Spring flowers bloom in Korea

 
To signal the clear coming of Spring flowers are blooming all across the country thanks to the warm spell in recent days.
 
Naturally, Koreans are celebrating the new season with various festivals.
Oh Jung-hee introduces to us some of these colorful events. Pink and white plum blossoms cover the mountains of Yangsan, in Korea's southernmost Gyeongsangnam-do province.
 
The flowers are some of the first to bloom every year, helping people move away from the chill of winter. "The weather's much milder here than in Seoul. The white plum trees are already in full bloom, signaling the start of a new season. Spring is here indeed."
 
Families and groups of friends were out to enjoy a leisurely stroll among the blooms during the Wondong Plum Blossom Festival over the weekend.
 
The spring breeze and warm sunlight made for a perfect afternoon. "I came here with my boyfriend for a short one-day trip. This is the first time I've come to a plum blossom festival and the flowers here are really pretty. I feel like it's spring already."
 
People who want to enjoy the spring weather somewhere closer to Seoul can head out to Everland in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do province.

Korea's largest theme park has kicked off its annual tulip festival, and its Four Seasons Garden is filled with over a million flowers.
 
The garden has tulips in a wide variety of colors, including less common varieties with a two-color gradient.
 
Other flowers like grape hyacinths and daisies give the garden some diversity... and there are photo zones set up around the area for added interest. "The landscape is very beautiful here, and we get to enjoy lots of flowers -- different colors and different types of flowers. We have a lot of photos, so that when we come back to the Philippines, we'll have a lot of memories."
 
Everland's tulip festival continues through April 23rd, and the garden is open until 9 in the evening for those who want to take a romantic stroll through the blossoms.
