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.

This is just how I’ve come to experience the weather since living here. Some people love it, some people hate it. Korea’s weather is pretty similar to my hometown of Detroit, except for the humidity. We can get humid days back in Detroit, but every few days, usually a few storms and a cold front will come through and give us relief for a couple of days.

Here, the humidity basically stays until fall so there is no relief.

Fall is beautiful, and winter is pretty similar to back home as well but I think it feels colder since I walk more here. Also the icy sidewalks are like slippery death traps on which I have fallen many times.
