Hi everyone 😄 Here’s some information about Korean Thanksgiving Day:

Both 추석 (Chuseok) and 한가위 (Hangawi) mean ‘Korean Thanksgiving Day’ but 추석 is more commonly used in Korea. Chuseok is consist of Chinese character, 秋夕, literally meaning ‘the evening of autumn’, while Hangawi is a pure Korean word meaning ‘the great middle of autumn’.

Many Korean people wear hanbok, the traditional Korean clothes, and eat songpyeon, the half-moon-shaped rice cake, on that day. Men play ssireum, the traditional Korean wrestling, and women perform the ganggangsullae dance in the night of Chuseok.

Hi Katherine,

Glad to hear that the vocabulary list was helpful! You will see many situations in Korean dramas where the characters are celebrating Chuseok, so it is a good list to know! 😄

Hi Bridget,

Yes, the Chinese mid-autumn festival and Korean Chuseok have similarities and differences–the Korean Chuseok celebrates ancestors whereas the Chinese mid autumn festival celebrates the moon. But both are celebrated around the same time.

In China we call it mid-autumn festival, some traditions are similar but some are quite different. Thanks a lot for the word list and the video ! I’m so happy to learn more about this festival in South Korea and some related words and expressions.
