On June 11th
2022, 3 members of Yonsei Global and 3 exchange students gathered in front of
the Sinchon campus to visit the Gyeongbokgung Palace. We met in the noon to
have lunch before heading to Gyeongbokgung station. After having a wonderful
meal of sujebi and kimbop in Sinchon, we changed into hanbok, a Korean
traditional clothing, and walked to the palace.
palace was extraordinary with its beautiful structure and scenery. We were also
in time for the marching show, where people dressed in executive uniforms
marched into the palace and played Korean traditional instruments. We enjoyed
the show for a while and took pictures.
After the show,
we took a long walk around the place. We admired the main palace and the
throne, but also had a nice time looking around the scenery and enjoying the
summer breeze. We had fun taking pictures of each other in hanbok and getting
to know each other over a cup of coffee.
The walk around
Gyeongbokgung Palace was not only a great opportunity to explore Korean historical
sites and traditional clothing, but also to meet new friends. We had a
delightful time talking about our interests and getting to know each other. We wish
to meet again soon.
