Umbrella Sales in Korea

Monsoon Season in Korea

Monsoon Season in Korea

I always like to say Korea has 5 seasons instead of 4 (technically true). The monsoon season (called 장마 in Korean) always comes with a bang and this year is no exception.

What usually ends up happening is that I will either forget my umbrella at home, at work, or some other random place and end up buying like 4 or 5 umbrellas over the course of the summer. I think we have about 10 umbrellas in our closet right now.

If you’re in Korea or just visiting for the spring or summer, check out some of these places/festivals.

P.S. I know March is finished, but I had already added those into the graphic before the month was finished and this graphic was a bit tedious in research/text, so I just kept them as a reference for next year.

However, the classrooms are a different story. I’m not sure what the schedule is, but the heat randomly comes on in the winter for maybe an hour or two, and then it is cut off. Summer is slightly better because there are fans in the classrooms, but it’s basically the same. The excuse I was given when I asked why it is not turned on often was as above in the comic. I call BS!
