one spot that’s not very well advertised on the “visit Korea” site but is very near numerous famous spots like Gyeongbokgung (which is near to Samcheongdong which is alsooooooo near to Insadong andddddd Changgyeonggung/Changdeokgung) and the King Sejong statue right in front of Gyeongbokgung. in fact, it’s RIGHT at the statue.
anyways read on!
love how Korea preserve their nature eventhough it’s slowly turning into a concrete jungle. on the picture above, a construction is going on on the right. and can you see trees camouflaging into the forest background? =D. pretty awesome if you’d ask me.
also, last week Seoul was kind of going through a drought so they had big tubes of water and a flowering pot for you to fill it in yourself and do some community service on your free time. smart yes? and people actually does it! I did it too =D.
where the bus stop us at.
colours of Korea!
like the drama’s, couples fooling around at the fountain!
Admiral Yi Sun-Shin!
super cute baby!
linking to the subway. right behind the Admiral’s statue.
spot the face. haha. it’s pretty special. there was a really awesome indie band behind as well which later on attracted a lot of people =D.
the great King Sejong!
with the great King Sejong!!!
to the Subway station!
Haechi toys. a LOT of them.
where Iris was filmed! at Gwanghwamun Square!
and the King Sejong Museum is of course, DIRECTLY behind the King Sejong statue. have never thought of it.
the wide garden space in front of Gyeongbokgung!
love how couples are like here. not exactly like the drama’s or anything actually but they look really happy!
spring’s over but flowers are still all around! spot the lavender!
take 3! saw someone posing like this so I copied wth. hahahaha.
okay so lets start our journey to King Sejong’s Museum!
I should be honest with you. I didn’t actually read everything inside. I joined the activities that looked fun and was actually fun to me. but one particular article there really caught my attention. it was the Cia-Cia island. it’s somewhere in Indonesia where they do not have a writing system so they adapted the Korean writing system so that their language will not extinct. thought it was pretty awesome. =D.
the early hangeul writings. so difficult to read. T_T. a mixture of hangeul and hanja actually.
Admiral Yi Sun Shin!
awwww. <3. they are not exactly that young but still awwwwww.
the place where you can learn how to make an (educational) fan for free! not recommended for those who can’t read and write Korean because it requires you to write Korean phrases from King Sejong. but you can choose to draw drawings instead =D.
the turtle ship! for war!
my own turtle ship wth.
for the boys.
I once used to feel tall. until I came here I feel super short. or just average. Korean girls are SO TALL!
the insides of the war ship.
and my personal favourite. somewhere for you to leave your mark and memories on. =3. writing your name and country in Korean!
Issac said my writings are like an elementary school kid =(. I was trying to copy the professionals. but failed big time U_U.
left the right one there. try to spot it if you can!
right! foreigners can write 2. you can take 1 home and put 1 there. and if you want, they can mail yours to you. for locals, they can only write 1 =S. and cannot leave any there.
Issac’s one is actually pretty cool T_T.
the dragon is le win! good job, Elden Woo from New Zealand!
I was trying to copy writings like theseeeeeeeeee. T_T.
and later I went to make my fan. =3.
I felt so stupid when I was walking back. initially I thought it was just a wall filled with notes. BUT IT’S THE ADMIRAL’S FACE!!!
it reads as “HA”!
art with the Andro boy in it!
all hail Queen Jamie!
okay see you later time to studyyyyyyyyy >=D. RAWR!
