Pungeoje

Pungeoje is a term used for a number of traditional Korean rites related to fishing. In seaside communities, rituals to summon aid from guardian spirits, send off boats, encourage a bounteous catch and ensure a safe return to harbour are still practiced. Often these rituals involve music and dancing, and forms of traditional Korean theatre. Pungeoje is one of the Important Intangible Cultural Properties of Korea.
