No Chuseok Without Songpyeon

What turkey is to American Thanksgiving, songpyeon is to Chuseok. Also called Hangawi, with the literal meaning of “great middle,” since it falls on Aug. 15 by the lunar calendar and is one of the three most important traditional holidays, Chuseok celebrates the end of the farming season.

Depending on one’s taste, all or some ingredients can be used. This stuffing is then enveloped in kneaded rice skin.
