Description: 

Buam-dong is a neighborhood in central Seoul that was once occupied mostly by artists and writers. Today, modern galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants stand side by side with old mills and barber shops on the narrow alleyways, making Buam-dong a sophisticated yet classically charming destination.

Buam-dong, located under the foot of Inwangsan Mountain behind the blue house(President House), features high hills and winding alleys.

Due to the geographical location and excellent scenery adjacent to Gyeongbok Palace, writers and artists have lived together since old days, but now restaurants and cafes are sparsely clustered between luxury housing complexes.

On the left side of the Jahamun tunnel, which supports Buam-dong below, is the Seoul Museum of Art, where you can meet Lee Joong-sup’s work of “The Bull,” and Seokpajeong, which was a villa for Heungseon Daewongun, a powerful man in the late Joseon Dynasty, with an art gallery.

Baeksasilgyegok Valley

Baeksasilgyegok Valley :
A place called Seoul’s last secret garden.

It is an oasis in the middle of the city, hiding like a lie on a mountain road behind a quiet residential area in Buam-dong.

It’s not big, but it’s clean enough for salamanders to live in.
In the middle of the valley there is a villa of Yi Hang-bok, a Joseon-era civil official known for his story of “Oseong and Haneum.”
