Happy Chuseok from Jung II-woo and Moon Chae-won

There is a tradition of many artists from K-dramas to do photo shoots for Chuseok.

Chuseok (추석) is a harvest festival and a three-day holiday in Korea celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar on the full moon. Like many other harvest festivals around the world, it is held around the autumn equinox, at the very end of summer or in early autumn.

As a celebration of the good harvest, Koreans visit their ancestral hometowns and share a feast of Korean traditional food such as songpyeon (송편) and rice wines such as sindoju and dongdongju.  In contemporary South Korea, on Chuseok,  people travel from large cities to their hometowns to pay respect to the spirits of their ancestors.  People perform ancestral worship rituals early in the morning. Then, they visit the tombs of their immediate ancestors to clean them. They also offer food, drink, and crops to their ancestors.  In a way it is similar to the Mexican “The Day of the Dead” and the catholic “All Souls Day.”

These photos are really sweet.  Here Jung II-woo reminds me of the High Kick times so much.  He has such a baby face…and dressed in pink!  So tender!  Enjoy!  Cr. On Photos.
