The Lion(Saja) Surfer, Korea

The lion dance performed to defeat evils in the first full-moon night of the year.

The Lion is invited to houses. He dances around the courtyard acting as if he is catching and eating something. This act is meant to eliminate the old and stale energies and evils. And it also keeps ghosts and spirits away from entering the house.
