 We often use Chungmuro station when we go to school.
          Have you  seen the  Chungmuro Intermedia  Playground
          when you have passed through  the station? If you saw
          the center, you might  have been curious about  it. Now
          this center   is opened  completely,  so  we  visited the
          Chungmuro Intermedia Playground.......................................ed.
         
          My name is  Kim Dongguk, a  fashionable good-looking
          student at the Dongguk University. I spend  a good deal
          of time each morning brushing and spraying my  hair to
          perfection (One never know who one might meet).
          This morning,   I was   headed up   to school,  passing
          through   a  narrow   hall  surrounded   by  mirror   at
          Chungmuro  station.  (I  always  go  through  that  hall
          unconsciously checking out my coolness in the mirror.)
          I was curious about that hall, so I looked to see what it
          was. It  was called  Chungmuro Intermedia  Playground,
          the very first  one established in  Korea. It was  opened
          last November  to let  pedestrians experience  and learn
          creative  culture  while   passing through   the  subway
          instead of  going to  the central  culture center.  I can't
          miss this kind of cool place!
         
          - Club Vitality -
          I first  visited The  Club Vitality  where  you can  read
          exotic magazines and listen to music from the juke box.
          In order to read these awesome prints, I had to enroll as
          a member (Monthly usage fee was free). As I mentioned
          at the  beginning, I  am very  sensitive to  new fashion
          trends and there were trendy  fashion magazines for me
          to read. I was as happy and  content as can be and fell
          asleep on   the worm-shaped  soft  sofa while   reading.
          What a free place. I love it!!
         
          -Video Viewing Room-
          Since I don't  make any  dough I  am always  short of
          money  to live a civilized life. This place is just for me.
          You can rent the indi-movies  that are not easy to  find
          1,000 won   and pay  500  won for  every extra   thirty
          minutes.
         
          -Vital Theatre-
          As   I   learned  about   CM   (commercial   messages)
          advertisement last  year, I  was concerned   about them.
          Fortunately,  the  Vital   Theatre offers   documentaries,
          animations, video  arts, music  videos and  CM. I  could
          watch unknown  Korean  works  in February  and this
          month Japanese works are waiting  for me. If you want
          to display your own works, you can borrow this theatre.
          The Vital Theatre  wants to communicate  with you by
          unknown works.
         
          -Visual Lab-
          When I met  my girlfriend,  she showed  me her  pretty
          edited pictures which she  took with her  sweet heart. I
          really so envied  her  I  decided to  learn about picture
          editing  in the Visual Lab. The lecture is  for beginners.
          So I could  learn about  editing in a  day. Now  I'm an
          artist. I can make  my own simple documentaries,  video
          art and so on.  You can also make  and edit your party
          pictures or something at a reasonable price in this lab.
         
          -Media Oasis-
          "Where shall we meet? Do  you know where the  Media
          Oasis is?   I'll wait  for  you  while reading   books or
          watching music videos  there." I  can take  a rest there
          freely, so I often meet my  friends at this place. I  think
          it really gives us vital power.
         
          -Flea Market-
          It was Saturday and of course I had a promise with one
          of my friends to  meet at Dae  Han Theater to  see the
          movie "8 miles." On  the way to the  theater I saw  the
          Intermedia playground crowded  with people. There  was
          flea market   sale where  cultural artists   sell their  art
          accessories.
          What do you think I  did? Yes, you are  right. I bought
          two fascinating  bracelets for  me and  my friend.  This
          place is   exciting because  I can   have my  very own
          accessories, but I want the market  to have a variety of
          materials and spacious room  for pedestrians to pass  by
          easier.
          -Conclusion-
          This spring semester has  already started. Maybe I  will
          use this  Chungmuro  Intermedia Playground  more  and
          more. Because I am a student who doesn't have enough
          money but does have a passion about something new. If
          you want to go  there with me, please  call me anytime
          except Monday. Why? Monday it's closed.
