Local Woman Revives Korean Tradition

By  | 

One Panama City woman is working to grant her mother's final wishes to be buried in traditional Korean dress.

The dress has 19 pieces in it and is part of a tradition that dates back over 5,000 years. For Yong-Son Kim, the decision to honor her mother's wish was just as much about respect as it was about learning more about her own culture.

"I had no idea, never even saw this even in Korea where I was living at the time," she says.
