|Wonju Hanji Festival Committee, Gangwon No.1 Broadcasting /|
In early Fall every year, the Hanji Festival with the theme of Hanji (traditional Korean paper) is held in Wonju (Gangwon-do), a city with rich history of producing Hanji. This year, the festival opens the Hanji Theme Park for the first time. The festival, in particular, hosts a special opening event: the Hanji Fashion Show. Performed on a main stage in Hanji Theme Park, the fashion show offers the infinite potential of Hanji (its transformation from mulberry to paper, fibers, and functional new materials).
Hanji Theme Park also boasts a colorful array of lanterns made of Hanji. These lanterns (e.g., lotus flower lanterns and cloud lanterns), reflecting wishes of visitors, dot the sky while visitors can craft unique Hanji items at various booths.
All in all, the festival offers more than 100 exciting events, programs, and performances (to name a few, Hanji Puppet Show, Korean Shuttlecock Contest, and Hanji Craft/Gift Box Contest). During the festival, visitors may want to visit nearby tourist attractions including Chiaksan Mountain National Park, Baeunsan Mountain, and Sinrim Seonghwangrim Forest.
