Lunar Calendar - Korea

Traditionally,  Asia's lunar calendar was divided into 24 ‘turning points’ (jeolgi -  절기) in accordance with the motion of the Sun – solar terms, each lasting about 15 days. Within each season there were 6 solar terms (divisions) representing the season’s progression. The focal point of each season was the two solstices and two equinoxes.  

These divisions were valuable in assisting people organise their work and their lives. This was especially true for farmers and fishermen. When you look at the attached chart, you can see why traditional-minded farmers and fishers pay attention to them even today.
