Poetry in Motion

Poetry started appearing in Korean subways a few years ago. But such poems were poorly presented on back walls where they drew little attention.

Recently the glass doors between the platform and the subway car are adorned at some stations with poetry. The poems are there where every commuter will read them, often accompanied by classical music these days. A very effective campaign to transform Korean culture.

The glass doors are an added safety measure that has been implemented over the last year.
