Namwon Chunhyang Festival
Introduction

In Namwon there are many places associated with the story of Chunhyang (a female entertainer), which is why Namwon is also called Chunhyang-gol or Chunhyang Village.
The Chunhyang Story, which recounts the love affair between Yi Mong-nyong (a nobleman) and Chunhyang, is now known all over the world. The festival, held every year on or around May 5, celebrates Chunhyang’s chastity.
