Wedding traditions differ from culture to culture, nation to nation. After the wedding ceremony, friends of the groom take off his socks, tie a rope around the ankles, and start beating soles of his feet with dried yellow corvina. It is done so to make the groom stronger before the first wedding night.
These objects are chestnuts (symbolizing respect) and jujubes ("daechu") or dried red dates (symbolizing diligence).Money gifts to the happy couple in Korea should be in odd numbers. Before the ceremony the ring belonging to a married woman is put into a tub.Koreans believe that they are associated with the positive „yang“ energy.

The first person who is going to find the ring is going to be married next.Still on lovely round values of 100,000 won or more the couple will certainly be ready to make an exception.
