Boritgogae (or the barley hump), a term used in the past, refers to the farm hardship period around April and May according to the lunar calendar when barley is still unripe after they exhaust the supply of long-stored grains.

 

After running out of food reserve secured from autumn harvest, people used to suffer from famine and they had to take rough food with low nourishment to solve their hunger. But now, that kind of food is perceived as well-being food that restores the balance of the body. Boritgogae Village is famous as an experience village among people who want to improve their body.
