A photo exhibition featuring the four-decade process of Seoul, the capital city of the Republic of Korea (RoK), to become a megacity as present is underway in Hanoi.

Jointly organized by the Korean Cultural Centre in Vietnam and the Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange, the exhibition aims to introduce the RoK photography.

On display are 62 works showing diverse and unique perspectives of many generations of photographers on conflicts between tradition and modernity, which led to the destruction and building of Seoul city.

The event is running from October 1-12 at the Temple of Literature.

A similar exhibition is taking place at the Korean Cultural Centre in Hanoi from October 1- 30.
