Summer Quarters

I'm living in a studio apartment with James and Dong-won this summer in Gwanghwamun, a centrally located area named for the largest gate of Gyeongbokgung, the main royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty. In addition to Gyeongbokgung, our apartment is within walking distance of Gwanghwamun Plaza, the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, Cheonggyecheon, the U.S. Embassy, the Central Government Complex, Gyeonghuigung, and the Blue House (official residence of the President of South Korea).
