It was a real fine day. The village Seochon locates left of Kyungbokgung Palace where kings of Chosun Dynasty had lived. We moved through the narrow alleys of the traditional houses though some houses were changed into modern style buildings. Because the village locates near presidential residence, place, and governmental office buildings the village keeps being transformed into nice looking cafes, restaurants and galleries. We enjoyed the walking and sketching. Having lunch we went to Baehwa girls' middle, high school and college. Boys were playing football in the large playground. The campus was very beautiful with hundred years' brick buildings. Every time we find new shapes of the old villages. Thank you!

북촌과 서촌을 그리고 있노라면~~
서울의 깊이를 느끼며 살아있는 듯한 역사의 행간을 거니는 기분입니다.
한없이 그려도 새로운 서울일 것 같습니다
