People from warm (read: hot) countries like us always dream of experiencing winter, but it usually comes around during the year-end holidays.
But there is one region in South Korea known as Gangwon
that still gets snow in March
As you know, the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics have just ended last month but the celebration continues as we welcome the Winter Paralympics.
The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Paralympics is happening from 9 to 18 March. In conjunction with the games, a special festival will be taking place just for the tourists and fans.
This festival will later transform into a full-blown ‘Global Winter Festival in Gangwon’ to be held in March every year.
So, now that we’re here, this is your last chance to enjoy the ‘Snow Festival in March
’ this month as winter continues in Gangwon!
Here are some of the things you can expect from the Snow Festival:
1) Go PyeongChang 2018 with Lee Dong Wook
Lee Dong Wook is no stranger to K-drama fans, especially following his latest appearance in the hit series, 'Goblin
' as the Grim Reaper.
As the official ambassador for the Winter Paralympics, Lee will be making an appearance at a meet-and-greet session with the fans to talk more about the drama.
So if you want to be part of this special storytelling session with the star, get your tickets to South Korea now!
