In order to raise the literary culture of the school members and the citizens of Seoul, Hanyang University Museum will run the Hanyang Museum Academy nine times this year, every Thursday at 2:00 pm from April 12 to June 7.

The first Hanyang Museum Academy of the 1st semester of 2018 is being held with the theme of "Seoulite, how much do you know about Seoul? – reading Seoul through architecture." It starts with the question of how much we know about Seoul, and then guides visitors to understand the city of Seoul through architecture.

The Hanyang Museum Academy special lectures will be featured as follows: Prof. Seo Hyun of the Department of Architecture (April 12), Chung Boot-Sem, curatorial researcher in Seoul (April 19), Kim So-Yeon, writer (author of Architects of Old Seoul) (April 26), Yeo Hwan-jin, CEO of Tribico (May 3), Prof. Han Dong-soo of the Department of Architecture (May 10), Research Prof. Jeon Woo-yong of the East Asian Culture Research Institute (May 17), Hwang Doo-jin, head of an architectural firm (May 24), and Prof. An Gi-hyun of the Department of Architecture (May 31).

In these lectures, you will see how the city of Seoul was formed during the modern era, learn how the people's dreams and desires changed Seoul, and then chase the story of the architects who made Seoul as we know it today. Additionally, visitors will take a walk along the streets of Myeong-dong while hearing its stories being told by Yeo Hwan-jin, the CEO of Tribico and a collector of modern postcards.

Applications for registration can be completed on the homepage of Hanyang University Museum (, and admission is free. For detailed inquiries, please contact the Hanyang Museum (02-2220-1394).
