Here’s some shots of the new and improved Gwanghwamun area, a.k.a. Gwanghwamun Plaza, taken on Saturday night:
It’s certainly more colorful than the old Sejongno, and it’s nice that for the first time, you can actually approach the landmark Yi Sun-sin statue, which previously was on a traffic island in the middle of one of Seoul’s busiest stretches of road. The kiddies seem to like it, too.
And it wouldn’t be a full photo essay without some food pics, in this case, some rather nice Kaesong-style sundae and Hamhung-style naengmyeon, complete with raw skate.
