Despite having a major
role in Korea's earlier history (Jeonju served as the first capital of the Chosun Dynasty),
the region had only a minor role in South Korea's modern development. While Seoul and
the Gyeongsang Provinces received the bulk of the country's assistance for industrializing,
the region received little support and still maintain much of their agricultural heritage. For this
reason, much of the area remains underdeveloped, allowing people to experience the beauty
of traditional Korea. The region also has some of the best food, so visitors can sample many
different side dishes during even "simple" meals.
The stadium is divided into 4 areas of stands and roofs. It has an image of Chonju
'hapjooksun' (the traditional foldable Chonju fan made of thin bamboo sticks and paper or
cloth). The stadium is an opportunity to show the world the charm of Chonju. The meaning
of the fan expresses a will to open Chonju to the world. The mast and cables of the roof
structure were expressed in Chonju style. The parallel cables on the mast symbolize the 12
strings of the kayagum, a traditional Korean string instrument.
