Why Gwanghwamun Square?

The Regather Hangul experiential exhibition needs a space that can create vibrant vibes because its goal is to provide social interactions through experiential Hangul patchwork. I believe Gwanghwamun Square is the ideal place for this purpose.


Historically and culturally, a square often refers to a public open space found at the heart of a city or town, functioning as a central point for community gatherings, commerce and social interactions. It underscores the importance of communal spaces in fostering social cohesion and cultural expression throughout various civilisations.


Similarly, Gwanghwamun Square, located in the heart of Seoul, South Korea, is a significant cultural and historical space. Named after Gwanghwamun, the main gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace, the square serves as a symbol of the nation's rich heritage and dynamic history. Historically, it has been a focal point for major events, including protests, celebrations, and national ceremonies. Additionally it is a vibrant public area that embodies the resilience and spirit of the Korean people, reflecting their journey through history and their aspirations for the future.


These reasons make Gwanghwamun Square an ideal location for the Regather Hangul experiential exhibition.

(Short Film) Their Sad Voice

[Their Sad Voice] is a short film with sorrow of separated families and hope of meeting each other throughout visual redesign.

(Short Film) The day of having become stain

[The day of having become stain] is a short film with audio and three films[Korean war, Taking refuge, Meeting each other] on one screen on the same time.

Which positive impact will the solution have on society and beyond its core target group?

By facilitating communication between separated families, Regather Hangul helps to heal emotional wounds that have been strained for decades and recover family bonds which are fundamental to societal well-being. Additionally, it serves as one of cultural preservation methods, educating users about the linguistic and cultural nuances of both, North and South Korea. Furthermore, the project can raise awareness globally about the human impact of political divisions, encouraging support for initiatives that promote peace and unity.
