Seasonal Food・Food for Anniversary in Korea
1.Wedding
Silver line noodles (Gukusu): In Korea, there is a custom of having a meal after the wedding, and usually people eat Gukusu which represents their wish for the couple’s longevity and happiness. These days, instead of eating Gukusu, people eat other foods as well, but the meaning has remained unchanged.

2. Samubok
Samgyetang: Sambok means the hottest period of the year. It changes every year, but it usually falls in between July and August. In order to beat the summer heat and to build up one’s body, people often eat Samgyetang in Korea. It is a typical Korean healthy dish that contains stewed sticky rice, Korean ginseng, chestnuts, garlic, claws, and other ingredients. People not only eat it during this period but throughout the year as well.

3.Chusok
Sonpyon: On this day which is equivalent to the Obon Festival in Korea, people make rice flour from the rice harvested in that year and eat it with beans and sesame.

4.Before taking an exam
Candy (Yoh): There is a custom of giving test-takers candies in Korea. Since candies are sticky, there is a meaning of “stick to the school of your choice!”. It used to be only the candies, but nowadays people give out other sticky foods such as sticky rice cake, chocolate, and so on.
