Sewoon Shopping Mall is a shopping area located between Jongno 3-ga and Toegyero 3-ga, which was the modernization icon of the city in the 1960s. The shopping area is well known for selling electronics. But recently, the Seoul metropolitan government began demolishing its buildings, starting with Hyundai Arcade, with the intention of building tree-covered plazas in their place.
The area around Sewoon shopping centre will be reconstructed to constitute central Seoul. Lots of old aged buildings in the neighborhood harmonize with each other spontaneously. I will visit and sketch around the worn-out buildings frequently before demolition is accelerated
