Seoul Dragon City’s main symbol is a dragon, an imaginary creature from Korean mythology. The mythology states that a 500-year-old snake turns into the basic form of dragon ‘Imugi,’ in other words the lesser dragon, and it finally becomes a full-fledged dragon after the ‘Imugi’ stays inside water for another 500 years. And then with the mythical Cintamani, which has the abilities of omnipotence and creation at will, the full-fledged dragon ascends into the heaven.

Dragon Hill

With a name derived from the characters for “Dragon Hill,” the Yongsan region has long been thought to possess the power of dragons. Unlike the creatures of destruction from Western lore, local legend says dragons are benevolent creatures that bestow fortune upon those they meet.
