It was not cold rather than we had expected. Lots of citizen including children visited the National Palace Museum of Korea located inside the Gyungbokgung.  Special exhibition "Late Princess Deokhye" was on show apart from the permanent exhibition of royal family's clothes, vehicles, furniture, and musical instruments, and so on. Six sketchers participated in including a new comer Kim Goo Young who was very enthusiastic in sketching. Thank you all the participants, especially, our old friend Kim Mi-kyung. Hope to see you and your great drawings often!
