KANGKANGEE Arts Village
KANGKANGEE Arts Village, which is a sock-shaped village, is at the opposite side of Jagalchi Market, Yeongdo Bridge, and Namhang Bridge. There is a lighters wharf, which is full of ships, and there are nearly 10 shipyards where ships are actively arriving and departing. Hence, it shows the uniqueness of Busan, as a capital of marine culture, which originated and flourished because of its harbor. Daepyeong-dong is the birthplace of the modern shipbuilding industry, in which “Tanaka Shipyard”, the first modern shipyard in the late 19th century, was founded. Since then, it has been widely known for shipbuilding and ship-repairing, so much so that people have said, “There is no ship that cannot be repaired in Daepyeong-dong.” Still, dozens of ship repair yards and nearly 200 small industrial companies and vessel part companies occupy most of the space in the village, embodying the history of the shipbuilding industry.
