Request for translation, please!

Raleigh, NC
Post #: 3
When we were in Seoul last year my wife & I had a calligraphy scroll made for our son, with his Korean name written out, "Sejin."

The calligrapher added some writing to the right of the name, which in all the excitement, I forgot to ask for the translation.

Would someone be so kind as to translate the other writing on the scroll?

Thanks so much!


(There are 2 pics, one of the full scroll and a diagonal close-up of the additional writing.)

Hey Ian,

The writing on the side is not Korean. I'm guessing they are Chinese characters...

Yes. They are Chinese characters. Chinese characters were used in ancient Korean as well.
The four characters up to down are shou(means long life), fu(means luck), kang(means health), ning(means peace). The last two characters are probably the signature of the painter.
Hope this helps!
