My Dear Fellow Citizens:

major photo I am very glad to welcome you to the Gwangjin-gu website.
Gwangjin-gu is situated in the eastern part of Seoul, the capital of Korea, and is an important base of transportation connecting all parts of the country via the East Seoul Terminal and by subway lines 2, 5 and 7.
Thanks to Achasan Mt., the Seoul Children's Grand Park and Han River Park, Gwangjin-gu provides green fields and comfortable areas of relaxation for people and families. Home to prestigious universities, Gwangjin is full of youth and vitality all the year round while traditional markets, malls, department stores, movie theaters and concert halls add convenience to life here.

As the 5th elected Mayor of Gwangjin, I will devote myself to bring to reality a vision to build a hopeful Gwangjin, interacting with our citizens for my entire term, and doing my best to build a gracious city achieving a balance among economy, welfare, education and environment based on our rich natural resources and privileged conditions.
I hope this website will be able to provide an open stage to communicate with people from around the world and to share a bond of mutual understanding and warm heartedness.
Thank you for visiting this website and I look forward to seeing you soon in Gwangjin, a lively, yet relaxing city. On behalf of the 400,000 citizens of Gwangjin, I wish you good luck and great health.
Thank you.
