Tea came to Korea from China over 2000 years ago. The Chinese drank tea to cleanse their body after eating oily food. The Japanese drank tea as an herbal remedy and the Koreans drank tea for releasing stress and wisdom.


7 Things About Korea: Festivals

More-so than anything else, Korea is a country obsessed with festivals. You'll find them for most anything - ranging from religious inspired festivals such as Seoul's Lantern Festival (for Buddha's Birthday) to debaucherous borderline orgies such as Boryeong's (in)famous Mud Festival.

 

While it's true that a lot of the Korean social experience seems to revolve around consuming vast quantities of alcohol and making out with your peers, there's also a lot of opportunities to get out and interact with people without the influence of alcohol. A year round calendar of festivals means that, if you're game, you'll rarely have a weekend where you won't have the option to get out of town and soak up a little bit of the local culture.
