When It Rains In Seoul These Beautiful Murals Appear On The Roads

Rain is necessary for the Planet to flourish and without it all of us would die of dehydration. Regardless of its importance, a rainy day can sometimes feel like nothing more than a disturbance. When it rains you have to dress appropriately, remember your umbrella and plan for extra traffic. If you happen to live in Seoul, South Korea the rain is going to be a lot less disappointing this year, as it is scheduled to bring about some incredible surprises.

A group of South Korean designers got together with PANTONE to fight back against rainy day blues, creating beautiful street murals that only appear when it rains. The artwork is titled "Project Monsoon," and is designed to bring about some cheer during the annual monsoon season when it rains nonstop for around 3 weeks.

The murals were created with special hydrochromatic paint that becomes vibrantly visible when wet but completely disappear when dry. All of the streets are coated in bright murals that reflect the local culture. Many of the murals include turtle, fish and other sea creatures, highlighting the "the importance of the flow of the river."

The following images were released as a preview of the project to get locals excited about the upcoming rain, if only to see the beautiful works of art already painted but not yet visible on the streets of Seoul.

  1. why, when I try to click on any of the feature videos on the left, does a new tab flash on then immediately disappear? it must take all of one second, max - but clicking on the side images is ineffective - or something's preventing their running....
