Seoul: Ihwa Mural Village (이화 벽화마을), South Korea.

Ihwa Mural Village (이화 벽화마을), Seoul.

While I’m curious to know what Ihwa Mural Village looks like now, I have yet to revisit the village since the defacement of some of the village’s most famous murals. More than art being destroyed or livelihood being threatened, I think this conflict highlights the need for responsible tourism.
