It has been a hectic month. Time flies so quickly that it is hard to believe we’re now in the last week of November. We left a month to 2015 to be exact! November is usually my favourite month as it is full of birthdays, celebrations, beautiful colour of autumn, and best of all the cooling weather be it at home or Korea. As the orange and yellow leaves fall, autumn has succeeded, and winter reigns.
Recently I wrote about the new design hub in South Korea, the DDP (click here to read) and if you are interested to pay a visit to the peculiar but somewhat elegant building, please do not miss this beautiful LED flower garden at the rooftop of the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP).
The rooftop of DDP is now filled up with a huge patch of flowers that shine beautifully in the dark. It has been the HOT place to check out in town for the past month. 25,550 stalks of flowers lighting up the rooftop are breathtaking. No kidding, you’ll know the reason why this place has captured the city of Seoul if you come down here personally.
This romantic rooftop flower garden was build for an OMEGA event when they launch their De Ville Prestige Butterfly wristwatches earlier which Nichole Kidman made a personal appearance down here to the garden.
So here’s how it look like when you’re in the middle of the garden. I heard the garden looks equally beautiful in the day time as well. Anyone has been to the garden in the day yet? Do let me know how does it look like.
Met the Youtuber GoGarr as he was having fun in his Glowy Zoey LED stick figure costumes with a group of friends on the same day of my visit.
I am not too sure about the end date of the exhibition, my guess is they might hold it until the end of the year? So hurry up if you are visiting Seoul this year! Admission is free! Just come directly onto the rooftop of the Dongdaemun Design Plaza exhibition hall and you’ll be able to see the beautiful flowers.
Update on 9th January 2015:
I am back to the DDP today. The 25,000 stalks of LED roses are still there on the rooftop, looking magnificent as it looked like at night. I am pretty amazed, as the day and night at this flower garden look so different yet equally bewildering. I heard they are now back on the rooftop of DDP. Please check below for exhibition information.
