The Royal Guard Changing Ceremony
In ancient times the royal guards of Joseon Dynasty performed the given task by guarding the Gwanghwamun Gate the entrance of Gyeongbokgung Palace. The reenactment of the original ceremony began from 1996. The gate guardsmen perform the changing of the guards and hold a parade. The guards, uniforms, weapons and accessories as well as their strict ceremonial procedures catch the eyes of people especially foreign tourists when guardsmen perform the changing of guards in traditional costumes at the main gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace in downtown Seoul. Be sure to bring a camera to take lots of pictures.
Gyeongbokgung, or the Palace of Felicitous Blessing, was the main palace of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) and it opened in 1395, the fourth year of the reign of King Taejo, the founding monarch of Joseon.
The palace attained all necessary facilities and systems commensurate with its status as Joseon's primary palace during the reign of King Sejong. It was burnt down in 1592 during the Japanese invasions and remained in ruins until extensive reconstruction was undertaken in 1868. However, many of the structures were removed during the Japanese colonial rule (1908-1945).
The Cultural Heritage Administration has been restoring the palace since 1990. First of all, the old Japanese government-general building was dismantled and Heungnyemun and its cloisters were reconstructed. The bedchambers of the king and the queen, named Gangnyeongjeon and Gyotaejeon, as well as Donggung, or the East Palace, the residence of crown prince, were restored. Currently, Gwanghwamun, the palace's main gate, is being rebuilt. Thus, the palace is regaining its old splendor.

Namsangol Hanok Village
Namsangol Hanok Village is a collection of five hanoks (traditional Korean houses) from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), recovered from different parts of the city and relocated to the northern foot of Namsan.
The interiors of each of these five houses reflect owners from different walks of life, from the middle class to the yangban (who were mainly high government officials, noblemen and aristocrats).
The best representation of a hanok style house would be the house of Queen Yun's parents. Most hanoks, including this one, are built in the rectangular shape of the Korean letter "ㅁ" with an outdoor courtyard centered in the middle. On each side of the "ㅁ" is a different area of the house.
The main areas of a hanok house include a sarangchae for greeting guests, an anchae where the lady of the house resided and a daemunganchae which is just inside the main gate of the house.
Hanok houses also feature special doors which are designed to partition areas of the house into separate rooms. These doors allow for rooms such as the sitting room and master bedroom to be joined into a single large room or to widen a room whenever necessary.
Myeongdong became more of a commercial district after Korean War in 1950. The economy blossomed in 1960s and the area became for the center of finance, commerce and culture. In 1980s, new districts like Kangnam and Yeoido have been developed that weakened status and importance of Myeongdong. Recent aggressive investment in Myeongdong take its old time glory back and now Myeongdong is hot enough place to attract not only travelers but local people back from Kangnam. The most popular shopping category is "beauty." Competitive price and quality are well known among international travelers. The faceshop, Skin food, Misha, Aritaum, Hanskin, VanillaCo are all popular to travelers even more than to local. Myeongdong is the best place for shopping beauty products. Not only local brands, global big fashion brands like Zara, Forever 21, and GAP opened their first shop in Korea with the largest size. They are all nearby to make shopping easy.
