[The Night of Seoul #1] Healing the Weary, Yanghwadaegyo Bridge

At that time, in my younger days

I never knew anything

about the feeling of crossing that bridge

I asked ‘Where are you?’ ‘Where you at?’

and my father was always

at Yanghwa bridge, Yanghwa bridge,

now I’m standing tall on this bridge,

on this bridge

 


Zion.T, <Yanghwa Bridge>



Seoul flows to Hangang River.

The countless stories made by the people of Seoul can’t hide from the Hangang River.

There is a song that absorbed these stories and became symbolic of this bridge, 

so that everyone thinks of the song & artist first, rather than this bridge.


That song is <Yanghwa Bridge> sung by Zion.T.



The song <Yanghwa Bridge> is fascinating enough due to Zion.T’s unique voice and soothing melody, 

but people were caught up by the common phrase, “Let’s be happy, and don’t be sick”.


Furthermore, the calm and emotional story wrapped inside Yanghwadaegyo Bridge touched the hearts of people 

who felt the same while crossing any bridge over Hangang River, not just Yanghwadaegyo Bridge.





It is a song about the thoughts and feelings of his memories when he was young. 

When he was a kid, his father used to look at the setting sun at the Hangang River after a hard day, 

and now he is crossing the same bridge to go to work just like his father, feeling the same.


The Hangang River not only holds the city’s history, but also the story of every family in Seoul.





Yanghwadaegyo Bridge connects Hapjeong-dong and Yangpyeong-dong 

and is not far from Hapjeong Station, so it is relatively easily accessible.



 


Perhaps, thanks to the song’s effect, many people delved into their own emotions 

when walking on the Yanghwadaegyo Bridge. In fact, Yanghwadaegyo Bridge is near Seonyudo, 

so it is a good place for a stroll.


The bridge itself is actually a battleground in the daily life of salary men, 

but in the spring, it is an excellent promenade with tulip trails located at the southern end.


Yanghwa Hangang Park is also famous as a good dating path.


 


It is good to see the night view of Seoul while walking on Yanghwadaegyo Bridge, 

and it is also good to see Yanghwadaegyo Bridge and the night sky from Seonyudo.


If you walk inside Seonyudo Park, you will feel as if you are traveling far away, 

so it is a perfect place for a picnic at any time in any season.
