Jeongseon in Gangwon Province, the hometown of actor Won Bin, will build a road named in his honor.
The 6-km road will wind through the town's small river, called Auraji, known for the year-round beauty of its landscape. Won Bin married actress Lee Na-young in an outdoor ceremony in the area in 2015.
The construction is expected to be complete by 2020 at a cost of W4.5 billion (US$1=W1,124).
The route will include a 250-m-long suspension footbridge, a pine forest and a rest area.
Jeongseon Mayor Choi Seung-jun said, "We aim to promote the local economy by creating tourist destinations related to Won Bin from the town."
