[Living Tradition] Burning bad luck


Jeongwol Daeboreum, or the first full moon of the year, falls on Feb. 19 and the Jeonju National Museum will set up a large daljip, or “moon house,” as part of its Jeongwol Daeboreum tradition. Visitors will be able to gather around the daljip and set it on fire to ward off all the bad luck that may come in the new year. [NATIONAL JEONJU MUSEUM]
