Traditional Homes and Korean Hanbok

Hello world,

I had so much fun wearing a Hanbok: the representative example of traditional Korean dress worn during festivals. I felt like royalty because the cloth was so pretty! Marlie and I sat on this bench that was meant for a king!


Another great experience was that were able to see a Korean traditional style home. Everything looked very detailed and elaborate; from the roof shingles to the beautiful artwork painted on the ceiling, to the roof wood work.

I really want a house built like this, I felt that it had good energy.

Just before we snapped this photo (below), we were able to see a ceremony outside of the gate, with trumpets, drums, and flags. I am not sure what it was for, but it was pretty amazing- they were very serious with their movements, which  showed me that it was something to respect. IMG_1990

As you can see in the photo, the lettering is actually Chinese characters and it means “gate.”


Another mountain top view was in order, here we enjoying the view from Eungbong Mt.

So many eventful days in Seoul! I am very tired! Ask me any questions you’d like.

Until next time.

    1. From what I have seen, this is a specific tourist type of area. Most live in apartments. I was told average cost is 600,000 Won per month to live in the city. However, their minimum wage is around 3,000- 4,000 Won so it is expensive from their perspective. Thanks for the comment!
