If you like architecture and are interested in design you definitely should take at least a walk around this spacious building. You can also go to the design exhibition.

A huge design of greatness with glimpse of city’s history and culture. Went there to watch the rose lights but arrived before dark. Amazed. Bejeweled. Enchanted. Must see!

We went in the evening. There was a food and art fair when we were there. A live musical performance as well. Food trucks were available and the local youth were spending their evening enjoying the good food and music.

Spectacular 3D architecture design! Impressive concept! Worth a visit. Beautiful from inside & outside for photos. There was a change of new lease for the shops, so we didn’t get to see many shops on that day. Shops were being refurbished.

Take Seoul metro line no 2, no 4 or no 5. Get off at "Dongdaemum History & Culture Park" station, Exit no 1., just few minute walk.
