Korea's fortune tellers

, September 3, 2013

Fortune teller Song Byung-chang looks at a child's fate, or Saju in Korean, at his office in Seoul. Anxious parents have long sought hints from fortune-tellers about how well their children will do in school. The shamans, men and women who perform traditional religious rites, say parents asking about their children's academic and career prospects - at 50,000 to 100,000 won ($45 to $90) an hour - usually take the advice they get very seriously.
