Welcome to my Dong!

Join me on an exciting journey as I embark on an exploration of all 467 neighborhoods in Seoul, South Korea. I’ll be filming my adventures and uncovering the unique identities of each district, slowly piecing together the puzzle of this vibrant city through my own eyes.

In Korean, “dong” (동) is a word that means “neighborhood” or “district,” hence the project title ‘Welcome to my Dong.’
