Glad you and your family had a good trip!

It seems to me that this sort of traditional painting could lend itself to the development of a Korean iconography?

(The second potrait in the article does remind me of Buddhist paintings, but I'm not an Asian art expert.)

Excellent observation. It didn't dawned on me how much the portrait of the kisaeng-martyr looked like an icon. The second portrait does look like the ubiquitous paintings of Bodhidharma.
