The Korea Meteorological Administration has announced that autumn foliage will make its appearance 1~5 days later than it has in previous years. The foliage, changing of colors in leaves, normally peaks 2 weeks after the process begins, and its timing differs by region.

This year, the foliage is expected to arrive in early October in the eastern region, mid-October in the central region, and late October in the western region. The changing of colors in leaves on mountains in each region will also resemble the foliage schedule. For instance, Seoraksan Mountain will have its first foliage starting October 2nd and peak foliage starting October 17th; Jirisan Mountain will have its first foliage starting October 10th and peak foliage starting October 18th; and Naejangsan Mountain will have its first foliage starting October 25th and peak foliage starting November 6th.

* First foliage = 20% of a given area’s foliage has changed colors
* Peak foliage = 80% or more of a given area’s foliage has changed colors
