"Hallyuwood" plans progress in Goyang City, Korea
(Thanks to Jim Larson for the hint.)

According to KBS News Hallyuwood will be a 990.000 square meter Hollywood-style next-generation amusement park complex situated in Goyang City, Gyeonggi Province (ca. 1 hr away from Seoul). Its purpose is to boost "Hallyu", the Korean pop culture wave in East and South-East Asia. The plans of the ambitious project for the next-generation amusement park complex were announced in the end of 2005 and the project has been estimated to finalize in 2010.

The blog Brian in Jeollanam-do also discusses the futuristic concept of Hallyuwood which he sees as nice counterbalance for emphasizing the more traditional elements of Korean culture.
