Cheonggyecheon has been the subject of water control projects since Joseon dynasty. The stream began to be covered around 1930. And high-level road over the covered way was finished on 1970. But the environmental pollution and old structure of the road had been raising matters about safety. So the road was removed by two years' demolishing work from 2003 to 2005. Now 5.8 km section of the stream was recovered and changed into walking road and green area.
It was very crowded by citizens and tourists after several days' raining. We enjoyed sketching too with 14 participants including new comers, Kate, John, and Lee Jeong-hee. Much thanks!
