By the North Gate entrance to Insadong is a miniature park, where poems by three different poets (from the 12th, 15th and 20th centuries) who all wrote in the traditional sijo style are on plaques on the wall, in Korean and English. Sijo poetry is short, simple and usually about nature and the lessons to be learnt from it.
