The difference between the winter and summer temperatures is larger than most other regions, but it is possible to withstand the harsh cold thanks to the alternation of three cold days and four warm days, a climatic characteristic unique to Korea. There are four distinct seasons: a long winter, short summer, and even shorter spring and fall. The summer is marked by high temperature and high humidity levels, while the winter is cold and dry. 70% of the annual precipitation occurs in summer, while the level of precipitation in winter is extremely low.
