King Sejong's statue is put on a high pedestal. The behind building is the former Integrated Government Building. The function was moved to new Gwachon building.
In front of King Sejong's statue there was a big event to make Kimchi amounting to 10 kg x 2009 boxes which would be delivered to old people living in solitude. The event was supported by Agriculture Association. Many volunteers were eager to make Kimchi.
Inside the tents, the professor in gastrology, Yoon Sook-ja, was teaching how to make Kimchi.
Boxes filled with delicious Kimchi were piled for delivery. I could walk the Gwanghwamun Square which was designed this year removing the central lanes for cars. People love to walk and enjoy the scenery around the real central part of Seoul. Though I wanted to sketch the scenes I had no other papers but a ballpoint pen and a towel box. I used the inside of the box. I washed them at home. I should have kept a sketchbook 'always' as an urban sketcher.
King Sejong created the script of Korean language on 1443 with his scholars. Its creativity, reasonality, and scientific traits were proved by professional scholars in world. In front of the far mountain locates the Blue House(President's residence).
