As the Lunar New Year, or Seollal as it is known in Korean, approaches, we have delved into the archives of The Jeju Weekly to give you a comprehensive list of articles about the food, festivities, and traditions that take place during this time of the year.
This year, the Seollal period will run from Friday, Jan. 27 until Monday, Jan. 30th, giving many people in Korea a four day weekend.
New Year's day itself will fall on Saturday, Jan. 28, so it is probably best to prepare for some of your favourite shops and restaurants to be closed on that day (and possible the days around the New Year too).
Fancy trying some Seollal food, but you don't have an invite to a Korean house? Then why not try making it yourself! This article looks at some of the food eaten during Seollal and also provides recipes for a rice drink called Jobssal Gamju and a pheasant soup called Pheasant Memil Kalguksu.
