Today, I went to Gyeongbukgung, which is an old palace which was built in 1396. At that time, the capital wasn’t in Seoul, but in Gaeseong. Once Gyeongbukgung was finished, the capital was relocated to Seoul, which at that time was known as Hanseong.

I was taken aback by its beauty. I was with my friend Young Ha, and oddly enough, she hadn’t seen this palace before either. She’s very busy with her studies, and I finally managed to pull her away from her books.

This was a truly moving experience, to see an 800 year old palace, and be able to walk on the same grounds as the king and queen of the Joseon Dynasty.
