OriginEdit

Choe Bu was a Korean official during the Joseon famed for his shipwrecked travels in China from February to July 1488, during the Ming dynasty. His diary became widely printed in Japan and Korea in the 16th century, providing an outsider’s perspective on Chinese culture and customs in the 15th century.

EffectsEdit

The original copy of the observer's accounts, reading the pages aloud in Korean will cause any listeners to feel like they're actually in the places being described. In a way, they might be. Smells, sounds and even sensations can be felt while the reader narrates. The best part? You don't even need to understand it for it to work!
