Walking festival in downtown Seoul


Walkers throng a bank of Cheonggye Stream on Sept. 28 during the 2008 Hi Seoul World Walking Festival organized by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and supported by the JoongAng Ilbo and the JoongAng Daily. Around 12,000 people strolled the 10-kilometer route from Seoul Plaza through Cheonggye Stream, Mount Namsan and Sungnyemun in downtown Seoul. The walking event was held in nine cities in Korea on the day and 70 countries across the world. By Kang Jung-hyun
