Who needs Disneyland when there’s a facility dedicated to Hallyuwood? Yup, a Hallyuwood theme park is being built on a 990,000 square metre site in Gyeonggi Province. It will be completed by 2012.
Below are more of the artist’s impression of the place. Sweet!
The theme park will house studios where Korean dramas and films are made, entertainment facilities, a museum, shops, Korean cooking classes and restaurants!
Wow, it sure sounds like a must-visit place for the K-popped! Trio….four years and counting!
The ground-breaking ceremony called the Hallyuwood Start Festival was held at Janghang-dong in Goyang City at 5pm yesterday (May 29).
Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan, the guest-of-honour cum goodwill ambassador of Hallyuwood Theme Park, was present at the event.
Anyway, an official with the Gyeonggi government explained: “We thought Chan is a perfect fit for this position to publicise Korean culture to the world, as he has a deep interest in Korean culture and is on intimate terms with many Korean stars.”
