Spring has arrived in Korea considerably ahead of schedule


Gyeongchip, the day when frogs wake from their hibernation among the 24 solar terms of the year as determined by the celestial longitude of the sun, is on March 6. Yet the weather in Korea feels like spring.

The Korea Meteorological Administration defines the first day of spring as being among “nine consecutive days with an average temperature of over 5 degrees Celsius that never falls.” According to this definition, spring this year began on Feb. 23, 11 days earlier than last year.
