The lighting festival transforms the cold winter street into a romantic world that even seems to warm up the cold season. Why not jump into the romantic world of the Haeundae Lighting Festival, which fills the night sea of Haeundae with beautiful lights?
Have you heard of Haeundae Lighting Festival that beautifully illuminates Haeundae Beach and Gunamro Square during winter? Among building illuminations on both sides of the square, a light passageway consisting of lined light gates catches your eye first. Above all, you will find handwritten messages in the middle of a silver-rimmed space with yellow lights awe-inspiring.
The light gates stretching out toward the sea are glittering purple and gold. People fill the plaza as they take photos of the gorgeous night views. Each cheering message of the arched light gates seems to brighten up travelers’ hearts as much as the beauty of the glowing lights. Looking at their lovely family members, people are full of smiles.
Passing through the light gates, you’ll see a red sleigh, golden Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and a white snowman, all of which are indispensable for Christmas. It seems that you could fly up with Rudolph in the dark night sky if you got on the red-lit sleigh.
The huge Christmas tree lighting is glowing at the end of the square. It’s too big to be seen at once. The green tree lighting looks like a fluttering wedding veil. It also seems like a magical tree, which makes anyone happy if they stand under it. Another tree lighting, standing a little further behind the magical tree, warmly looks down at Gunamro Square, sparkling with blue bands of lights, sky-blue colored snowflake lighting, and yellow illuminations. Its unique feature includes an open space underneath the tree, allowing people to pass by under it.
The sound of small firecrackers that people shoot draws your attention. Blue illuminations are dancing like waves on one side of the sand beach. The silver-lit castle rising among the swaying waves spreads out beautifully. Moreover, the big red gift box may be filled with Christmas wishes. People stop to see the glittering flowers of the tree that look like fallen snowflakes. The sparkling castle in the blue sea and the blooming tree make all of the travelers feel like they are leading characters in a fairy tale.
The dark night sea of Haeundae, in contrast with the sea of lights, makes the scene more phenomenal. In addition to the sparkling illuminations on the streets, the smile on people’s faces further brightens up Haeundae Lighting Festival.
