In the meantime, please watch the videos for this and the next lesson in standard quality because those ones are uploaded correctly. You can do this by clicking on the HD button in the bottom right corner of the video area.


Thank you once again and sorry for the inconvenience!

Hello. The video in this lesson is wrong and is the same as in the previous lesson "New Year's day". Also it's the same issue in the next lesson "Bean-Throwing Ceremony" where you can find the video from this lesson "Coming of Age Day".
