I came here for Hunder Wasser presentation and it's great. I always thought that Sejong Centre is a music performing hall, only to realise that on its side is a hall that goes vertically that supports art presentation. Staff here do allow people to take pictures as long as it's not flash photography. As a matter of courtesy, it always... More

With capacity of 3k pax it is a large scale hall similar to seoul art center... More

The facility itself is beautiful, the stage setup to how the seats are positioned are perfect I sat on the floor level but I am quite sure I would of had the same experience if... More

located very close to the subway exit (gwanghwamun) this place has very good exhibitions in seoul. They don't allow you to take photos inside by the way compared to few other places in seoul that really dont care.

In the basement of Sejong Art Center, the story of Admiral Yi Shun Sin is located where you can learn more about Yi Shun Sin and his career. As a Korean, I'm really proud we have a hero like Admiral Yi Shun Sin. You will learn more about his career and experience the turtle ship he has made for fights... More

I will never see another orchestral or chamber music performance here ever again, and if you're going to see a concert with musical pieces you care about, I heartily advise against it. The way the hall is built, the air conditioning actually drowns out lower-volume portions of the performance, as happened once during what might've otherwise been a deft and... More

On two ocasions in 2012 I have telephoned the Sejong Center to make reservations for ballet performances. When the booking office answered the phone I explained I wanted a reservation please can anyone speak some English? Both times there was talking in Korean, giggling and then the phone was hung up in my ear. The second time I was so... More

Neighborhood Profile
Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and historic buildings that are scattered throughout. Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or touring more historically somber sites such as Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong in particular is a beautiful place for a stroll in spring and autumn.
