3 Outdoor Things to Do Before Winter in Korea (Daegu)

3 Outdoor Things to Do Before Winter
The First Day of Winte “Ip Dong” is A Day Ahead!

In the morning recently, you already see some people wearing winter coats. It’s only the beginning of November but in Korea the official beginning of winter is only a day ahead. “Ip Dong 입동” which literally means the onset of winter refers to the 19th out of 24 seasonal divisions used by Korean ancestors and even people today. These divisions are based on location of sun in the sky so it is popularly used to accurately estimate the change of season and weather in Korea.
When Ip Dong comes, animals starts to dig into ground, leaves fall and grass dry. This is the most popular time for Koreans to make kimchi for the next year before cabbages are out of production.
Before freezing cold winds sweeps through Korea, let’s have our 3 outdoor activities done for this fall!
