Korean Grooms

     Wedding traditions, as well as pre-wedding traditions, differ from culture to culture. Every nation has its own set of unique customs, and it’s no surprise that some are thought of as considerably more strange than others. Let’s take a certain Korean pre-wedding ritual, for example.

     After a Korean couples wedding ceremony, friends of the groom steal his shoes and socks. After tying a rope around his ankles, the groom’s friends proceed to beat the soles of his feet with dried yellow corvina, which is a type of fish. This is thought to make the groom stronger in his marriage and family life. Although it may not seem like much to us, it sure means a lot to the men of Korea. In the end, this is all that matters.
