Record torrential rains ravaged the central regions of Korea this summer with landslides and flooding‚ killing scores of people and leaving thousands displaced.
While the victims are still recovering‚ the National Folk Museum of Korea held a traditional ritual to pray for clear weather on Wednesday morning.
[Interview : Cheon Jin-gi‚ Director
The National Folk Museum of Korea] "We prepared this event in the hopes that we can convey condolences to citizens‚ and to show Korean traditional culture to museum visitors."
The ritual program was reproduced from the national code book for ceremonies from the Joseon Dynasty.
To start off‚ officials bow deeply four times.
Then‚ they burn incense‚ followed by a rice wine offering.
They recite written prayers‚ pleading to the heavenly god to stop the rain.
The rite is simple‚ as traditionally it was held outdoors in August‚ toward the end of the long monsoon season‚ and had to be finished quickly due to the rain.

And during the Joseon Dynasty‚ which ranged from the 14th to the early 20th century‚ the ritual was held once every two to three years.
Visitors were able to join the ceremony.
[Interview : Lee Seung-hwan‚ Student] "I participated in the ritual‚ hoping that the victims of the heavy rain no longer have a hard time‚ and they can be safe and unharmed."
Foreign tourists also took part in the rare chance to experience Korean traditional folk culture.
[Interview : Joel Zellers‚ Tourist from US] "It's little strange. I don't know if I know what I'm doing. But I see skyscrapers in the background and this sort of ritual seems mismatched. Very traditional old things‚ right next to very new things."
[Interview : Tourist from France] "I think it's very‚ very interesting. And in Korea‚ you know how to keep the traditional believing and the modernism."
Now the ritual only remains a part of Korea's traditional culture‚ but its symbolic meaning is still relevant‚ as modern day humans still experience the power of nature.
