Yangnim-dong Penguin Village Craft Street is a narrow alleyway on which a penguin-shaped signpost is located behind the Yangrim-dong Community Center, where the village was transformed into an exhibition hall in the 70s and 80s. It was named because the elderly with uncomfortable knees walked like penguins.

It is located in the area where Western items and ideas first entered Gwangju over 100 years ago. As such, the neighborhood has a unique collection of Western architecture mixed with traditional hanok houses. Some areas have been decorated with murals and outdoor exhibitions to promote art and tourism, helping the elderly locals to make a living.
