“Until yesterday, I was scared to go up or down the Hobakgol stairs. Now that I see these pretty flowers and ducks along the stream, I want to go and play again and again.” (Lee Seong-hyeon, age 12)
 
On the 8th, Samsung Everland’s fashion division announced that 57 new employees hired this year had volunteered for a neighborhood mural painting party at Hobakgol in Hongeun 1-dong, Seodaemun-gu on April 7th.
 
A total of 65 people participated in this special volunteer event, including 57 new employees of Samsung Everland’s fashion division hired this year along with employees and related participants of the Seoul Design Center.
 
Volunteers painted a mural along a 50-meter section featuring people enjoying the beauty of a peaceful forest, thus presenting the feeling of a friendly village throughout the year. They also repaired cracks and other damage to the wall as well.
 
Mr Kim Dong-hwa, Head of the New Culture Team of Samsung Everland’s fashion division, said, “The mural contains the hopes and dreams the volunteers have for the children of the Hongeun-dong area to grow into warmhearted and cheerful people. Capitalizing on our strengths as a fashion company, we will a gallery of murals about love and happiness in neighboring towns.”
 
Meanwhile, this is the second neighborhood mural painting party sponsored by Samsung Everland’s fashion division, following the first one organized in October last year to spruce up the public park area of Hongeun 1-dong, Seodaemun-gu, where the neighborhood had declined and lacked improvement efforts.
