North Korea Travel Guide
A communist land where time stands still, North Korea is one of the world's most bizarre countries. The architecture of Pyongyang, the DMZ at Panmunjeom and a slew of other quirky Kim-centric sights are the reasons to visit. However, there's absolutely no independent tourism - come by group tour or doesnt come at all!.

Chusok
"also known as the Korean Thanksgiving, is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. Chusok means a great day in the middle of August. It occurs during the harvest season. Thus, Korean families take this time to thank their ancestors for providing them with rice and fruits.
The celebration starts on the night before Chusok and ends on the day after the holiday. Thus, many Korean families take three days off from work to get together with family and friends."

"Korean Festival : Daeborum: The First Full Moon Day"
Because on this day the moon is full, it is a day for driving away misfortune and evil. That is why the food that is eaten and the games that are played on this very day have a hidden purpose of expelling misfortune and evil. 'Jongwol' means 'the first of the month' and 'Dae' means 'big' in Korean. And "Borum' means 'round moon' or 'full moon'. Jongwol Taeborum is the first full moon that rises on the first month of every lunar year. In other words, it is the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunar calendar.
