Bad News - Good News!

We just came back from the beach and heard that the government announced on the news last night that all Daeboreum Festivals nationwide be cancelled due to the Avian Flu and Foot and Mouth Disease. The villagers are not allowed to go ahead with the festival. I am looking for the relevant articles and will post it on the event later. I have found one article so far although it doesn't mention the festival as such.

We will get some of the logs etc and make our own fire. If you want to BBQ we have lamb and steak with salad packages. Okpo is one of the places in Korea with the most foreign restaurants and bars. It's only about 10 minutes from the beach by taxi if you prefer it a bit more upbeat. We will still go ahead with all the activities. Will be fun and we hope to still see you here on Wahyeon Beach.

If you want to cancel because of the cancelled festival, we will understand completely. Sure you will still have a great weekend if you decide to still come. All the other activities etc will still go ahead as planned. Just the cultural festival will not happen with the fire, dancing etc

I took these photos at the beach before posting the news. Everything was coming along well for the festival, but they stopped all work on the festival now.

We are sure you will still have an amazing time. We will be here to help if you need to get to activities etc.

This is not a protest LOL. Spring is around the corner and people have been celebrating the start of spring this way for centuries.

This is a unique opportunity for a few lucky people to join this fun cultural experience with all the villagers right here on Wahyeon Beach, Geoje Island. This year the festival falls on Saturday, so it's an excellent chance to experience this special event.

It was so much fun last year. Come tie your wishes to the huge bon fire, drink some makoli, join in the Korean dancing and share a laugh with the local village people. This is a unique experience to really get away from the city and experience the slower life of the people who live here.

It is a very cheap trip and you can also combine a BBQ, activities like Oedo Botanical Island, ATVs, fishing, fireworks etc.
