Yonsei University - Autumn

Yonsei University is also a popular film location for many Korean films and dramas including IRIS, Reply 1994 and the movie, My Sassy Girl.

Ginkgo Trees Path & Art Sculptures

On entering Yonsei University, the long straight rows of tall ginkgo trees will take your breath away.

 

These ginkgo trees are particularly spectacular in Autumn when the leaves turn golden yellow.

 

Along the ginkgo path, there are many unique and interesting art sculptures for your viewing as well.

Charming Gothic-style Buildings

One of the main highlights for visitors to this campus is the three Gothic-style buildings, namely Stimson Hall, Underwood Hall and Appenzeller Hall.

 

Standing side-by-side, the buildings, adorned with ivy vines, turned into gorgeous shades of red in autumn and a sight to behold.

Together with a beautiful garden in front of these buildings, this area has become the most popular place for taking pictures, across all seasons in Korea and a must-visit to Yonsei University.
