You may have seen a K-drama scene in which a character has a peculiar dream and is urged by others to buy a lottery ticket after revealing their dream. Well, there are specific types of dreams that Koreans interpret as symbols for good fortune. After dreaming one or more of these seven different types of dreams, you should buy a lottery ticket because you supposedly have a higher chance of winning. A lot of these dreams seem really negative in Western reckoning, but are apparently considered extremely fortuitous in Korea. Check out these seven superstitious Korean dream interpretations below!
1. Pigs blocking the way
Pigs are considered symbols of luck and blessings due to the fact that they grow large quite easily. If you dream of pigs, you will apparently experience good fortune. The more pigs in your dream, the better! Furthermore, the best kind of pig dream is when a crowd of them block roads or when you embrace a dirty pig.
2. Getting poop thrown onto your head
Dreaming of poop indicates that hindrances will be eliminated. Just like relieving bowels in the bathroom, dreams involving feces reflect things progressing smoothly. However, dreaming of throwing away dung is a negative sign. If you dream of having your whole body covered in the excretory substance, you will surely experience a windfall and/or success!
3. Meeting a president or a famous individual
Meeting famous individuals such as presidents reflect a good prognosis. If they say kind words or give you money, then real life circumstances are expected to improve. Likewise, shaking hands and receiving business cards are also positive symbols. I wonder if this Korean dream interpretation also applies to meeting K-pop idols in dreams…
4. Experiencing a sea of fire
Apparently dreaming of a sea of flames is the surest dream for winning the lottery. Roaring flames mean that growth and flourishing will occur soon. Also, dreaming of your body, your neighborhood, oryour company being on fire is considered signs of good events to come.
5. Giving birth
Giving birth is seen as a symbol of new life. Thus, childbirth dreams represent acquiring new rights or possessions. If you give birth to twins or triplets, your luck is multiplied that much more! The baby’s looks also factor into how much good fortune is in store for you.
6. Getting stabbed and bleeding
Getting stabbed and bleeding doesn’t sound like much fun. However, Korean superstition reckons that death means new life. So if you die in your dream, it means you will be able to escape any current bad situations. Don’t be scared if you dream of dying, getting shot, or getting cancer. Think of it as an opportunity to win the lottery instead!
7. Swimming in clean water
Dreaming of swimming in clean water is believed to be an auspicious sign. It means your business will do well or you will get hired. These kinds of dreams mean problems will get solved easily. Unfortunately, if you dream of falling into dirty water, it is considered a bad omen. In that case, it wouldn’t be advisable to purchase a lottery ticket.
There you have it! Those were seven different Korean dream interpretations that mean you should buy a lottery ticket. What do you think of these superstitions? Have you ever had any of these kinds of dreams? Don’t forget to comment below!
