Amazing things happen in Seoul, South Korea when it rains
Friday, November 6, 2015, 6:47 PM - During monsoon season in Seoul, South Korea, rain can last for as long as three weeks, leaving empty and sending people indoors. Paint manufacturer Pantone has set out to change that by partnering with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to create 'Project Monsoon.'
For the project, artists plan to paint beautiful murals on the street with hydrochromic paint, a formula that's only visible when it gets wet.
The artists involved say they want to "fill the streets with colour and life" while giving people something to look forward to during monsoon season.
Seoul is a city that experiences heavy rainfall, with an annual precipitation average of about 1373 mm. The bulk of that falls in July and August.
The images below were released by Pantone as a 'teaser', indicating what the streets of Seoul will look like come monsoon season.
