Bongpyeong is also the hometown of Lee Hyo-seok and the setting of the story "When the Buckwheat Flower Blossoms." Therefore, Pyeongchang Hyoseok Cultural Festival (Buckwheat Flower Festival) takes place in Lee Hyo-seok's birthplace and Hyoseok Cultural Village.

The previous buckwheat field is still allowed for visitors to walk around. It is better to concentrate on the buckwheat flower without interference of sculptures. But you have to be careful when walking around, because you might perish buckwheat flowers.
