    Trees with cute clothes!

    This is not a sight usually reserved for fairy tales. You can see such trees in Seoul Olympic Park.

    When you pass through Peace Plaza in Olympic Park and walk towards the Velodrome, Weight Lifting Stadium, and Handball Stadium, you can see trees lined up along the streets, wearing colorfully knitted clothes.

    This project was the brainchild of a certain internet club that wanted to create more exciting clothes for trees, which had only been protected from insects with straw wrappings before. It’s a great sight for visitors to the park, and it also helps the trees last through the winter.
