운현궁: Unhyeongung

Sunday, after making my way through the backstreets of Jongno, I found myself at the doorway to Unhyeongung. Despite the name (gung) it is not officially a palace, per se, but it was the home of King Gojong (26th Joseon King) lived before he became the King of the Joseon Dynasty. Though not as impressive as any of the large palaces in Seoul, if you're passing by, it's certainly worth the 700 won to get in and wonder around for a little while.

To get to Unhyeongung, go to Ankuk Station, line 3, and walk about 100 meters south from Exit 4.
