Spring – most beautiful time of the year. I get to see sunny days after long freezing Korean winter. And I also get to see cherry blossom. This is my third spring in South Korea but I never get bore of it.
Sakura, that’s what u call cherry blossom In Korean language. People often misunderstand and think about seeing cherries on trees but as google explains it…
Indeed every spring we all are mesmerized by the short stay (14 days) of cherry blossom. Their soft pink colour brings K-drama’s cute romance in reality. Their petals are all over the places. I am always so careful about not crushing them while walking on the road. And if doesn’t convince you, just scroll down to pics.(None of the pic is edited)
Alright I didn’t intend to make it cheesy neither I am a K-drama fan but their charm is irresistible. Blossom starts from mid-March to first week of April but exact date varies from region to region. Many events are dedicated to admire the beauty of cherry blossom throughout in Korea.
Jeonju host such event in Jeonju zoo. Last year in 2015 I was there. It’s the perfect place for family gathering, picnic, couple hangout (Korean english); I should rather stick to date. 😛
If you happen to be in Korea at this time of the year, give it a chance it’s a must see thing.
