Going underground


Park Chul, foreground, president of Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, guides visitors around his school’s history memorial hall yesterday, after the university opened an underground campus beneath its main campus in Dongdaemun, eastern Seoul.

The newly opened hall is located within the underground campus.

Recently, several universities, including Korea, Ewha Womans and Sogang, have constructed underground campuses in a bid to alleviate space problems.
