There is a plaza in front of the building where you should get your photo moment when in Seoul. There were people setting up booths and stage for some event.

It’s worth taking a detour to walk past the new City Hall. Which stands imposingly behind the old much smaller city hall. The architecture is extremely impressive and the curves are spectacular! Not much to do there apart from admire the building!
