Follow the penguin-shaped signage and enter the narrow street behind Yangnim-dong Community Service Center. You will find a village from the 1970s and ’80s being transformed into an outdoor exhibition space. The “Penguin Village” was named after the way the elderly with knee pain walked somewhat like penguins. Villagers began to clean up burned down and abandoned houses there and brought things to exhibit on the walls. Someone wrote on the wall, “Let’s be thankful that we lived in those days.” Penguin Tavern, in the middle of the village, is a chat room for residents. The room, though small, is filled with all kinds of objects from the residents. In front of the Craft Studio, residents post village newsletters.
