Petite France in the countryside of Seoul has become very famous after the popular Korea television drama series “My Love from the Star” was filmed in the park. Similar to the story of Little Prince who came to the earth and longing to go back to his left behind rose, the main character of “My Love from the Star” came to the earth 400 years ago and was due to go back to his planet when he fell in love with an actress. The romantic episode was filmed in the park!
Locating near Namiseon Island and the Garden of Morning Calm, Petite France is one of the attractions in between around Gapyeong and Cheongpyeong area. The theme park was built as a French cultural village and a youth training centre (it was originally a youth training site). “Flowers, stars, and the Little Prince” encapsulate the theme of the park but I think that these three elements are one – the Little Prince story if you are familiar with it. That’s because I didn’t see many flowers in the park, the Little Prince paintings and sculptures are every where though. It would be nice to grow a rose garden to complete the Little Prince story.
