In celebration of Korea’s biggest holiday, the Lunar New Year, Seoul City has prepared an event using the Korean traditional folk game, Yut-nori, so that all citizens can approach and enjoy Jeongdong’s historical and cultural resources.
Through this event called ‘Let’s Have Fun in the Roads of the Korean Empire’, participants will be given the opportunity not only to enjoy traditional folk games along with their family in the Lunar New Year’s Day, but also to learn about Jeongdong’s historical and cultural resources.
To participate in this event, you only have to sign up for the Yut-nori Team after participating in the Jeongdong History Stamp Tour held from February 1 to 13, 2018.
This Stamp Tour not only has historical meaning, but also will take participants to four of not well known places (Jungmyeongjeon Hall, Appenzeller Noble Memorial Museum, Salvation Army History Museum, and the Community Chest of Korea).
A Yut-nori set will be given to 100 applicants among those who participate in Jeongdong’s History Stamp Tour (‘Let’s Have Fun in the Roads of the Korean Empire’) on a first-come-first-served basis, so that they can play Yut-nori with family and friends in the Lunar New Year’s Day.
