Among the people of Busan, this park is considered to be one of the most propitious spots in the city that exudes good energy. Situated right in the middle of the city at the coordinates 35°10'4"N and 129°2'17"E, this place is believed to bring health, happiness, and wealth. and even fertility. Locals also believe that the energy of this place also affects their children to be good sons and daughters. No wonder so many locals come here to make a wish or two.

Why the coordinates? In 2001, an elementary school student was curious to know the geographic center of the city and sent the question to a SBS TV variety show called Hogisim Cheonguk (‘curiosity heaven’ in Korean) so they would find out where the exact center of the city is.

In turn, the producers of the TV show had the Urban Affairs Research Institute of Pusan National University to pinpoint the location, which turned out to be 548-12 Buam-dong, Busanjin-gu. Afterwards, a central marker stone was erected there, and the Office of Busanjin-gu created a small park around the stone. The original park was demolished in 2018 for a housing redevelopment project, and the new one was recreated in the current location.

Its symbolic character BuJung-i also has an interesting story. BuJung-i, a compound word made by combining Busan and ‘jungang’ (‘center’ in Korean), literally represents the geographic center of Busan.

It is a yellow chicken in the shape of a golden hen sitting on eggs. It is said that the energy of Geumjeongsan Mountain and that of Baegyangsan Mountain’s Azure Dragon of the East extended to the marker stone and woke up the sleeping chicken BuJung-i. It has the mysterious power to share its lucky energy and happiness with people living in every corner of Busan and reward those with a golden egg for making an earnest wish – only when it’s touched by the wish, of course.

The new marker stone (4.1 m wide, 3.3 m high) stands tall in the park. We hope you to stop by at this small park and take in all the good energy the place has to offer so that everything goes well for you.
