Happy Chuseok weekend
by | September 12, 2008 | 16 Comments

Geez, how fast time flies — I can’t believe it’s been nearly a full year since the previous Chuseok, or Korean Thanksgiving, which is among the biggest holidays of the year.

The actual day falls on Sunday, but the holiday weekend kicks off today, which means lots of traditional Korean foods and desserts (like the customary rice-cake songpyun), special holiday television programming (movies, family-friendly fare), and yes, lots and lots of hanboks. Particularly, stars dressing up to wish people a happy holiday.
