Seoul’s underground railway system is full of fun surprises. When you turn down one of the labyrinthine corridors or hop off a train, you never know just who or what you’ll find.
One rainy day at the Anguk subway station, I stumbled upon this colorful wall of art tiles. Decorated by local students, each tile contains intricate sketches and tiny messages for the reading pleasure of Seoul’s commuters.
Other surprises include talented musicians or old women selling traditional homemade snacks for a pittance. Let the possibility of surprise keep your spirits up during Seoul’s busy rush hour.
