Korean has a kind of belief.
If we make a wish while sun is rising on first Jan every year, that wish will be come true.
so Korean like to go to place which has good sight to watch sun rising. It is also making traffic jam.

I found 4 – 5 places about sunrise festival.

If you have chance, join festival.

Jeongdongjin Sunrise Festival
Yangyang New Year Sunrise Festival
Homigot national Sunrise Festival
Seongsan Sunrise Festival
Gangeung Gyeongpo Sunrise Festival

Period : 2007-12-31~2008-01-01

I recommend Jeongdongjin, because of easy to access, just need to catch the train.
