Happy Chuseok everyone! Hopefully you're not spending it like most Koreans, trapped in traffic on the highways out of Seoul. The Chosun Ilbo reports some Korean women are choosing not to visit family during the Korean holiday to avoid gaining weight from the bountiful feasts. I think weight gain is an excuse. I've heard that most women would rather not be stuck in their in-laws' kitchen for hours cooking and washing everyone's dishes.
