Chuseok (추석), also known as Hangawi (한가위), is the Korean harvest festival, falling on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. A public holiday in Korea, it usually falls quite close to London’s Thames Festival. This year, it’s today, 12th September.
It’s a time when the roads out of Seoul turn into car parks, as people return to their home towns to spend time with their families and pay respects to their ancestors.
To celebrate the occasion, DSP Media, the commercial K-pop company who created FinKL, thus introducing Lee Hyori to the world, have released some cute photos of two of their current girl bands dressed in hanbok. Worth sharing. Images from the DSP Media via the Chosun Ilbo.
Chuseok greetings to one and all.
