Summer in Korea lasts from June through August and is the hottest season of the year. The average temperature is usually between 23 to 26°C. However, because of high humidity levels, it feels much hotter than it really is. Rains between the end of June and mid-July bring pleasant mild temperatures. The rainy period varies from one to three weeks, and is referred to as "jangma."
Late July and particularly August are known for scorching heat and typhoon season. The best way to cope with summer heat is to head to either to the beaches or to the mountains. A great advangage of the season is the abundance of seasonal fruit like melons, watermelons, peaches, and much more.
