Happy Chuseok!  / 추석 잘 보내세요! 
Come celebrate with us at KORUS Festival starting today!

Chuseok is one of Korea’s three major holidays and is also referred to as Hangawi (한가위). Han means “big” and gawi means “the ides of August/Autumn” (August 15th according to the lunar calendar is when the full harvest moon appears). Hangawi/Chuseok was the day on which Koreans gave thanks to their ancestors for the year’s harvest, and shared their abundance with family and friends.

Hellovenus 헬로비너스 will be headlining the KORUS Festival K-Pop Concert Saturday night.

 

The group name invokes the image of the Roman goddess of love and beauty, Venus, alluding to the group member’s own charms. The last 2 letter of “hello” and the first 2 letters of “Venus” combine to create the word “love”, further establishing their image as goddesses of love.
