The Korea Tourism Organization has prepared a special opportunity for international tourists to get a closer look at Jongmyodaeje, one of the nation’s traditional royal events.

Jongmyodaeje was a royal ancestral memorial rite of the Joseon Dynasty. The rite was observed five times a year, in spring, summer, fall, winter, and December. During the Japanese colonization, the rites were prohibited, but were later picked up again in 1969, with just the spring rite returning, taking place on the first Sunday in May.
