Introduction

Every year, Seoul National Cemetery hosts an event when the weeping cherry blossoms within the cemetery are in full bloom. The weeping cherry blossoms symbolize patriotism and have a particularly pink appearance. The weeping cherry blossoms offer a fascinating sight with their branches hanging down, resembling a waterfall of flowers. The hanging branches may also seem to be bowing down to pay respect to the brave soldiers and martyrs who fought for the country.
