The Yeon Deung Hoe Festival originated in the Silla period more than 1,200 years ago. It has since been passed down through the Goryeo era, the Joseon era, and is still an annual tradition today. This traditional festival is designated as Korea’s National Intangible Cultural Property No. 122. By lighting lanterns at the Yeon Deung Hoe Festival, participants can brighten their own hearts as well as the world.
