Unlikely art: climbing the walls

Walking in one of Seoul's newer neighborhoods south of the Han River, this unlikely art caught my eye: a sculpture of backpack-toting gorilla climbing up an apartment building.
The Gangnam district of Seoul has splashes of whimsy among the new glass-and-steel high-rises. Rice paddies just a couple of decades ago, this area has become one of the trendiest areas of South Korea's capital.
