Chuseok without ‘social distancing’ came on the 10th for the first time in three years. Citizens are enjoying the holidays in various ways, such as visiting their hometown after a long time or spending time to recharge.
“During the period of social distancing, we had a simple turn with our family members, but this time we decided to bring all the other relatives together,” said Kim, in her 30s, from Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do. It’s nice to be able to see your face. Even adults are happy to see them all together.”
Song Mo (28) laughed, saying, “My grandmother was also in her old age this year, so about 20 of her family gathered. It was the last time we met before the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), so it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other face to face.”
On the other hand, they are still concerned about the spread of COVID-19, so they hold small family gatherings or spend time with friends and lovers. Kim (29), who lives in Incheon, said, “Originally, all of my relatives gathered and had their turn, but naturally, due to the corona virus, each of us decided to spend time with our family at home. said
Park (28) said, “I spent time with my family yesterday, and today I am going on a date with my girlfriend in the suburbs of Seoul.
Due to the recent high price situation and typhoon Hinnamno damage, there are cases in which they have no choice but to go back to their hometown. Jeongmo, 31, who runs a cafe with her husband in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, visited her parents’ house in Gyeongju during her holidays, but gave up her homecoming this Chuseok.
Some point out that we should refrain from using words that hurt each other in the guise of a holiday ‘good talk’. Shin Ji-young, a professor of Korean Language and Literature at Korea University, recently talked about three things to avoid for a happy Chuseok on CBS radio’s ‘Kim Hyun-jung’s News Show’, saying, “What are your plans for the future?” “It’s about me,” “Everyone says that you’re doing well,” and so on.
In office workers and employment communities, so-called ‘holiday nagging menu boards’ appear, and there are also funny scenes where you can get a glimpse of their pain and suffering.
