Project Monsoon creates colorful street murals that only appear in the rain.

Monsoon season in South Korea happens annually, and it rains for as long as three weeks. I am sure all you curly-haired girls out there just spoke the words ’hell no’ out loud to yourselves, so I will have to give you another reason to visit.

Designers in South Korea have found a way to make the gloomy rainy season a little more colorful, by using hydrochromatic paint to create beautiful murals on the city streets. Project Monsoon is inspired by South Korea’s emphasis on the importance of flowing rivers, and the murals themselves depict flowing water and sea life as a way to make the rainy days a little less depressing.

Congratulations South Korea, you managed to make the rainy season a little less sucky. I’m not going to lie though, doesn’t the name ‘Project Monsoon’ seem a little geographically insensitive?
