Eating Yeot candy to bring fortune

Informant is a Korean born immigrant who went to primary school in Korea and college in Hawaii lives in Los Angeles

Superstition as told by informant: It’s one of the main superstitions in Korea that every parent will stick the yeot( sticky candy like tootsie roll) onto the college door  that he/she is applying for do wishing that his child will make it to that school on the day the child is taking the college entrance exam.

Upon further research this candy also symbolizes fortune and good luck as do many other Korean folk objects. The candy is made from glutinous rice so it is naturally sticky.
