In today's society that values individuality and creativity, handwriting is not just handwriting, but is a fashion. For example, when CUK students prepare for presentations, they are agonizing over which fonts they have to use because the atmosphere of the presentation could be completely changed depending on the style of writing. Among them, there is a hand-written style that clearly reveals individuality: Calligraphy. Calligraphy means “hand-writing text”. However, it is not the process of writing “original meaning of the word”, but rather "flexible and dynamic lines", and "unique blotting" of the letter itself in the formative sense.
