MADANG is a three-level shopping and entertainment complex located just north of Wilshire Boulevard on the western side of Western Avenue.
This Purple Line metro station is named after the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue (the subway is on the northeast corner) and in 2013, after Alfred Hoyun Song, the first Asian-American politician to be elected as state senator to the California State Assembly.
The library is named after Pío de Jesús Pico, the last Mexican governor of Alta California. He died in 1894.
Located at the intersection of Wilshire and Western, the Wiltern Theatre and Pellissier Building is an Art Deco building decorated with blue-green terra cotta tiles.

The establishment of an SMTown Museum in Los Angeles was announced in 2013, with the building being purchased in July.

장터 … The annual Koreatown Festival is held here — it is also the starting point for the Korean parade at the same time.

Famous locally not for the chicken, but for the architectural style of its building. In 1990, Kentucky Fried Chicken (now KFC) opened an outlet in the “programmatic” architectural style on Western Avenue, just north of Beverly. Restaurants shaped like chicken buckets are rare, as increasingly are images of KFC’s founder Col. Harlan Sanders. There have been at least two fires at this location in the last decade.
