Mark your park in Seoul

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Aside from cos­metic fads, cheesy food and catchy tunes, South Korea has also been hard at work on its flour­ish­ing art scene. At the heart of the buzz is Seoul, a bustling hub of cre­ative spa­ces and gal­leries. If you’re plan­ning on do­ing the rounds, don’t miss Gallery Hyundai (14 Sam­cheong-ro, Jonno-gu, Seoul), the city’s old­est gallery, and

Gallery Fac­tory (Ja­hamunro 10 gil 15, Jongno-gu, Seoul), a hip hub for up-and-com­ing artists. Take your out­door art hunt a step fur­ther at

Anyang Art Park (131 Ye­sul­go­ng­won-ro, Manangu, Anyang-si, Gyeonggi-do), lo­cated a quick bus ride south of Seoul. Wacky sculp­tures hide in the nooks and cran­nies of the forested hill—think grotesque sculp­tures of an­i­mals with ex­tra feet and roses for heads, or a space en­closed by plas­tic beer boxes that glow in flu­o­res­cent hues as the sun­light peeps through.
