The 2009 Jindo Arirang Festival (2009진도아리랑축제), scheduled for October 31st through November 3rd in Jeollanam-do's Jindo county, has been cancelled because of swine flu worries. A notice, in Korean, has appeared on the Jindo county homepage as well. The Jindo Arirang is a regional variation of the popular Korean folk song "Arirang," a variation about which Google can tell you more.
In other local festival news, the annual "Kill Lots of Japanese People Festival" (명량대첩축제) in Haenam and Jindo counties had its schedule abbreviated this year because of swine flu, and will be held from October 9th through 11th. It was originally scheduled to begin on the 8th. This is the festival mentioned on GFN a while back, the one that features a recreation of the Battle of Myeongnyang.
Yeah, better pictures than this of the recreation exist, but it's late, I'm tired, and I don't like violence.
