Wax figures of Hallyu stars Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo have been gathering attention after being set up at the Gangwon Drama Gallery in the city of Chuncheon of Gangwon Province.

Gangwon Province is offering life-size wax figure displays of Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo to tourists.

The figures were custom made after the province officials settled copyright issues with the agencies of the two stars and are expected to gather tourists as they are allowed to take pictures.

In an effort to continue the Hallyu popularity, Gangwon Province opened a drama gallery featuring the bench and snowman, Joon Sang's home and other memorable scenes of Winter Sonata without the wax figures.

The drama gallery was visited by 25,853 people from within Korea and 7,508 foreigners.

A Gangwon Province official commented, "The wax figures were originally planned to be offered with the opening of the gallery but copyright remained an issue. As they are now made in life-size models, we hope this will spark the popularity of Hallyu once again".
