Concrete!
Pillars!
Really oddly angled floors!
Sewers running in side trenches!
More pillars!
Deep Freezer Flap Curtains!
'Fake' river outlets!
Many ceiling grilles!
Map Plaques!

Snaps n i did 12 Seoul drains months back, walking close to 30kms underground over 5 days. Never once saw a single brick. We ran a loud Bluetooth speaker the entire time, guzzling energy drinks, dodging homeless folks, parting the flaps, n generally fucking about. Some of Seouls drains are enormous.

In no particular order a few photos of the bigger ones.
Eastern sidewalk, Ukcheon River Tunnel (The Host's Drain)

Brief Concrete flooring in the centre of Ukcheon, its mostly bare earth with rocks and pools.

Western Sidewalk of Ukcheon.

Side sewer overflow chamber in the Ukcheon River Tunnel.

Large side sewer in the Ukcheon... I didnt bother with sewers while in Seoul, simply cos they seemed less interesting and were a slow death to traverse due to bullshit slippery concrete floors.

Upper Ukcheon, bout 4kms in.

'Fake River Water' blasting out behind the freezer curtains, outfall of Seongbuk.

Outfall of the Danghyeon River. The rocks in the middle hide a pump that bubbles up clean water for the river park downstream, the curtains to the left are another side tunnel.

Pillers up the arse, Danghyeon River.

We couldnt ascertain this massive drains real title... The lights made it great fun, but we didnt follow it much further than a km as there appeared to be works going on upstream.

Good report, bit surprised to see the sewage flowing openly in the side channels and that other tunnel (looks like grey water?). I mean, even in broken britain at least they make an effort to put them inside a pipe:( Bit surprised, thought they would have some high tech seperation of sewage and river water over there....is there much runoff in the river?
