Title of the Wayspot: 벽화

Location: 36.334802,127.3932

City: Daejeon

Reason: The location where this Waypot was submitted does not have a mural identical to the one in this Wayspot photo. There are several mural streets around, but the same location as the background for this Wayspot photo has not been found. There is no mural that are exactly same as the mural in Wayspot photo, too.

As you can see from the placement of other Wayspots around this Wayspot, this Wayspot has been deliberately submitted to current location. Other Wayspots around this Wayspot have the same submitter, too.
