Mullae-dong_ 0.1 historical timeline

Industrialization in Seoul took root at the turn of the 20th century during the Japanese Colonial occupation of the country. Mullae-dong through the late 1940's was a place of textile manufacturing and production. After this the absolving from Japanese rule in the 1950's and ensuing Korean war transformed Mullae-dong into a place of military encampment, production and support. The return to industrial output in the 1960's through the 1980's brought about steel industrial production, still in the area today, although in decline. The footprint of industry has shrunk and new development has bound tightly a limited boundary of what is now a compact area of industry combined with artist studios.
