Sebae at UNIST

by on October 8, 2011

As with all holidays in Korea, Seollal is filled with tradition: traditional foods, traditional games, and traditional activities. One of the special activities at Seollal is performing sebae (세배). Sebae is a deep formal bow of respect that the younger members of the family perform before the oldest members of the family. A well-performed sebae results in a gift of money from the older family members.

Below Prof. Robert Mitchell and his two sons demonstrate Sebae in UNIST.

Very well done.
