Ice Skating

DMC (Digital Media City) is a very new up-and-coming area of Seoul. A number of broadcasting companies relocated their studios to DMC recently and the place has seen tremendous growth. Its rising popularity can be attested to by its cameo appearance in the second Avengers movie. Anyways, an annual highlight that occurs at DMC is the ice-skating rink that is set up from December to February.


The Scouting Report

The ice-skating rink at DMC is an outdoor winter-only ice-skating rink. When the temperatures drop low enough---December to February---a temporary rink is set up just outside of MBC's studios. It is a very popular place that has a lot of fun energy.
