From hitting milestones to collaborations with Style Seller and Line Friends, 2019 was an incredible year for Inspire Me Korea. We would not have been able to achieve this without Inspire Mes.

With exciting things to look forward to in 2020, this month’s box focuses on Korean New Year and celebration. There are lots of items related to culture and even K-pop fashion waiting for you inside.

Inspire Me Korea Monthly Magazine

This month’s magazine explores the history of Korea’s most celebrated national holiday Seollal. You will learn about interesting traditions such as ritual ceremonies. There is also a list of the best places to watch fireworks to celebrate New Year and a tasty recipe for Sikhye (식혜), a Korean sweet rice drink.

Traditional Bokjori

This bamboo strainer called bokjori (복조리) is part of a Korean New Year tradition and hung up between midnight of 31st December and the dawn of New Year’s Day. The bokjori is believed to prevent bad luck entering the new year and to bring good luck to the family.
