Outside the main gate of the Deoksugung Palace was a free hanbok-wearing opportunity.
The entrance to the Deoksugung Palace was only 1000 Won (my first entrance expense so far). There was also a free changing-of-the-guards performance in the main gate. I could literally feel that good luck was at my side on this day. I did not enjoy that first hanbok wearing activity in the tour (Day 4). Again, on one side I took a picture with the old Deoksugung Palace and on the other backdrop was Seoul Plaza, the location where Koreans watched the FIFA World Cup 2002 championships together.
Emily said that Koreans were all rooting for their team in the square during that moment and there was a Reds Fever. Learn more about the Reds Fever here.
Our rapokki was paired with yummy Danmuji (Pickled Radish Slices, another favorite, normally eaten in kimbap or as a side dish - banchan) and a vegetable mix (sounds like Yaqemuqim in Korean). Although our order was big and had all the ingredients, Emily and I agreed that it didn’t taste as good and it was meant for foreigner consumption.
