Annual Tamnaguk Ipchungut Nori event starts Friday in Jeju City

Tomorrow the annual Tamnaguk Ipchungut Nori event will begin in Jeju City. This ceremony marks the traditional start of spring with a shamanistic ritual. It’s colorful, musical, and full of things to discover. As far as local festivals go, this is a big one!

Fun fact: Tamna is the old name for Jeju Island, before it became part of Korea and was a kingdom unto itself.

Time: Feb. 2 to Feb. 4 at locations around Jeju City, including City Hall, Jeju Mokgwana and Gwandeokjeong Pavilion.
