      Gwanghwamun Plaza in central Seoul will reopen in July, about a year and eight months after it was closed for a makeover, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said on Tuesday.

      The plaza was supposed to reopen in April, but the plan was postponed to July as construction work is expected to be complete by June.

      The total area of the face-lifted plaza will measure 40,300 sq.m, about 2.1 times larger than before, allowing more space for pedestrians along with a garden with trees and a fountain.

      The plaza will also display some artifacts from the Chosun Dynasty that were excavated from the site during construction.
