  • Event description
    Daeboreum is the day of the first full moon of the new year according to the lunar calendar and one of Korea’s traditional holidays. With the aim of preserving and developing Korea’s traditions and culture, cultivating local patriotism, and inspiring pride in its citizens, Nam-gu holds the Jeongwol Daeboreum First Full Moon Festival every year. As part of the festival, a daljip, a pile of straw or twigs from trees procured directly from Cheongdo County, along with objects collected from local citizens, is created and burned. This burning of the daljip is a tradition intended to ward off misfortune and bring good luck. A core part of the Jeongwol Daeboreum program, the burning of the daljip creates flames that rise as high as seven meters and has become more than a traditional purification ceremony but a sight to see in itself, with other districts having adopted the practice as well. In addition to this, the festival features various folk games and booths offering visitors many different experiences and foods to try. It is an event welcomed wholeheartedly and enjoyed thoroughly by locals every year.
