Gwanghwamun Square is a 20,000 m² stretch of public area that is located near the Gwanghwamun Gate and Cheonggyecheon Stream. There are two statues in this area: one of King Sejong the Great, the creator of Hangul scripts and the other one is of the naval commander Admiral Yi Sun Shin. There are also water fountains in the square, making the place a very pleasant place for a visit. Gwanghwamun Square is located in the middle of Gyeongbok Palace and Cheonggyecheon Stream, it is a good idea to group the square for a visit together with the other two places. More information on the square can be found on Seoul Government website.
