In Korea, we don’t celebrate New Year’s (Seollal also known as 설날) like the western counterpart of the world does.
I’ve noticed that not many people seem to know much about how Koreans welcome in the new year, so I thought it would be a good way to share our culture with the world – through food.
Before we go on, however, a quick tidbit for you!
The Korean New Year marks the first day of the Korean lunar calendar. It is undoubtedly one of Korea’s most significant holidays, and it spans for a period of 2-3 days of eating, visiting relatives and reuniting with loved ones.
