Introduction
Founded in 1926, Seoul City Hall is a Renaissance-style stone building. Seoul Plaza in front of City Hall is a historic site where the 1919 (Samil) Independence Movement and the pro-democracy movement in June 1987 were held. It is also a well-known place where tens of thousands of Korean soccer fans came to cheer at during the 2002 World Cup Games.

This oval grass square in front of Seoul City Hall, re-established in 2004, is used as a place to hold various events and cultural festivals like “Hi! Seoul Festival”, and is enjoyed by many Seoulites as a place to rest. As one of attractions of Seoul Plaza, the Floor Water Fountain, which looks like a normal sidewalk that spurts up water very high from the floor holes when you walk across it. The 48 floor lights along the grass square and Fala- a round type outer wall clock- are another attractive features of the Square.

The Fala, in particular, is designed to ring the Boshingak Belfry sound at high noon everyday. The Floor Water Fountain presents a grand sight with 35 underwater lights.
