When Seoul National University moved from this area in 1975, Marronnier Park was created on what had been the university’s campus. Surrounded by other colleges, the park became a cultural and arts center for students. There are outdoor performances and dozens of small movie theaters.

Outdoor performance stages and playing grounds located on the road plaza in front of the Korean Culture and Arts Foundation attract the young generation for outdoor concerts, poem recitations, plays and the like.

Major passage areas are Myeongnyun-dong, Yeonji-dong, Hyoje-dong, Ihwa-dong, Dongsung-dong and Yeongeon-dong in Jongno-gu. Daehangno is connected to Changgyeonggungno, Dongsomunno and Jongno, and a convenient place with Hyehwa station of the subway line No 4 and Jongno 5-ga station of Seoul Subway Line 4.

Cultural art organizations such as the Artistic and Cultural Foundation of Korea, the Korean Culture and Arts Foundation, Dongsoong Art Gallery, Art Hall, Samtoh’s Blue Bird Theater, Daehangno Theater, Marronnier’s Small Theater and Grand Theater of the Literary Hall, including educational institutes such as the Attached Elementary School and Middle School of the College of Education, Seoul National University, Korea National Open University and Hyoje Elementary School, and public institutions such as Hyoje Tax Office, Korea International Cooperation Agency, National Institute for International Education Development, Jungbu District Office of Education and Hyehwa Telephone Office, are all located in this area.
