Cicadas of Korea: the summer noise makers

Wherever you walk in Seoul, you will hear the buzzing noise of Cicadas. At first, we had no idea where this loud and somewhat annoying sound was coming from. We concluded it originated from some sort of insect and discovered the truth on our way to Costco.

Here is a picture of one lying dead on the side of the road (these things are HUGE...about the size of your thumb; unfortunately this cicada did not get a proper burial):

I'm from Canada as well and I travelled to South Korea this summer and spent most of August there... I wondered what the heck this noise was at first I actually thought it was bird or something haha... They look rather gross.
