Gu (구; 區)
Sounds like → Goo
Inspired by NPR’s “Out of the Blocks”, we explore our neighborhood to meet others, listen to their stories, and share what we have found with you. We capture the stories hidden in plain sight.
Gu can mean 'borough,' 'precinct,' or 'district' in Korean (e.g. Jongno-gu). It is equivalent to a district or neighborhood in the West. Most cities in Korea are divided into gu, our gu is Seodaemun.
