Kite Flying

For many people Kite flying might not be viewed as a sport per say maybe more of a leisure activity - something to do during the warm summer days with the children. But fact is that Kite Flying is considered a big sport in Korea especially but also Asia.

Kites can be seen in Korea during Lunar New Year as well as Chuseok , the original kites were made of bamboo sticks and traditional Korean newspaper. During my last stay in Korea I did see some kites around Chuseok so Korea is still loyal to its ancient traditions despite the fact that it is a leading economy in Asia with a high technology development and brands.
