[Reporter : Michelle Kim] Hello Conn-young

So where can we go to enjoy the spring season[Reporter : ] I'm sure a lot of people think of flower festivals when they plan an outing on spring day. So I have an event that for some of you may require an overnight trip to check out beautiful, colorful flowers in different regions of Korea.

As the days are getting warmer, all the different regions of Korea are having their own festivals to celebrate the new season and appreciate the flower blossoms.

It is still quite chilly in the early mornings and late at night, but the valleys and the grass fields of the Southern provinces of Jeolla-do are overflowing with spring flowers. To celebrate and share this beautiful sight with people from other parts of Korea, the southern province has is holding its annual Spring Flower Festival.

From yellow forsythias, pastel pink apricot blossoms, red camellia flowers and snow white magnolias, the Yu-dal Mountains at Mokpo are filled with gorgeous flowers.

The Palgong Mountains in Daegu have also been crowded with springtime picnickers who come to enjoy the fully bloomed spring flowers and other exciting events.

People are enchanted by the numerous bushels of white magnolias at the Palgong Mountain beltway and sentimentalize over the deepening of spring.

Another charm of this spring flower event is the making of bibimbap, large enough to feed 2000 people.

[Interview : Kim Ji-hae, Daegu Resident] "I waited in line for half an hour to eat this delicious bibimbap. It's really nice to come here and not just look at flowers but also to eat delicious food.

The 8th Hangang Yeouido Spring Flower Festival is being held from the 13th to the 23rd of this month. The cherry blossoms aren't in full bloom just yet, but the trees and paths look just as pink and beautiful.

Yeouido will be filled with not just beautiful scenery but also other events. From the 17th to the 20th there will be movie screenings at the floating stage, featuring films "The Happy Life" and "The Spiriting Away of Sen and Chihiro".
