First time spending Chuseok in South Korea

Chuseok is one of the biggest holidays in South Korea. This is the time where families gather together to give their thanks to their ancestors for the autumn harvest. It is also somehow called the Korean Thanksgiving.

Chuseok is considered one of the most important holidays in South Korea which holds a big part of their culture.

How I spent Chuseok?

Our university made Chuseok-related events for us International Students
During the Chuseok holiday, we had almost a week break from our Korean classes. So because of that, some of my fellow GKS scholars decided to go around Busan and visit different tourist spots.

To summarize what happened this Chuseok and holidays, I got to visit these places again

For the first time, I was able to visit

🏖️ Songdo Beach
🏛️ Haedong Yonggungsa Temple

Bonus before the short break ends, I was also able to go to a cupsleeve event for Jeonghan’s birthday.
