A Text Guide to Chuseok Food

Chuseok, also known as Korean Thanksgiving, is one of the biggest and most important holidays in Korea. Family members from near and far come together to celebrate the year's bountiful harvest and give thanks to their ancestors with newly harvested crops and fruits. As a Korean symbol of abundance and richness, there is even a proverb that goes, “I wish all 365 days of the year were like Chuseok.” However, the way modern-day Koreans spend their Chuseok holiday is changing, including the food they prepare. Let's take a closer look at the new customs of Chuseok and Chuseok food.

Chuseok and Hanok from A Non-Korean's Perspective

Simone Carena is an Italian architect and professor who lives in a hanok, a traditional Korean house. From the outside, his house looks like an ordinary, traditional hanok with its carved wooden door and pagoda-style roof. The inside, however, is a modern, loftlike space in an eye-popping shade of bamboo green. This architect moved to Seoul from Italy in 2001 and married to a Korean wife in 2006. Now with three children, they enjoy East and West, tradition and modernity, and even the beauty of Mt. Bukaksan, in the comfort of their own home. Find out about how the Carenas spend the Chuseok holiday in their home, sweet home.
