I’ve wandered through Bulgwang so, so many times. I live in the area, thus it is common for me to take photographs as I come and go, or even occasionally when I go for a brief walk. Honestly, this area is not extraordinarily exciting by any means. There is no reason for a tourist to really visit this area. The only possible reason for a traveler to come through is if they found a specific entry point, out of hundreds from various neighborhoods, to climb the mountains of Bukhansan National Park.

Despite the lack of tourism, you can still enjoy exploring, documenting, and photographing in this residential area. Below are a few of the images I captured of life in the area. You are also welcome to view my gallery, The Streets of Bulgwang.
