Many South Koreans share a common fear known as ‘electric fan death.’ It’s a belief that leaving an electric fan running overnight can be lethal to the person sleeping directly beneath it. This phenomenon is, in fact, a widespread urban legend in South Korea. While media and press have repeatedly debunked it, confirming that no actual deaths have occurred due to this, the superstition still lingers among many.

DAY 06 : TAKE A TRAIN TO BUSAN

South korea group trip south korea group trip

We will take a morning train to Busan. Once we drop our luggage, we will head to Gamcheon Culture Village.

Gamcheon was born in the 1920s and 1930s, but it was not until the mid-twentieth century that it really took off. To escape the Korean War (1950-1953), many refugees fled to Busan, the only area of the peninsula still under South Korean control. Some of them gathered in Gamcheon and built dozens of makeshift houses.

In the decades that followed, and despite the end of the conflict, the village of Gamcheon remained one of the poorest areas of Busan. In an effort to counter this, the city decided in 2007 to embark on a major renovation project and then called on artists to transform the district into a real cultural and tourist center. It was following this major work, which began in 2009, that Gamcheon became the colorful village that we know today.
