Gyeongbokgung Palace and Gwanghamun

unique door
I already went to palace in 2006 but because i watch 2D1N i want to come here again. In 2D1Nspecial guest  professor brought all the members to tour the palace. They has some quiz n task  at the palace. I'm Pd Na 2d1n fan  so around that team the cast is still with Seunggi , Eun Jiwon, Sugeun, Jung Min , Uhm Tae Wong  & Hodong.

Similar with Buckingham they also have change guard ceremony :)
Gyeongbokgung original building is only 10% ...90 % is renovate by the govt . The palace was burnt down during Japanese invasion. 
Oh u can also has free guided tour *english / mandarin

king n queen having tea here

Our tour guide inform us that during spring -April they will open the second floor to the public so we come here too early.
Things i learnt from 2d1n the window is shape is like a frame so when u look outside the view eg mountain, flowers will look like a live painting. Awesome right ??

the window w unique frame and the unique roof

Fish inside the pond. I believe the view in spring will be magnificent !
The king and the queen, king  mother has their own house.
If u watched Korean drama in Joseon era you will familiar with this

Ondol traditional heating floor

the roof deco show you the rank of the owner

After Joseon , it is the end of Korean Royal Family .  There is no heir to continue the legacy. No Goong drama doesnt count that is just a fiction. lol

I like the color of their palace , it is so colorful.
