The entirety of this alley was the most underdeveloped area in Jeju-si, and while other regions, such as Ildo 2(i)-dong, underwent a great deal of change as a result of development, this area remains the same as ever. In 2008, this alley became the focus of the Garden of Memories and Dumaengi Alley projects, with the Korean People Artist Federation Jeju Branch holding public art contest projects and choosing the winners. These winning works were draws on the walls of the houses lining both sides of the alley, decorating it entirely in colorful murals. In the first half of 2009, a second project was carried out by the university students of Jeju, covering the alley in even more murals. Afterwards, a third project was carried out in December 2009, and murals were created based on the drawings of over 1,500 students from 3 elementary schools in the vicinity. More projects for the future have been planned, and Jeju-si believes that this alley will become one of the most well-known cultural attractions of Jejudo Island once the project has seen completion. In July 2009, Jeju-si selected 31 areas in the region besides existing tourist attractions and nominated them as the hidden scenes of Jeju-si, and this alley was among them.
