  • The Seoul city government said Monday it has decided to adopt the design of hanok, or traditional Korean houses, for high-tech bus stops in the capital.
  • The design, titled “Beauty of Korea,” centers on adopting the signature curves of hanok for the city’s “smart shelter” bus stops.
  • Greenery will be planted in place of middle-of-the-road guard rails to form a city garden-like atmosphere at the new bus stops, while free Wi-Fi services, wireless mobile phone chargers and air purifiers will be offered to users.
