As you enter Mokdong, a village located on the west of Seoul, the first thing you might see is the apartments, and then students with school uniforms, and lastly a bunch of trees. Since it is a government-planned village, all the roads and apartments are built very neatly and many trees are planted on every road and around all apartments. However, not many tourists visit here since there aren’t many tourist attractions or places to enjoy something special and it is more centered on education. Then why did CAH chose Mokdong for June? Despite your thinking, there are many things to enjoy and to eat here. Places to visit include the baseball stadium, SBS Broadcasting Center, department stores, Anyangcheon Stream, and so on, and CAH is going to show some of them. Mokdong apartments is range over Mokdong and Shinjeong-dong, so the locations will include Shinjeong-dong as well.

For the 100th memorial of Korean and French relations, the Park Paris was opened on the first day of July in 1987. The noticeable point is that after establishing diplomatic relations in 1886, the Seoul Park was also built in Paris. The internal facilities also show the meaning of special relationships that you can see in the Seoul Square and Paris Square, the outdoor stage, the pond, the fountains and so on. Especially in the Seoul Square, there are many Korean trees and yin-yang patterned symbols on the floor, contrasted with a French-style flower garden and French trees planted in the Paris Square. Beside the squares, on the outdoor stage, various performances are held and outdoor wedding ceremonies were also held before but not now. People now take wedding photos more than having ceremonies here. It is the best place to walk and have a rest after you eat a meal, talking with your friends or families.

Lee Jae-won Mokdong Pizza
Lee Jae-won Mokdong Pizza is a pizza restaurant opened by Lee Jae-won who posed a question, “Why isn’t there any pizza named related to Korea in Korea such as Chicago Pizza in the USA?” Therefore, all the menu names at this restaurant are named in Korean style, such as “Mokdong,” “Arirang,” and “Mugoonghwa.” The characteristic of the pizza can be found from the ingredients. The pizza is well eaten because of using Korean Imsil Cheese and New Zealand’s Fonterra cheese. Moreover, the black rice dough and hand-made tomato sauces add to its favor the best and are not that overly-stimulating. What’s more, they fix the daily sales volumes and try to coexist with other surrounding restaurants.
