Anguk Station (Exit 6) Seoul
Insa-dong (Mary's Alley)
Leaving Anguk Station at exit-6 and you will notice a long wall of painted tiles & poems by some 168 artists. It provides a running narrative of individual admiration and yearning for Insa-dong. Unlike Myeong-dong which is vibrant & crowded, Insa-dong is more about arts and traditions. Here the pace is slower and occasionally where stillness lay. Food & beverage scene in this area is an experience to behold. Ikseon-dong Hanok Village nearby is also worth exploring for food lovers.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
