In particular, PM Lee said the “Gyeongui Line Forest Park” and “Seoullo 7017” show how urban space can be beautifully regenerated for citizens. “Seoul was reborn as a walking path instead of demolishing an overpass in front of Seoul Station,” Prime Minister Lee said. “Now, Seoulites can walk over the city just like the High Line in New York.”
