I remember talking to myself that I should find this Seoul city art project called Ihwa Mural Village 이화 벽화마을, after I watched Rooftop Prince drama and TaecGui Global We Got Married Korean TV show.
How interesting that Seoul City Metropolitan government did this city project to save a left behind (almost slum) neighborhood into a thriving tourism place. Just by assigning about 60 local artist/painter to do art work on villager’s house walls and streets and promoted it through drama and TV shows, it successfully attract tourists from all over the world.
The funny part it, not many origin Seoul people who knows or actually visited this place or find it interesting to see 😆
Here are unique drawings that I saved to be my precious memory strolling around the Mural Village 이화 벽화마을, located at Ihwa-dong, Seoul, South Korea.
We are getting into the end of the Mural Village art city tour 😀
And the last picture I took, is my favorite of all time ❤ photo
I was very happy and satisfied with this local Seoul city trip. Travelling alone can be very worthy like this. XD
This journey taken on September 2014, therefore I guess when you read this later, many of the painting has been changed.
How to get there? Take subway and stop at Hyehwa station, you will pass Marronier park first before walk up to Mural Village.
