The Chunhyang Festival is held every April in Namwon, celebrating the famous folktale of Chunhyang. Attendees enjoy traditional music, colorful parades, swing riding, sijo poetry, participate in old-school games and watch a beauty contest where local females dress up in hanbok. In previous years, SHINee and other Kpop artists performed at the festival.
