|Chunhyang Theme Park|
|Chunhyang Theme Park in the Namwon Tourist Complex in Namwon City, Jeollabuk-do Province celebrates the story of Chunhyang, a love story similar to that of Romeo and Juliette. Set in the Joseon Dynasty, the story tells of the secret love between Chun-hyang (the daughter of a former courtesan) and Mong-ryong (the son of a local governor).
Chunhyang Theme Park consists of five different sections illustrating the famous story: “Scene of First Encounter," "Scene of Pledge," "Scene of Love and Separation," "Scene of Suffering," and "Scene of Celebration.” “Scene of First Encounter" houses an information center, a lighted fountain, and a souvenir shop. In "Scene of Pledge," visitors are met with Okjihwan (a jade ring), a stone pagoda, and promise plaques. At the "Scene of Love and Separation," visitors can see a replica of Wolmae’s house, Buyongdang (where Chunhyang and Mong-ryong spent their wedding night together) and other filming locations of the movie version of “Chunhyang.” In the section "Scene of Suffering," patrons can visit Dongheon and Oksajeong (where Chunhyang's life in jail is reenacted). The final section (“Scene of Celebration”) not only houses performance centers, but also offers visitors a scenic open-air rest plaza.
