Into the arms of the people...
We begin in Yongsan...

Cheong Wa Dae, the previous location of the Office of the President, has been a symbol of authoritarianism and imperial presidential culture that continued from the official residence of the Governor-General of Joseon and Gyeongmudae.

The Yoon Suk Yeol Government will fulfill our promise for more open communication with the people.

The new Office of the President will become a place for communication where the people can watch the President work while strolling through Yongsan Park.

Cheong Wa Dae, which covers an area three times the size of the White House grounds, will be fully returned to the people as a historical and cultural space that connects our past and the future.

Korea begins anew here in Yongsan.
