Don’t Forget to Catch “Chuseok Specials” During the Long Weekend!

Chuseok, also known as the Korean Thanksgiving Day, is one of the most important holidays of the year! Chuseok is a traditional festive holiday to celebrate the good harvest, which is also called Hangawi (ํ•œ๊ฐ€์œ„). On this traditional day, Koreans visit their hometowns to celebrate with their families and perform Charye (์ฐจ๋ก€) and Seongmyo (์„ฑ๋ฌ˜). Koreans also play traditional games like Yutnori (์œท๋†€์ด), gongginori (๊ณต๊ธฐ) and they fly kites as well! This year, Chuseok falls on Sunday, September 27th with three extra days off, and one thing you should never do during the long weekend is missing Chuseok Special TV programs! No different from last year, there is an extraordinary lineup of Chuseok Specials, so letโ€™s check that out!
