The Spring of Jeonju Hyanggyo (Confucian School)

The warm spring breeze heralds the spring is on its way. When the March frost is over, the spring flowers like sansuyu (cornelian cherry), azalea, forsythia, and the others will fully bloom throughout Jeonju Hanok Village. Among the instagrammable attractions in the Hanok Village, I propose visiting Jeonju Hyanggyo (Confucian School) for a spring picnic under the flowers.

The relaxing atmosphere at Jeonju Hyanggyo

Away from the bustling main streets of Jeonju Hanok Village, Jeonju Hyanggyo is a perfect spot to enjoy the romantic and relaxed spring atmosphere. Among the Korean drama fans, Jeonju Hyanggyo is famous for the shooting site for Moonlight Drawn by Clouds (2016) and Sungkyunkwan Scandal (2010). The yellow cornelian cherry flowers blooming against the main building seem to spread the spring aura.

Instagrammable spots at Jeonju Hyanggyo

With the blooming flowers, everywhere in Jeonju Hyanggyo seems instagrammable. I recommend taking photo at Myungryundang building, surrounded by the gracefully white maehwa (plum) flowers. I couldn’t resist resting myself for a while on the floor of Myungryundang building, enjoying the calm atmosphere and the view of the flowers.

Strolling the Jeonju Hyanggyo alleyway

The alleyways surrounding Jeonju Hyanggyo is another hidden charm of Jeonju Hanok Village. The harmony of the green bamboo, cornelian cherry flowers, yellow plum flowers, and forsythias is not only fascinating but also calming. In the coming days when spring is finally here, I recommend visiting Jeonju Hanok Village, Jeonju Hyanggo, and Jeonjuchun River for the spring flowers!
