    Thank you very much for sharing these photographs! I was intrigued by the picture showing people washing their faces (and hair?) with warm water and was wondering if there was some kind of symbolism behind this.
    Is the Korean Folk Village an open air museum about Korean traditions?
    I recently saw a beautiful (and very moving) Korean film on Dutch television called Jibeuro (The way home in English). It showed life in a hamlet high up in the mountains, very remote in so many aspects from Seoul.

    Very cool photos. The perspective you chose for “Eating Wheat” mixed with her reaction created a really great shot.

    Hi Justin,

    Hi!
    I am very glade to see photos of my country : )

    Maybe the day was Dano.
    Dano is the festival on the fifth day of May of the lunar clendar.
    Women washed their hair in water boiled with Sweet Flag, believed to make their hair shiny Anciently. And people thought that is talismanic.
    These days it’s just a celebration for Dano.

    You can get more information here.
