Gapyeong-gun, South Korea

On the way to the Moonlight Garden past the hometown garden, a long tunnel that looks like hanging pink petals awaits. As if you are just starting to love, in the pink tunnel, pink smile flowers bloom on the faces of lovers. The entrance from the morning square to the Moonlight Garden is like a fairy tale country. Giant bears and mushrooms, all sorts of animals and a sled-pulling Rudolph sit amongst the larch. The white church with an angel inside is the most popular photo zone.

It is a popular photo zone for lovers and families to stand in line with a white church to take pictures.
