Doing whatever it takes to stop the rain


The National Folk Museum holds a traditional ritual yesterday to pray for clear skies, peace and the well-being of the nation. During the folk ceremony, called Gicheongje, museum-goers participated in prayers to the ancient mountain and river gods in the east, west, south and north to stop the deluge by offering drinks and food.
