Carnations are all over the street on Parent's Day in Korea


Hello, Muse!

Today, it is Parent's Day in Korea on May 8th. 

This is the day to express your gratitude to the parents through give them carnation flowers and gift. It has been one of the important day since 1973. Children's Day, Teacher's Day, Worker's Day and more big day are on May but especially Parent's Day make us sentimentalize over all memory with parents. 

The origin of carnations has two kinds of stories. 

First, long long times ago, there's a beautiful girl who makes "soqunes" box. Her skill was so amazing that was beyond any other's. 
So many people started to be jealous her and finally people ended to kill her.
God Apollo noticed it and felt pity for her. After that, he changed her into a little and red flower and the name was carnation. 

Seconds, through religion legends, when Jesus Christ was going up to the golgotha there's carnation was popped up at the first. 
Therefore red carnation means endless love and humbly respect.

We just took a photoshoot on the street in order to capture one day before Parent's day. 
All around of Korea was carnation flowers. :)
We went to GangNam station street and Express Bus Terminal flower market to show you and make you feel it. :) 
Please enjoy our photos!
