Spring Flowers in Korea

South Korea —

If you’ve been following my blog since last year, you could’ve seen my post about the four (4) seasons in South Korea. This year, I decided to separate a post for the spring flowers. This post also serves as my reference to their Korean names, another way to learn the language.

The colorful season is too beautiful to be overlooked and I don’t understand why many people still prefer autumn over spring. This season isn’t my favorite either because I love them all! I see beauty in each season to a point that I get separation anxiety once it almost ends.

The earth laughs in flowers. 

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

So, have a feast for your eyes over my photos and tell me you’re convinced that spring is more beautiful than autumn. Just kidding!

Here’s the list in alphabetical order:

Azalea (진달래)

They grow everywhere across the country in various shades of red, pink, white and purple but, if you want to see a hill covered with royal azaleas, Gunpo is the right place to be.

Forsythia (개나리)

If you want to see a yellow mountain covered with forsythia blossoms in the early days of April, head to Eungbongsan. It also offers a panoramic sight of the west part of Seoul and Hangang River. Last March 31 to April 2, they celebrated the 20th Eungbongsan Forsythia Festival. The mountain is also one of the filming locations of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (2016) and Personal Taste (2007).
