Playgroundesque cultural complex opens
Busan Metropolitan City is continuously taking steps toward becoming a "15-Minute City," where anyone can easily access housing, education, shopping and other public facilities. As part of these efforts, cultural complexes for children, called "Deullak Nallak," are being developed so children and their parents can spend time together. The Deullak Nallak is a new-concept playground that links culture, the latest technologies, play, reading, digital experiences and more.
Futuristic open libraries give kids a new way to play.
The first complex recently opened in the lobby of City Hall with a "creativity space" arranged with 2,000 books on circular bookshelves. Another area, the "imagination space," is composed of digital experiences such as a media art exhibition hall, a 3D fairy tale experience hall, an LED media wall and a VR space. The "learning space" provides interactive play and learning with native English speaking teachers. The media art exhibition hall, includes an 18 meter immersive digital experience space that displays impressionist pain-tings and media by popular artists.
Busan plans to create 500 of these Deullak Nallaks by 2030 so children can benefit from this initiative. They are slated to operate from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends and close on national holidays.
How to get to the Deullak Nallak in City Hall: City Hall Station (metro line 1), exit 3. Enter City Hall, the entrance is on the right side of the lobby.
