Outdoor Areas


Seoul Arts Center
Fresh air and bird chirps will clear out your soul in the Outdoor Areas, which never stop being crowded early in the morning with people doing exercises and filling up their containers with mineral water from Mt. Woomyun. The serene beauty of Woomyun Pond was the backdrop for the five representative Korean narrative folk song plays. The Music Square located between the Music House and the Seoul Calligraphy Art Museum was packed with over 10,000 people during the summer movie festival. The Fine Arts Square well known as the venue for sculpture shows and avant-garde performances has been successful in shaping its distinctive image. Outdoor Areas are designed as public spaces for people of all ages and from all walks of life for their free enjoyment irrespective of performances and exhibitions. Being the connection to the indoor venues, they are mostly located between buildings in an attempt to maximize the natural usage of space. Unique individual themes of each space are to create harmony as a single vast outdoor stage.
