Olympic Hall

In 2011, the Olympic Hall was renovated as a concert hall by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation. The one-year remodeling project included an expanded stage for the 2,452 seat main hall, an exhibition room to showcase the history of Korean pop from the 1920s to the present; and a 240-seat small theater for indie musicians and new artists. It was reopened on 22 June 2011 with a celebration performance by veteran singers and K-pop groups including Super Junior, 2PM, 4Minute, 2NE1 and After School.

One of the nicest parks I've ever been to. Would love to live around here! Check out the "lonely tree" and the nice easy trail (both indicated on the maps around the park)

Really beautiful park with leafy trees and large well kept lawns 4 a family picnic. Hire bikes n ride around the lake or stop in at 1 of the many cafes or browse around the interesting sculptures.

서울에서 젤 큰 공원 주말에 가면 그늘있는 잔디밭엔 앉을데가 없다 공기도 사실 나쁘지만 이게 어디야 조금 있으면 아카시아꽃 피는데 향기맡으며 저녁산책하기 좋다

산책이나 운동하기에 좋고 야경도 볼만하지만 역시 봄이나 가을 낮에 가는게 더 좋은듯

서울 도심안에서 보기 힘든 넓은 공간입니다. 아이들과 거닐기도 좋고.. 각종 행사나 콘서트도 열리고.. 좋은 곳이에요.
