Dokseodang Children’s Park [독서당어린이공원] is a playground inside U.N. Village [유엔빌리지], located along UN Village-gil [유엔빌리지길] in Seoul’s neighborhood Hannam [Hannam-dong/한남동] in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu/용산구]. Hyosung Village [효성빌리지] and La Terrasse Hannam [라테라스한남] are also located within this village.

U.N. Village [유엔빌리지] is considered as one of South Korea’s most affluent and exclusive neighborhoods. Private homes of celebrities, chaebols and politicians stand alongside embassies in this gated compound, of which starting prices for homes are located at KRW3 billion (US$2.65 million) as stated by Jennifer Wang in 2017. Not only does it have a splendid view of the Han River and Dongho Bridge [동호대교], its placement in feng shui (mountains behind and a river in front) makes it a desirable location.
This neighborhood is also known for being the central theme of EXO member BaekHyun’s 2019 song UN Village.
