On the occasion of 2012 Korea Philatelic Week Exhibition held from August 9 to 13, 2012, South Korea Post has issued 4 fan shaped stamps.
The Special Stamps feature 3 Western korean paintings and 1 Korean painting featuring

- “The Back Alley”, work by Seo Dong Jin, regarded as having played a crucial role in the establishment of the modern watercolor, shows the city as a clean water painting; 

  - “Namhyangjip” (a house facing south), the work by Oh Ji Ho who launched impressionism in a uniquely Korean manner, where the warm spring light fills the canvas; 

- “Tugye” (cockfighting), the work by Lee Joong Seop shows strongly and with an expressionic fight between two cocks; and 

- “Chodong” (early winter), the work by Lee Sang Beom, that shows both the departure from conceptual landscape painting to a more realistic landscape style, as well as the strong lyricism about the country landscape.
