Tricky to find and explore
Jul 2018
Attention last time I checked the trip advisor location is wrongly placed. Search for "Ihwa Mural Village" on Google map for a correct location. Once there the village is on a hill so be ready to climb up and down a lot if you want to find all the drawings. It's a lot of explore but not always rewarded

Fishes not any more on the steps.
Apr 2017
I admired the photos showing the red fish on the steps but unfortunately, it had been washed away by the rain and snow. There are too many interesting murals remained and the neighborhood worth to visit if you are in love with wall paintings.

Fun game of I-Spy
May 2016
We went to this area of town after having looked online to see what there was to see. We knew what we were looking for and it was a fun game of "find the ________" as we wandered the streets. Was disappointed that the goldfish stairs and flower stairs were painted grey for the current time until three months from now as they were being redone (at least according to a local) but there were still tons of other things to see! We took the subway and then wandered the area as we made our way back! Fun for kids (they loved posing in front of the different pieces of art as well as looking for them) and interesting for adults!

Fish and flowers are gone!
May 2016 • Friends
It was very disappointing to find out that the stairs with fish and mosaic flowers were painted over with grey paint. The remaining murals are OK but not worth all the hassle that is required to get there. If you however want to go there let me give you detailed instructions. Go to Dongdaemun station. From exit 10 head straight for approx 30m till you see a bus stop with a bright green "03" bus number on it. It will be a small green bus and Naksan Park is the last stop (do not freak out when bus driver will make a loop just at the bus entrance). Then, when facing the park you'll have entrances on left and right - go right if you want to get a paper map. If you chose this entrance, walk approx 30 metres towards the park until you will see wooden stairs (with green stripes on the steps) leading down. Take the stairs (two sets of them) and head left. Within few steps you will see a path leading straight and an U-turn. Take the U-turn (you will see a metal installation of a man and a dog). After few steps you will find a little pub/cafe called Jazz Story. They have paper maps of the murals and toilets! Once you have a map you can find your way round (you have to walk the U-turn back). The bus stop is also marked on the map.

Tons of Nice Mural Arts along the Up Hill Alley
Nov 2015 • Solo
Can shoot many shots along the alleys until top of the hill. It's better to visit in the morning (before noon) or late afternoon.

An attraction, far faaar awaaay~
May 2015 • Friends
I came here because I found many interestin reviews about this place having many good spots for photo taking. I drained my energy to walk to this attraction because it's on the top of a hill and you must walk (or climb?) for about 30-40 mins from the nearest subway station. This place is actually famous for its mural village (Ihwa Mural Village) which used in many dramas as shooting location, but if you're not a drama lover than this place is just no other than a place which got some murals on the walls. If you have much time in Seoul, maybe you can visit here for some sightseeing. But if you only have limited time, this place is actually not really worth it.

P.S this place looks much better in picture :p

Nice pictures to be taken and there weren't that many people so the lines weren't that long.
The walk to the public art along the Seoul wall is very nice and calming as well. It's a must do!

Good place if wanted more photo collections.

Easily reachable by the subway. Need to climb up the hills to reach the mural paintings area. I'll suggest to wear a comfortable shoe. :)
