The stream (Banpo Stream) in front of a village in Seocho-gu, Seoul, has been called Seorae Village from the past to the present. After the transfer of the French school in 1985, the area was designated as a residential area for French residents (based on 2014/40% of French), which is also known as Petit France in Seoul, and has become known as a famous place and hot place in Seoul due to the increasing number of Japanese, Korean restaurants, and coffee shops. However, according to the recent commercial rights analysis and status survey, the identity of the existing differentiated village has become increasingly ambiguous due to changes in the floating population and changes in the shopping and restaurant industries, thus establishing an identity from the perspective of new regeneration projects and integrated branding.
