But the city in North Jeolla, in collaboration with the Korea Creative Content Agency, has stepped in to show that there is more to enjoy in the village even after dark.Right across from the hanok (traditional Korean home) village, a gigantic 47-by-16.2-meter (154-by-53-foot) screen has been set up in front of Pungnam Gate (Treasure No. 308), the southern gate of Jeonju Castle. This media facade uses the gate as its canvas on which to play different videos that highlight not only the beauty of the gate itself but also other traditional culture.
On the screen, a dragon flies over the peaceful hanok village from the Joseon era (1392-1910) and rises to the sky, followed by scenes of people doing a performance and break dancing. “Pungnam Gate Wears Lights” started earlier this month and will last until July. The shows start every Thursday and Friday at 9 p.m.
