This unofficial Korean holiday is associated with Valentine’s Day and White Day which each also fall on the 14th of the month in sequence, 14 Feb – Valentine’s Day, 14 March – White Day – 14 April – Black Day.
Black Day is where those who didn’t receive gifts on the first two of these events, particularly singles, dress in black and gather together to commiserate over black-coloured food, especially jajangmyeon.
