Did you know the importance and symbolism of red pepper in Korea?
Geumjul [금줄]. Taboo rope Geumjul is a ritual twine rope that is hung on the front door when a child is born. Ordinarily, Korea’s twine is created by twisting to the right, but the twine for Geumjul is twisted to the left. In the twine, white pieces of paper and charcoal is slotted in, as those items ward off evil spirit. If the baby is a boy, dried red pepper is also slotted in.
The red peppers marking the birth of a boy were based on the traditional belief that evil spirits were scared of the color red. In addition, the pepper has long been a phallic symbol in Korea. It was included in the symbolic objects attached to the taboo rope from the 18th century, when red pepper farming became widespread.
Geumjul hangs on the front door for three weeks, during which the visitors know not to enter the house.
This norigae can be given as a gift to a woman who just gave a birth for baby boy.
