    SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, MAR 5: (No charge for the supply, release, or publication of the photograph. The photos are allowed for editorial and commercial use, and the image is retouched with color modifications.)

    Yeonnam-dong section of the Gyeongui Line Forest Park, you can find Yeonnam-dong’s Semo-gil, a triangular section of alleyways where the park’s end meets Gajwa Station on the Gyeongui-Jungang Line. As one of Seoul’s representative low-rise residential areas, it was selected as a target location for the Seoul Alleyway Regeneration Project. In efforts to preserve their original appearance while also facilitating the alleyway environments, the old streets have been improved by replacing old streetlamps with smart CCTV streetlamps, repairing old stairs, installing emergency fire extinguishing equipment, and more. Though deceivingly quiet, Yeonnam-dong’s Semo-gil offers a warm and welcoming appearance where traces of life along with spaces boasting personalities such as wine shops, leather workshops, and hidden galleries in every nook and cranny.
