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.

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.

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!

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. :)
