Introduction
Daebyeonhang Port, located in the beautiful port city of Busan, sees the richest harvest of anchovies in Korea, especially in the months of April and May. It therefore holds the Busan Gijang Anchovy Festival during this period. Daebyeonghang Port is also one of the filming locations for the 2001 box office hit movie "Friends" featuring Jang Dong Gun and Yu Osung. The scene where Jang Dong Gun reminisces about his childhood memory of swimming in the ocean near a lighthouse while smoking a cigarette was filmed at this very location. The beautiful clear sea decorated with a lighthouse is not only popular during the Anchovy Festival, but is also a popular tourist attraction all year round.
