The moon I looked up at tonight looks so sad
You live along with a lonely, empty heart like me
<The Moon of Seoul>, Kim Gun Mo
The song <The Moon of Seoul>, sung with Kim Gun Mo's distinctive clear and jazzy voice, is especially suitable for night walks.
Not only because of the title, but also because the first line, “The moon I looked up at tonight~,” makes you look up to the sky.
There is space where you can look at the moon while listening to this song filled with loneliness.
There’s a building that you can see while walking around Ttuksum Park.
The “Seoul Thinking Maru”.
This is a shelter and library that allows citizens to freely think any thoughts they wish.
The name 'Seoul Thinking Maru'- Maru means Floor- means a space where anyone can come in and look at the Hangang River to clear their dizzy head and fill it with new ideas.
There is no specific entrance to the Seoul Thinking Maru.
If you walk from exit 3 of Ttukseom Park Station, you will arrive in about 5 minutes. You can get there by following the path you like, from elevator to the stairs.
In addition, there is no entrance fee, allowing convenient free access.
The ground floor is a cultural complex where you can relax and look at the whole of the landscape. The most popular space inside is the Observation Deck.
There are low sofas to let you sit back, straighten your legs, and watch the Hangang River and the moon in the night sky.
‘The Bookshelf of 10 Million Citizens’ is also interesting.
As the name suggests, it is a space where the reading list is created through the participation of citizens. Books listed through the internet become books shared by 10 million citizens.
These types of books vary from novels, fairy tales, and self-development, to professional books, depending on your taste.
The second floor is where performances, lectures, and events are held, and the third floor, which has a paid rental space, is like a conference room, with simple business facilities such as a refrigerator and a shared printer.
Is it because there are many books and windows? Seoul Thinking Maru, created as a cultural complex, has many more things than you think, but remains a comfortable place for you to let go of your mind for a while without doing anything in particular.
'Comma' is more important here, in Seoul Thinking Maru.
Especially if you are living ‘along with an empty heart’.
