Gunhangje, Korea's largest cherry blossoms festival, opens today.

The city of Jinhae is already covered in pink blossoms.

Lee Jeong-hoon has more.


After the sun has set, the cherry blossoms covering the city of Jinhae add even more to the ambiance.

The exciting performance by a naval band on the eve of the festival adds to the festivities.

The city is filled with visitors enjoying the spring ambiance.

<Lee Seon-suk / Mokpo-si, South Jeolla Province> "I only heard about it in Mokpo, South Jeolla Province, and this is my first time here. It really is great and wonderful. I want to come back next year."

The area around the Yeojwacheon Stream, named as a top cherry blossom spot by CNN, becomes a fantastic place at night, as the cherry blossom tunnel, LED lights and luminaire lights all come together.

Jinhae Tower, standing tall in the city of Jinhae, is also transformed in soft yellow light.

<Lee Dong-hyuk / Changwon-si> "For sure, it is more beautiful than in the daytime because of the lights. I wish more people, not just the residents of Changwon, would come and see this."

The cherry blossoms feast in Jinhae continues until April 10.
