While the ringing of the cathedral bells stop footsteps of people,

the fancy show windows captivate glances on the busy streets.

This charming place where both the sacred

and secular exist is known as Myeong-dong.

Myeongdong Cathedral is the center of Roman Catholicism in Korea

and is located in Myeongdong, a major area of Seoul.

Within the Brick Gothic style Cathedral,

the arch-shaped stained glass windows

exude an elegant and pious atmosphere.

With over 100 years of history,

this peaceful place naturally makes your head bow.

The basement level of the Myeongdong Cathedral

contains a large cultural and arts space.

In the divided space that contains

a library, a gallery, and public rooms,

you can enjoy some relaxation away from the above-ground city.

As Myeongdong is one of the busiest areas in Seoul,

it is full of attractions.

Known for being a mecca for shopping,

Myeongdong is a hotspot for

tourists looking to buy affordable cosmetics, clothing, and accessories.

As the crowds gather at nightfall,

the streets of Myeong-dong shines more brightly.

The streets are filled with delicious foods

that captivate the global tastes.

You can choose and enjoy various foods that suit your tastes.

Even the Ambassador comes to eat his favorite food called 'Dak-galbi'.

Transcending religion and time,

the Myeongdong Cathedral, which receives the love of Koreans,

and the busy streets of Myeong-dong that represent Seoul

show the two sides of the cultural melting pot

in Myeongdong that you can enjoy.
