Photographer's Note

Cheonggyecheon is an 11 km long modern stream that runs through downtown Seoul. Created as part of an urban renewal project, Cheonggyecheon is a restoration of the stream that was once there before during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The stream was covered with an elevated highway after the Korean War (1950-1953), as part of the country's post-war economic development. Then in 2003, the elevated highway was removed to restore the stream to its present form today. The stream starts from Cheonggye Plaza, a popular cultural arts venue, and passes under a total of 22 bridges before flowing into the Hangang (River), with many attractions along its length

What you see in this shot is Mojeongyo is an arch bridge illustrating the traditional Daecheong (main floored room) style. In old times, it was referred to as the 'Mojeon' that 'Gwajeon,' a fruit street, was paddling along. Therefore, the name of this bridge originated on this idea, since the bridge was located nearby that Mojeon.

The rainbow lights is a way to beautify this stream of river where couples, friends and etc can stroll and even sit here for a long chat

Don't worry, there is no unpleasant smell from this river.
