I'm really not good at explaining stuff so here's an excerpt from Visit Korea site on Bukchon Hanok Village:
Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses called 'hanok' that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name, 'Bukchon,' which literally translates to 'northern village,' came about as the neighborhoods that the village covers lie to the north of the two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse in Korean traditional culture.

|Admired the traditional architecture|
|This was the school that Winter Sonata was shot at|
|This was a design office. The people working here must be stress-free. Look at the environment!|
