Baekje Cultural Land [백제문화단지], opened in October 2010, is a historical film set built to preserve and showcase the history and culture of the Baekje Kingdom (백제/百濟; 18 BCE – 660 CE). It is featured in four parts. The main part, ‘Sabiseong’, consists of replicas of buildings considered historically important to the Baekje Kingdom. This includes the Buddhist temple Neunggasa (능사), Sabi Fortress or Busosanseong, a village (with a replica of general Gyebaek’s [계백] house) and a Baekje’s first capital, Wiryeseong (위례성). The other parts of this theme park are the two-storey Baekje Historical Museum, the Korea National University of Cultural Heritage and the Lotte Buyeo Resort. The governing body of the park are Chungnam, the Cultural Heritage Administration and the Lotte Buyeo Resort&Co.
The park is located in the village of Hapjeong [Hapjeong-ri/합정리] in Buyeo County’s Gyuam Township [Gyuam-myeon/규암면]. From here, it is about 20 min. by public transport to Chilji Park [칠지공원].
Please note the historical anachronism for Moon Lovers, Six Flying Dragons, The Great Seer and Faith: Baekje was the first of the Three Kingdoms to be conquered by Silla (supported by a Tang Dynasty military alliance).
