Number of clicks19,872   Number of reviews3   좋아요3
Busan used to be surrounded by mountains with rare plains. During the Japanese occupation, the livable flatland and reclaimed land around the original downtown were developed as Japanese territory. Meanwhile, dockworkers and outsiders from other areas who came here to seek jobs-built shacks along the mountain slopes to settle down. After the Korean War outbreak, refugees flocked to Busan and began to settle down at higher up the mountains. Mangyang-ro is a long mountainside road from Seo-gu to Busanjin-gu through Jung-gu and Dong-gu of Busan. It contains narrow and maze-like alleyways, endless steep stairs, and a dense cluster of buildings. A winding upward path leads to another winding downward path. Like its shape, the mountainside road encompasses Busan’s modern and contemporary history in conjunction with the joys and sorrows of the common people.
