On Tuesday, February 19th, Funday Korea Networks has invited over 36 foreign nationals to the
"Jeongwol Daeboreum" (Full Moon Festival) in Namsangol Hanok Village and attended the beautiful
celebration, marking the first full moon this year, according to the Lunar Calendar.


Jeongwon Daeboreoum symbolizes the end of the long winter and the arrival of Spring.
One of the main highlights of this festival was the ritual of burning rice straw and other wastes from
the previous year in a huge bonfire while dancing around it.
This is supposed to drive out the bad spirits and ensure a great harvest for the next year. 


Our foreign visitors had a chance to experience this unique cultural phenomenon while
watching performances, such as Bukcheong Korean Lion Dance Drama and the "Moon house" burning.
