Hey listeners! Do you want to learn more about Children’s Day in South Korea? Check out this Korean lesson:
Video Culture Class: Korean Holidays - Children’s Day
Thanks for posting. I am not an expert on children’s day, but to give you some differences between Japan and Korea, in Japan they celebrate children’s day for girls on March 3rd, and for boys on May 5th. For girls they celebrate with dolls(it is called hina-matsuri), for boys they celebrate with carp streamers(called koi-nobori). In Korea, children’s day is for both boys and girls and is celebrated on May 5th. It was originally on May 1st, but as it overlapped with Labor’s Day, it was moved to May 5th.
Hope this was of help.
Hello! This was very helpful! I learned that both South Korea and Japan celebrate Children’s Day. But they celebrate the holiday differently. What are some traditions or events for Children’s Day in South Korea? Also, I learned new words!
