    The good news is it seems that some form of construction is actually taking place!





    The bad news is that apparently new financial problems have arisen regarding this past summer's construction company switch (Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. and STX Construction Co.) and Gangwon Jungdo-developments Corp. (GJC), an investment arm of Gangwon Province. I'm not totally clear on what is happening but it seems that GJC is low on funds and is considering selling the land around Legoland such as where the theme park's parking lot will be located.

    More financial complications for LEGOLAND Korea.

    The Chuncheon Legoland project is in a dilemma over the payment of 60 billion won in Gangwon Province's investment.

    According to "Kangwon News" on July 22, although the Legoland developer Merlin Entertainments demanded 60 billion won in investment from Gangwon Province and the Jungdo Development Corporation by July 22, the possibility of a delay in the construction of the project is being raised as STX, the existing construction company, has decided to press ahead with a lawsuit in case of the deposit of the investment.
    "STX still manages the site under the authority of the builder, and under the current circumstances, Hyundai Engineering & Construction can never enter the site," an STX official said, stressing, "If the province pays 60 billion won to Merlin, we will consider this as a unilateral notice of cancellation of the contract and take a legal action."

    It's not totally clear from the translations but Merlin Entertainments has now selected Hyundai Engineering & Construction to be the main contractor for the theme park project which is replacing the previously selected contractor, STX Construction. This is causing additional financial and legal issues...

    In a completely shocking turn of events that literally nobody could have predicted, it seems that not only will construction not begin this month like what was previously planned but also there are now additional financial issues that have arisen plus there's debate regarding what construction company will be chosen and now the potential opening may be as late as 2023.
