Daeboreum 대보름 – The Great Full Moon Holiday in Korea

Koreabridge - Tue, 2022-08-02 09:44

Daeboreum (대보름 in Hangul) translates to “The Great Moon” or “The Great Full Moon” in English. As the name entails, it is a celebration dedicated to the full moon in Korea.

Specifically, 대보름 (daeboreum) is a Korean holiday that celebrates the very first full moon of the new year under the lunar calendar. Daeboreum is the Korean version of China’s First Full Moon Festival.

When is Daeboreum?

Daeboreum is celebrated on the 15th day of the lunar new year each year. It usually takes place in February, but the specific date each year changes accordingly to the start of the lunar new year.

For example, in 2021, it was celebrated on February 26. In 2022, it was celebrated on February 15, and in 2023 it is celebrated on February 5. Sometimes you may hear the celebration be referred to as “The Great Fifteenth” as well.

How is Daeboreum celebrated?

Traditionally in the Korean culture, many customs and traditions are done to celebrate Daeboreum.

A long time ago, farmers would burn the dry grass you can find on the ridges between rice fields the night before 대보름 (daeboreum). This custom came to fruition as an act to get rid of insects and mice which may otherwise damage crops in the year to come.

달집 (daljip)

Today this custom no longer seems to take place. However, setting something on fire has remained a symbolic aspect of the Daeboreum holiday, commonly in the form of bonfires. These bonfires are called 달집 (daljip).

Specifically, the tradition of lighting a bonfire on fire is called 달집태우기 (daljiptaeugi). This is one of the central ways in which Daeboreum is celebrated by the crowds. These bonfires are built in a triangular shape, with the intention being to build a “house” of sorts for the moon.

After all, the literal translation of 달집 is “moon house” or “house of the moon”. There’s even a small door set on the east side of the bonfire!

지신밟기 (jisinbalgi)

The bonfire is set to burn once the moon rises. As it burns, a ritual going by the name 지신밟기 (jisinbalgi) is done around the bonfire, with people stomping their feet on the ground. Through this ritual, people believed its purpose is to scare away any possible evil spirits and bring luck.

쥐불놀이 (jwibulnori)

For children, one of the most fun ways to celebrate the holiday is with the traditional game, 쥐불놀이 (jwibulnori).

In jwibulnori, charcoal fires are set inside tin cans the night before Daeboreum. They’re attached to strings, which are then flung around. This custom, too, is believed to aid in getting a great crop that year and gives kids the rare opportunity to sort of play with fire.

달맞이 (dalmaji)

And, of course, because Koreans love to hike, hiking is also a popular activity on Daeboreum. It even has its own name, 달맞이 (dalmaji). In order to see the first full moon of the year rise, Koreans will hike up mountains – or other high places – for the best view.

For example, in Busan’s Haeundae neighborhood, you can find a place called Dalmaji-gil, which is a piece of road incredibly popular as a full moon viewing spot.

Other celebrations

Lighting up lanterns has also been documented to have been a part of Daeboreum celebrations since the times of the Joseon Dynasty already.

Overall, many of the customs and traditions for this holiday revolve around the wish of getting an excellent harvest at the end of the farming season. Modern Koreans have remained excited about celebrating these customs even when though the country is no longer as agricultural as it once was.

There’s also a festival dedicated to Daeboreum hosted on Jeju Island each year, as well as a Fire Festival held in Busan.

Jeongwol Daeboreum Fire Festival in Busan

Jeongwol Daeboreum (정월 대보름) refers to the festival that takes place on Daeboreum and celebrates it. During it, a lot of traditional customs are executed as people wish for a flourishing year. Due to the fire aspect, the government actually forbade the celebrations for some time during the 1970s.

However, the festival celebrations during Jeongwol Daeboreum remained so popular among Koreans that in the late 1990s, it was reinstated. Today it is celebrated in numerous locations around Korea, with Busan being one notable location.

In general, if you are in Busan or want to head that way for Jeongwol Daeboreum celebrations, the best activities can be found at Haeundae Beach, Gwanganli Beach, Songdo Beach, and Baekunpo Sports Park.

All of them will set a daljip ablaze at the appropriate time, as well as offer other fun things to do, like flying kites or tug of war. There will also be traditional performances to marvel at. And, at Baekunpo Sports Park, you can even see the jisinbalgi ritual in action!

Which are the foods eaten during Daeboreum?

Just like many other holidays in Korea, big or small, there are specific foods people are accustomed to eating on the day. In the case of 대보름 (daeboreum), the following foods are especially popular to eat.

오곡밥 (ogokbap), five-grain rice

First thing on the morning of Daeboreum, people eat this five-grain rice dish, which consists of rice, millet, and Indian millet, as well as black beans and red beans. This food is commonly served together with dried herbs. Some Koreans may also eat it together with eggplants and squash.

부럼 (bureom), assorted nuts

Also eaten in the morning, this is more of a snack rather than a full meal. Koreans crack nuts of different types to eat on 대보름 morning such as chestnuts, peanuts, ginkgo nuts, pine nuts, and walnuts. This is perhaps the most popular Korean food to consume on Daeboreum.

귀밝이술 (gwibalgisul)

While munching on those assorted nuts, Koreans will drink 귀밝이술 (gwibalgisul), which literally translates as “ear clearing wine” or “ear sharpening wine.” It was thought in the past that this wine would improve one’s hearing and also keep ear aches away. Also, it is believed that all year round, you’ll only hear good news if you drink this.

How true that turned out to be, we’re not sure, but the custom still remains in existence today.

인절미 (injeolmi)

These delicious rice cakes are made from steaming glutinous rice. The rice is steamed and then beaten until it’s reached a sticky consistency. It’s then cut into small square-shaped pieces, which are covered in bean flour before serving.

약식 (yaksik)

Finally, another special dish typically eaten on the holiday is yaksik, made with glutinous rice, as well as chestnuts, honey, pine nuts, sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil. It can be served in a bowl, in a form similar to cake, or in smaller bite-size pieces.

When it comes to talking to yourself, there are certain forms you'll want to use and other forms you'll want to avoid. These are also a part of Politeness Levels, but it's not as simple as just using casual speech out loud. This lesson will cover a few specific common forms that are used when talking to yourself.

Remember that YouTube channel Members can watch this entire series - all 24 episodes - right now. For everyone else, I'll upload one new episode every week until it's complete.

Seokgolsa Temple – 석골사 (Miryang, Gyeongsangnam-do)

Koreabridge - Sun, 2022-07-31 23:36
The Seokgol-pokpo Waterfall at Seokgolsa Temple in Miryang, Gyeongsangnam-do. Temple History

Seokgolsa Temple is located in a long valley west of Mt. Unmunsan (1,188 m) in northeastern Miryang, Gyeongsangnam-do. It’s believed that Seokgolsa Temple was first founded by the monk Beheo-seonsa in 560 A.D. It was later re-established in 773 A.D. by the monk Beopjo. Throughout the years, Seokgolsa Temple has gone by a few different names including Nojeonsa Temple, Seokdongsa Temple, and Seokgulsa Temple. In fact, it’s believed that the temple was originally called Seokgulsa Temple, or “Stone Cave Temple” in English; however, because of the local dialect, and the way that this was pronounced, it changed to Seokgolsa Temple over time.

Seokgolsa Temple was also a base for the Righteous Army that actively defended the nation against the Japanese during the Imjin War (1592-1598). The temple would be rebuilt and expanded in 1753 by the monk Hamhwa. Tragically, the temple was completely destroyed in 1950 during the Korean War (1950-1953). The temple would be restored and rebuilt starting in the 1980’s. The Samseong-gak Hall was built in 1989, the Geukrak-jeon Hall was rebuilt in 1999, and the monks’ dorms were completed in 2003.

Temple Myth

There’s a myth about Seokgolsa Temple about the head monk and his student. This student was the first in line to succeed the head monk after his passing. And because this novice monk had a noble personality that allowed him to better understand the virtues of the Buddha’s teachings, the head monk grew jealous of the novice monk. So the head monk turned the novice monk into a Gangcheoli – 강철이, which means “poisonous dragon” in English.

Wherever the Gangcheoli passed, all of the crops would wither and die. The novice monk/Gangcheoli was sad, but he still continued to study the Buddha’s teachings. After a year of being a Gangcheoli, the novice monk asked Okhwang-sangje – 옥황상제 (The Great Jade Emperor) to allow him to enter heaven, but the Great Jade Emperor denied the monk’s request. Furious, the Gangcheoli/novice monk aggressively moved throughout the air with its body causing thunder and hail. This killed all the crops on the ground, once more. And now, every year, when the barley is about to be harvested, the Gangcheoli destroys all the crops. Not the happiest of endings.

Temple Layout

You first make your way up a long valley next to the Wonseo-cheon Stream, until you eventually arrive at the cascading Seokgol-pokpo Waterfall. The waterfall slides to the side and collects in a stony pool of water at its base. The waterfall is especially beautiful just after a good rainfall, and you’re able to get close to the base of the falls in the gorge below.

Continuing on past this beautiful waterfall, you’ll pass over a stone bridge, and climb a stone set of stairs, to gain entry to the compact temple courtyard. Straight ahead of you is the newly built Geukrak-jeon Hall. And out in front of it are two book-ending seokdeung (stone lanterns). Surrounding the exterior walls are a collection of Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life). Stepping inside the main hall, you’ll find a main altar triad centred by Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise). This central image is joined on either side by Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) and Daesaeji-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom and Power for Amita-bul). To the right of the main altar is a shrine dedicated to a black haired image of Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). And to the left of the main altar is a beautiful Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

To the right of the Geukrak-jeon Hall are the monks’ dorms, and to the left of the main hall is the Samseong-gak Hall, which actually identifies itself with two signboards above the dual entryways as a Sanshin-gak Hall and a Chilseong-gak Hall. However, stepping inside this shaman shrine hall, you’ll in fact notice three murals hanging on the main altar. Rather oddly, the largest image of the three is dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars), which hangs to the far right. This larger image is joined to the left by two smaller images dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) and Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit).

How To Get There

To get to Seokgolsa Temple, you’ll first need to get to the Miryang Intercity Bus Terminal. From the Miryang Intercity Bus Terminal, you’ll need to catch the “Eoleum-gol – 얼음골” bus. The bus ride will last 29 stops, or 34 minutes. You’ll then need to get off at the “Wonseo – 원서” stop. From where the bus drops you off, you’ll then need to head north and cross over the “Miryangdae-ro -밀양대로” road. After crossing this road, hike up the valley that houses Seokgolsa Temple for 1.6 km, or 30 minutes.

Or you can simply take a taxi from the Miryang Intercity Bus Terminal. The taxi ride will take 25 minutes, over 27 km, and it’ll cost you 35,000 won (one way).

Overall Rating: 7/10

The rather obvious highlight to Seokgolsa Temple is the beautiful Seokgol-pokpo Waterfall at the entry of the temple grounds. It’s a beautiful, tall waterfall that you can get very close to for some amazing pictures. In addition to all of the natural beauty at Seokgolsa Temple, which also includes the towering Mt. Unmusan off in the distance, is the newer artwork in and around the temple shrine halls. While a bit more difficult to get to, it’s definitely worth a visit to the countryside in Miryang.

The Seokgol-pokpo Waterfall at the entry of Seokgolsa Temple. Some of the cascading water. And one more look. The bridge that spans the Wonseo-cheon Stream. The Geukrak-jeon Hall at Seokgolsa Temple. One of the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life) that adorns the exterior walls of the main hall. The main altar inside the Geukrak-jeon Hall. The Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) side altar. And the Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural) inside the Geukrak-jeon Hall. The Samseong-gak Hall at Seokgolsa Temple. And the shaman paintings inside. The view from the Samseong-gak Hall. And the Brahma Bell at the temple. —

‘직역하지 마’ (Don’t Translate Literally) MV | Music by C.SWAG (씨스웩)

Koreabridge - Fri, 2022-07-29 12:01

One thing I often tell learners is to avoid using any machine translation when learning Korean. This isn't because machine translation is useless (it's useful), but because it can often give incorrect answers that the learner may not be able to understand are incorrect. Using machine translation can also help form bad habits when studying, and can become a crutch that learners rely on - instead of practicing by making their own sentences. Dictionaries are an absolutely necessary tool for learning, but it's important to think when writing sentences so that you can avoid some of the pitfalls that come with just using a translator or translating things directly.

I wanted to make a song about avoiding not only translating things directly, but also relying too much on literal translations (machine translation, etc.) when trying to learn Korean. Simply using what you know in the best way possible, and then learning and practicing, will be far more effective than keeping yourself trapped in a cage of translating everything literally.

What started out as a joke between friends is now officially a fully produced song and music video. Although it's my first song, hopefully it won't be my last. You can watch it here, and there are links in the video description to where you can download the song.

I've also included the full lyrics below the video.

직역하지 마, 어색하잖아
고민하지 마, 어렵지 않아
네 실력에 맞게 쉽게 한번 풀어봐.

나는 한국어 초보자, 하지만 모르는 게 너무 많아
빨리 말하고 싶지만, 맞는 표현이 생각 안 나
그러다 좋은 방법 하나 찾았어, 한국어 몰라도 말할 수 있어
그런데 번역기로 만든 문장이, 알고 보니 말도 안 되는 거였어

직역하지 마, 어색하잖아
사전 열어보기 전에 잘 생각해 봐
고민하지 마, 어렵지 않아
네 실력에 맞게 쉽게 한번 풀어봐!

직역하지 마, 어색하잖아
고민하지 마, 어렵지 않아
네 실력에 맞게 쉽게 한번 풀어봐!

습관처럼 나오는 번역기 찾기
역시 쉽지 않지 필요하긴 하지만
의존하지 말기, 언어는 말하기
바퀴처럼 구글 파파고 돌리기 stop please
같이 연습해 볼까
문법 발음 서툴러도 괜찮아
연습만이 살길 알잖아
너도 할 수 있어 말해봐 자신 있게!

직역하지 마, 어색하잖아
사전 열어보기 전에 잘 생각해 봐
고민하지 마, 어렵지 않아
네 실력에 맞게 쉽게 한번 풀어봐!

직역하지 마, 어색하잖아
고민하지 마, 어렵지 않아
네 실력에 맞게 쉽게 한번 풀어봐!
