Recently, Watta TV explored the Yangnim History and Culture Village, also known as “Penguin Village” in Yangrim-dong, Gwangju — which is also the home of BTS J-Hope‘s mural!
It’s a unique and quirky looking village that’s decorated with many interesting features, including murals in Jeolla dialect.
Sponsored by J-Hope fansite Adonis, the murals of J-Hope spread across multiple walls.
The birthday project created a place to honor J-Hope in his home city of Gwangju while also providing fans with a cool experience.
