Comfort and hope to all with the new light! The 21st Pohang Homigot Korean National Sunrise Festival

Pohang, Gyeongbuk, Korea

On the first day of the new year, the 'Homi Cape Korean People's Celebration' is held at Pomi Homigot Square.
Homigot Sunrise, a new hope for all
Homi Cape, located in Nam-gu, Pohang, is the tail of the Korean peninsula, the Korean peninsula. Speaking of tails often comes to mind negative meanings such as end and back. Like the crowned crown, it can be used to mean incompleteness such as failure or abandonment.

But tails are very important to animals. Especially for predators of carnivores, the tail is directly linked to survival. When hunting, the tail turns and balances. The tiger runs with the power of the tail, and conducts the flock with the tail. This is why the tiger tail is regarded as a symbol of national fortune and national security. Homigot New Year's first sunrise, which will be comforting and hopeful for everyone, is more meaningful.

The sunrise spot of Pohang is by far the Homigot Sunrise Square. The New Millennium Memorial Hall, the Korea Tourism Luxury Museum, and the Yeon Orang Seon Statue were built around the square.

Guryongpo, about 10 km from Cape Homi, is home to Guamegi. When talking about Pohang's winter, Guamegi does not fall with the sunrise.

It's a bit weird to eat lettuce and seaweed, and it's a bit grotesque to eat with chopped guamegi and chopped green onions. The texture is chewy and chewy. If you are a liquor lover, you can have a cup of Pohang's representative makgeolli, “Young-ilman Friends,” made with Pohang rice and rice cakes.
