“We came up to Seoul for the first time from Masan. We came here by chance and it’s really nice.”
The silver grass is not the only attraction to catch your eye at Haneul Park.
“Two other popular plants in this park are the Pink muhly grass, which has an attractive soft pink color, and the broom cypress, a small rounded plant which turns red as it matures.”
Visitors are busy snapping photos with friends in front of a huge bloom of cotton candy.
“I thought there would only be silver grass. It’s beautiful to see pink muhly grass as well.”
Broom cypress is another crowd-pleaser.
This ornamental plant with bright red leaves spruces up the scene even more.
“It’s very beautiful here and very special. We love it.”
The Seoul Silver Grass Festival runs through next Thursday.
This year, the festival will stay open until 10 pm every night, meaning visitors can enjoy the festival for two more hours than usual.
However, bear in mind that, as this weekend is the only weekend during the festival period,… big crowds are expected.
