Interesting article about Jongno

Filed under: history — extrakorea @ 11:21 am

The Joongang Daily has an interesting piece about Jongno* and its history, with several accompanying black-and-white photographs from the old days. Check it out.

* In case you don’t know, Jongno is a major street in Seoul, and has been important for a long time.


  1. It would be nice if they’d put dates on the photos. I’m curious if the first couple scenes are pre-colonial or colonial.

    • I guess you could contact the JoongAng Daily and ask them.
