Different Feelings, Neighborhoods in Incheon

Songwoldong Donghwa Village is literally “donghwa,” a fairy-tales town. The whole town is full of themes from fairy-tales. A big rainbow-board reads “Songwoldong Donghwa Village” welcomes visitors at the entrance. Take the left-side alley, where the village begins. Numerous main characters in fairy tales are waiting you in murals, sculptures, and photo zones. While walking through the village recalling the titles, main characters, and story-lines, visitors are fascinated by the village. It is natural for you lost the track of time.



There are photo zones here and there, but it is safe to say that the whole village is a big photo zone. Cute figures in various colors fill the town.
Visitors usually return to their childhoods by the characters in fairy tales
The Wizard of OZ, Little Red Riding Hood, the Snow White, Cinderella, the Sleeping Beauty, Frog Prince, Arabian Night, Byeoljubujeon – a tale of rabbit and turtle, an Old Man with a Lump, the Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and more. One day is not long enough, if you want to take pictures with all the main characters.




They began to call the town Songwoldong, where they could see the moon through thick pine-tree woods. Since the opening of Incheon Port in 1883, many foreigners started to reside. The town became a rich village. Yet over the last few decades, the young left the town. Empty houses are neglected and the village lost its energy. The community pushed forward urban regeneration projects, which led to the birth of Donghwa village in 2014.




Going Back to the childhood in the town would make you excited in spite of yourself.
