This gentleman sells bows, headbands, and barrettes in Namdaemun. At
first, I just wanted his picture because his method of advertising includes wearing his goods. However, his response to me is a perfect example of a photographer’s struggle. I asked kindly, and in Hangul, if I could take his picture. He grunted, glared, and ate his noodles. I took his picture anyway, because if you are a grown man wearing a headband and a crown then you just have to deal with it.
