The special exhibition "Sanjicheon: Walking Through Memories" is being held at the Kim Man-deok Memorial Hall until October 31st (Tuesday) to celebrate its 8th anniversary of opening.
Sanjicheon, flowing through the heart of Jeju, has historically served as a gateway for the exchange of goods, to the extent that Kim Man-deok conducted business there. It underwent channelization due to urban development in 1966, but was later restored in 2002, transforming into an urban ecological space. Throughout its existence, it has been witnessing the shifting history and essence of Jeju.

The exhibition showcases old photographs capturing the appearance of Sanjicheon and its surroundings, from Dongmun Rotary to Jeju Harbor, along with the memories of the people who lived there. Several programs will be offered, including educational programs related to the exhibition and a photo contest related to Sanjicheon, encouraging visitors' participation.
