Traditional Korean marriage customs

You may have seen the man getting down on one knee to propose to the bride if you’ve seen any K-dramas. However, this is n’t typical at Korean weddings. Instead, in a ritual known as the paebaek, the partners may bow to one another and their families before toasting each other and drinking unique wine along. Confucius is the foundation of the meeting, which emphasizes respecting one’s mothers greatly. The couple will then provide their parents with a variety of foods and beverages, typically dates ( jjubes ) for the daughters and chestnuts ( maekju).

Before the meeting starts, the groom’s community will also present the couple with bright packets filled with cash presents. This is a tried-and-true method of providing financial support for the newlyweds, and it also serves as an act of betrothal gifts ( hahm ). Following their service, the lovers can exchange these hahm presents in a space where they can interact with one another.

Following the wedding ceremony, the newlyweds did share jungian jong, a unique wine made by the bride’s mother and served in gourd trees. The pair will then take two sips of the wines as a representation of their marriage pledges.

Last but not least, the visitors may participate in samulnori, a efficiency featuring four tools, including kkwaenggwari and hua and buk. This can be done either after the pyebaek or during the greeting as a way to wish the partners fortune in their new living.
