Korean sign language is the common language of the deaf in Korea. For deaf people who think and communicate in Korean sign language, Korean is a second language, so fast-flowing Korean subtitles or complex reading comprehension are inevitably difficult. Most of the publicity materials are also produced which focus on the blue people, so it is almost inconvenient for some deaf people to get all the information.

Deaf emoticon writer Koo Kyung-seon participated in the emblem design as a talent gift, and the final design was chosen directly by the deaf through a survey conducted by the Korean Deaf Association.

Gukbak plans to apply this emblem to the Quar Code, which provides sign language interpretation videos for the permanent exhibitions ‘Room of Thought’ and ‘Greek Helmet Donated by Sohn Ki-jung’. In addition, related organizations such as the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul Arts Center, and other public organizations are expected to use the ‘Meet the Sign Language’ emblem frequently in promotional materials such as exhibition and performance covers, posters. and booklets.
