PyeongChang 2018 : Hyo Seok Cultural Festival


Blue sky and endless flower field... isn't this view amazing?

Benarlah kata orang. Jauh perjalanan, luas pemandangan. Untuk menikmati keindahan seperti dalam gambar di atas, korang kenalah pergi ke PyeongChang, South Korea. Pemandangan yang cantik ini telah menjadi sumber inspirasi kepada penulis Lee Hyo Seok (1907 - 1942) dalam satu penulisannya bertajuk "When Buckwheat Flower Bloom". Buku ini menjadi sangat popular hinggakan ada festival khas bagi memperingati penulis ini.

Hyo Seok Cultural Festival offers various participatory programs such as poem exhibition, literature night, Hyo Seok essay contest, nature experiences (e.g. fingernail coloring using balsam), buckwheat food cooking, and many more. Korang juga boleh ambil tour untuk melihat tempat Lee Hyo Seok’s dilahirkan. Ada memorial hall juga kat sana.

Lee Hyo Seok 李孝石 (1907-1942), who wrote under the pen-name 'Gasan' was born February 23, 1907 in Pyeongchang, Gangwon- do. Lee wrote more than 70 pieces of fiction and first attracted attention of the literary world in 1928 when his story ˹City and Ghost˼ was published in 1. Lee published many other works including ˹Unanticipated Meeting˼, ˹Shattered Red Lantern˼ and ˹At Sea Near Russia˼, all of which reflected his socialist sympathies. ˹When Buckwheat Flowers Bloom˼ is set in Lee's hometown Bongpyeong-myeon, Pyeongchang-gun and the area is still famous for its buckwheat production.
