Lunar New Year in Korea is a time for getting together with family, honoring ancestors and eating a bowl of rice cake soup for good luck. If you are a K-pop fan, it is also about idol-filled specials on all of the networks and festive greetings from your favorite stars dressed up in the traditional Korean hanboks.
