On the 10th anniversary of the Seoul Lantern Festival 2018, a 17-day festival will take place at Cheonggyecheon Stream (1.2km between Cheonggye Plaza and Supyo Bridge). The Seoul Lantern Festival 2018 will feature the Cheonggyecheon area in Seoul under the slogan ‘Seoul Dream, Flowing Light’ to reflect on the past and reflect the present.
You can travel through the light as if you are reenacting a long history and culture with lanterns. Artworks that seem to have been moved to the present day by honoring the culture and customs of various times can be seen walking around Cheonggyecheon Stream in downtown Seoul.
