The rural villages in Seoul

Junggye-dong 104 village is well known for its rural atmosphere surrounded with woods and hills on the outskirts of Seoul. My sketches in this place are as follows.

Hongje-dong Ant village(alias Gaemi-Maul) is located on the hillside of Mt.Inwang in downtown Seoul. It is famous for the beauty of wall paintings drawn by several art colleges' students. My sketches are as follows.


A lot of old aged villages are still well-preserved in Seoul. But it's possible that these villages may be disappearing in order to construct highrise apartment complexes. I hope these would be in existence by renovation for harmony with nature.

스케일 큰 건물들만 보다,소박한 동네 그림을 보니 또 새롭습니다^^

서울에서 마지막 남은 달동네들이지요~~
자연순응,인간 스케일,소박한 삶...들을 함께 느끼기 위해서라도 잘 개선하는 방향으로 살려 나갔으면 좋겠습니다.
