everyday life. Saying a sincere greeting or offering delicious food and good things to elders first are some of the simple practices of "hyo."
"Hyo" is something everybody can do, and it is the basic way of life of Koreans. We learn about the true meaning of "hyo" through simple and comprehensible examples.
