Hwajeon-dong Mural Village [화전동벽화마을]
This is where Do Hyun-sook’s (Seo Ju-hee) house is located in Hide and Seek (숨바꼭질) (MBC, 2018). She stays here with her 3 daughters, including Ha Yeon-joo (Uhm Hyun-kyung). Cha Eun-hyuk (Song Chang-eui) also stayed here while he was still together with Yeon-joo.
Hwajeon-dong Mural Village [화전동벽화마을] spans a length of 4km, with 8 mural streets of various themes spread out around the area. Originally an undeveloped area in Goyang city due to limits in regional development, Hwajeon (previously named as such because of its many flowers — 花田洞) was given new life after residents took on this special mural project to spruce up the alleys. The mural village is primarily located in Goyang’s neighborhood Hwajeon [Hwajeon-dong/화전동] in the Deokyang District [Deokyang-gu/덕양구]. It is about a 10 min walk to Hwajeon 119 Safety Center [화전119안전센터].
Note, however, that Hyun-sook’s house is located in Deokeun-dong [덕은동], as part of the mural village’s extension in Dalmaji-gil [달맞이길]. The mural outside the house reads ‘덕은마을 달빛이야기’ (Deokeun Village Moonlight Story).
Please note that we marked the beginning of the street Jungang-ro 54beon-gil [중앙로54번길] as the starting point to enter this mural village. But there are several other entry points to discovering the murals here as the village (and its murals) is very spread out.
