Roses of Sharon Bloom on the Runway/활주로에 무궁화 꽃

Last September 2, a fashion show featuring creations inspired by the mugunghwa (South Korea's national flower) was staged in Cheonggye Plaza in Seoul. 

Mugunghwa is also known as the American "Rose of Sharon". Koreans have expressed their love for the flower for thousands of years, with a band of warriors (the Hwarangs) inspired by, and a day dedicated to the flower. While South Koreans still openly show their fondness for mugunghwa, North Koreans show their fondness more now for kimjongilia and their national flower, the magnolia.
