Jeju Welcomes SpringTamna-guk Ip-chun Gut (Spring Welcoming Ritual of Tamna), Chilmeoridang Yeongdeunggut

Tamna-guk Ip-chun Gut (shamanistic ritual) is a traditional ceremony where people would pray for a good harvest and peace by drawing a wooden cow. This is the best festival in Jeju! Running from Feb. 2 to Feb. 4, the Georigut, Yeolimgut, and Inpchungut (Spring Welcoming Ritual) unfold in order and experiences such as writing chuncheop (spring charm) and making sotdae or traditional mask, playing folk games, and sharing local food are also available in Jeju Mok Government Office and throughout Jeju. Yeongdeunggut is a special belief in the goddess of the winds that's been passed down for generations. Jeju residents pray for a rich harvest and peace to the goddess Grandmother Yeondeung who is said to sow seeds everywhere on Jeju Island and the sea for 15 days from the first day of February on the lunar calendar. Jeju Chilmeoridang Yeongdeunggut is listed as one of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage properties. The Yeongdeung Welcome Rite this year will be held on Feb. 24 and the Yeongdeung Farewell Rite on March 8. A special time to welcome the season of spring is coming.

Spring into ActionMaehwa Plum Festival

A bud protrudes from a branch. Such small but strong power might be the secret of the often complimented plum blossom. News of plum blossoms arrive from Seogwipo, where spring’s first warm breezes blow and herald the renewal of life from winter’s grasp. Plum blossoms bloom along the paths of urban parks and eco parks. Preparations began in early February for the Maehwa Festival where visitors enjoy its treasure hunt, arts and crafts programs, and abundant food experience. Also, lots of places provide discounted admission fees. Flowering times vary depending on the location, but guests hiking here are consistently enchanted with each site’s unique benefit. Legend has it that when you walk with soft steps, intoxicated by the sunlight and scent of flowers, the year ahead will be wonderful.

Check Out the Stars and ConstellationsHappiness Star Canopus

In the still cold sky, there is a star that heads toward the south following Sirius below the Orion constellation and glimmers near the horizon. It’s Canopus. Although it can be often seen in the southern hemisphere, it is known to be a lucky star that's in charge of people's fortunes, good health, and long life in Korea. As a constellation in the winter season, it is seen at dawn in November and can be observed in the evening in February and early March. You can see it from a high mountain in the southern sea or Jeju, and Seogwipo is the optimal observation post with Seogwipo Astronomical Science and Culture Center being Korea’s only observatory able to see Canopus. The opportunity to see this star together and be happy for a long time is open to you now.
