"Guo Ruoxu, for example, has included a short note about the folding fan in his Tuhua Jian Wen Zhi (Records of Paintings Seen and Heard About, 1074) It states that Korean envoys often brought along Korean folding fans as gifts. They were, Guo also pointed out, of Japanese origin."

The Korean war fan (mubuchae; Hangul: 무부채)
(fans were even used as a weapon - called the iron fan, or tie shan in Chinese, tessen in Japanese; see Korean fighting fan for Korean use).
Others held variations of poisons or were used to conceal other weapons such as throwing blades which could be released in a spread upon snapping the fan open, a technique a few Kook Sool Won (Guksulwon) artists are said to practice.

additionally KSW uses iron fan 扇子 of Chinese wushu or Kung fu and deformed the 52 taiji techniques 太極功夫扇. i had explained the dangerous and the history of fan on other KSW movie, check them.
my god...the dance is mass calisthenics like north korean brightly-colored folding fan....
historically,folding fan(扇子) was invented in japan influenced from china fan,and it was descended to Portugal about 1540,introduced to Italy,then it was arranged to decorate luxuriously in Italy and France,and Catherine de Medicis made it blowing up in the social circles.then the folding fan was settled as noble customs by Marie de Medicis,she was married with Henri IV in 16 century.later it came back to china Shanghai,finally home to japan.

the martial folding fan is originated in china,the techniques is from taiji, taichi(太極拳) or kunfu.japanese iron folding fan in 16c.e.was just used as shield.the demonstration of Kuk Sool Won with dressed fan is very beautiful,but its very danger....even the edge of feathery or flap ribbon can be lost eye,if it touch softly,the pretty fan would changed as weapon in swing around as collision energy.
the one of the reason almost martial arts prohibit to take something that to get off the accident,it should be applied in just a demonstration.Kuk Sool Won is mixed with the techniques which chinese and japanese in hazard...there are big difference between chinese wushu and japanse aikido(合気道) or jyu-jyutus(柔術),
that are as ma'ai;timing and keeping of proper distance(間合い) and zanshin （残心）;posture following attack, deemed to show both physical and mental preparedness.i think the last pause is from wushu,but the grappling is from aikido...then it is generated a great contradiction.if you fix the joint,you should not take something,its danger.
the aim of using folding fan in taichi is to keep body balance.try to take a pencil by either,and get your hand up with balancing on one foot!its very difficult since the equation of human body would be broken down even a little of heft.the same problems are raising up in korean martial arts,for example the demonstration of taekondo is very fun since their dynamic jumping kick etc..
but the floor has not enough soothing mats,then sometimes they tear their Achilles tendon....
why you hold a dreesed north korean folding fan when doing in reverse technique?pls compare the difference.
