The Royal Palace of the Joseon Dinasty dates back to 1395 and was partially damaged by the Japanese national army in the 19th century.
You cannot say that it stands out in the middle of the North Seoul. Much higher buildings all around. It is instead a citadel full of honor and beauty. It is a remembrance of what Korea has been in centuries, before industrialization, before global economies, before crazy growth.
This palace is a record of materials such as wood and metal, of colors of traditional national costumes, of detailed decorations in bright colors.
Then, a member of the staff in traditional costume turns, a earphone appears, and you are back in the 2000s.
