Korean Chess Photos

Here are some photographs of a Korean Chess set I bought on ebay in 2006. These are the real deal, octagonal pieces with Korean and Chinese characters carved into them. The pieces are red and green. I got almost two sets. One set was complete, and the other, which came with it, was missing some pieces. These photos show the complete set on a Chinese Chess board I drew on a large mousepad-like pad that used to be my father's. The other pieces can be seen in the containers. My Chinese Chess set is also nearby.
