A document containing the would-be groom’s horoscopic data, the hour, day, month, and year of his birth by the lunar calendar, sent to the wouldbe bride’s family.
When a m arriage proposal was made, the groom’s family sent to the bride’s family a document containing the information of the birth of the groom and wrapped in a double-layered cloth. In Jeollanam-do Province, the document was accompanied with a few gifts, including enough fabric to make a jacket and skirt for the bride. The document was wrapped in a piece of double-layered cloth, one layer red and the other blue, and the gifts were placed in a box or wrapping cloth. Both were then wrapped in a blue wrapping cloth and sent to the bride’s family through a matchmaker. In Gyeongsangnam-do Province, a marriage proposal was made through a matchmaker according to an agreement between the two families and sent from the groom’s family to the bride’s family together with the sajudanja and a piece of cloth for the bride’s jacket. The process was similar in Hwanghae- do Province, where the marriage proposal was sent from the groom’s family to the bride’s with the sajudanja and a few gifts.
