The square, which gets its name from a famous local hero from the 16th century, is the largest in Korea.

Song Sang-hyeon Square consists of a Culture Madang, the Dynamic Busan Madang and a History Madang. Madang means courtyard in Korean.

As an open space for citizens, the Culture Madang has a sunken square, a lawn and café. To serve as a venue for celebrations, events and festivals, the Dynamic Busan Madang features a large lawn plaza, a stream and walking path.

To provide visitors with a chance to learn about Busan’s rich history, the History Madang includes an old map of the city, which also doubles as a floor fountain, the Forest of History and the Song Sang-hyeon Memorial Square.
