Do you know who’s on the W50,000 bill? The calm-looking portrait is of Sin Saimdang. In the Joseon Dynasty, education for woman was rare, but she learned to read and draw. She was talented in painting, poetry, and calligraphy. Her paintings depicting plants, flowers, butterflies, and grapes are her most famous works. Sin supported her own family and was a great example of a wife and a mother. Her son, Yi I, also appears on the W5,000 bill.
