ritual foodstuff prices high at sôl

"Korean Product Price Association"(?) (Han'guk mulka hyôphoe) has surveyed prices of foodstuffs needed for the ancestor rituals during sôl in downtown discount stores, and calculated the average price of a ch'areye table at 152 100 won (100 €). The same survey done on Jan. 7 in marketplaces (chaerae sijang) resulted to the average price of 118 000 won, which means there's been a huge price hike during the one week.

1 kg of beef, 1kg pork, 3kg poultry and 10 pieces of eggs are from 56 000 to 65000 won (37-43€).

Fruit harvest wasn't good, so the prices are high. 5 apples, 5 peas and 10 dried persimmons (kotkam) make 31 000-33 000 W (21-22€). [The fruit prices during sôl and ch'usôk are always outrageous.]
