My quest for bridges over Han River goes on with another beautiful bridge – Seongsu Bridge (성수대교). Now I have planned to covered all the large and famous Bridges of Han River but I really have doubt about this because in every case I have to face some difficulties. Either weather (rain) or The Lights of the bridge was the issue that even to shoot this bridge I had to go twice. Now this bridge is very famous for its structure,The cantilever bridge was completed in 1979 and its total length is 1160 m which is connecting Seongsu-dong and Apgujeong-dong of Gangnam-gu, Seoul. So Very important bridge caring a lot of people everyday and of-course unlike any other Han Gang park, its very relaxing and perfect for jogging, Biking or just walking just along Han river enjoying a amazing night view of Seongsu Bridge.
There is another reason for this bridge being famous and thats a sad side. Around 07:40 hours on October 21, 1994, Seongsu Bridge connecting Seongsu-dong and Apgujeong-dong of Gangnam-gu, Seoul, collapsed. The slab (48 m) between the fifth and the sixth leg of the Bridge collapsed so 32 people died and 17 people were injured while they were on the way to office or school. But it regained its dignity and now standing steel with pride.
