Ihwa Mural Village, Seoul

4.0
#7 of 15 in Neighborhoods in Seoul
Seated on the side of Mount Naksan, Ihwa Mural Village offers a quirky scene of traditional houses decorated with brightly colored painting. A success story for the 2006 Naksan art outreach project, the murals breathe new life into the village, nicknamed "moon village" due to its elevated proximity to the night sky. As you wander the steep rickety paths searching for your next mural, don't forget to look out over the skyline of Seoul. Maps are available to lead you to some of the more established murals and mosaics, although new works pop up all the time so keep your eyes peeled.

  • Ihwa-dong is the original village of seoul which has undergone gentrification. The abundance of beautiful murals and filming some Korean drama locations, make this village known to foreign tourists. Some cafe and souvenir shop was built here. One of his characteristics is strong is in addition to the murals, beautiful staircase uphill sharp (who usually used filming protagonist learn that holding a korean drama was drunk). Unfortunately, the process of gentifikasi here not to occur optimally. Some residents feel distracted and started to paint the murals back. The number of tourists make this location became very crowded and noisy.
