Spooky Summer in South Korea

Summer, not autumn, is when South Koreans celebrate all things that go bump in the night. The traditional ghosts, called "gwishin" are believed to be the souls of the dead trapped here on earth. Those interested in gwishin visit a place called The Yongin Village, which is supposed to be the paranormal heart of South Korea. It is believed this is where the gwishin roam the countryside. This is also where there are numerous amusement park haunted houses. A history of the village and the gwishin can be found here.
