Planning a vacation for winter in Seoul? If you’re a K-drama fan, then you’re in luck —apart from visiting shooting locations of your favorite show, we’re adding a new must-do for you in your list!


South Korean actor Ryu Jun-yeol, best known for his breakout stint in Reply 1988, is currently holding his solo photo exhibition in Seoul. Dubbed “A Wind Runs Through It And Other Stories,” the title was inspired by the movie A River Runs Through It, with the showcase displaying the actor and photographer’s brief stay in California back in 2019.

Taking two floors of exhibition space in KT&G Sangsangmadang in Hongdae, the photo exhibition offers a peek of the artist’s journey to find himself —not just as the actor Ryu Jun-yeol. Every shot presents different moments caught in film, expressing stories of the seemingly mundane but meaningful encounters, alive in hues and aching to tell a tale.


With the images described as “still but tell an endless story,” there’s something moving as a viewer of his work that you can only feel as you take a walk throughout the exhibition. “The still photo actually flows somewhere. I try to figure out where and how it flows but end up leaving it as it is,” he wrote in his author’s note.

Entrance to the exhibition is free and will run until January 21 next year. Open everyday except Mondays, you may also purchase merchandise on-site, with tote bags, photo prints, and more available. On the third floor entrance of the building, there’s also a coffee shop where you can hangout and try out drinks after touring the exhibit space on the fourth and fifth floors. Another tip: There are slot reservations online, but walk-ins are also welcome —we went at night and were able to get in without a problem! 



Ryu Jun-yeol mounted his first-ever art showcase back in 2020 at the Hyundai Card Design Library, and has since presented his artworks in other galleries in his home country. In June, he made a brief visit to the Philippines for a charitable affair for Compassion International.
