Skyscrapers create an impressive skyline for modern-day Seoul. It’s hard to imagine the city without the present landscape. What did Seoul look like back in the 1930s or in the 50s-60s when the nation was savaged by the Japanese colonial government (1910-45) and the Korean War (1950-53)?
Two exhibitions are being held to highlight the past and the old version of Seoul with special historic photographs and various installations. Held at the Seoul Museum of History, “Seoul, To Rise Again” will continue through April 24 while the Cheong Gye Cheon Museum is presenting “Old Seoul Through Foreign Eyes” through June 26.
