The Jeonju National Museum hosts the Jageun
Munhwa Festival to celebrate Seollal, Lunar New Year's Day, and Daeboreum, the
day of the first full moon of the year. The museum prepares various cultural
events and seasonal traditional games in order to give visitors an opportunity
to participate in traditional cultural events and customs.
Before the festival, there are diverse Korean folk games like jegichagi (Korean hacky sack), kite-fyling, a top-spinning game, and yutnori. During the Seollal holiday, visitors can enjoy movies, making an official hat of gilt bronze, and sharing ddeokguk (rice-cake soup). Also, a wide range of hands-on programs will be offered like making folk crafts, writing a family motto, and more.
On the Daeboreum (the day of the first full moon of the year), a pungmul band (percussion band) will perform to drive away evil spirits and daljip (brushwood) will be burned as part of the finale.
