Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul is one of the royal palaces of the Yi Dynasty. A corridor surrounds the main hall, Geunjeongjeon. In the past, bureaucrats in hanbok (traditional Korean dress) would have hurried back and forth through these corridors, but nowadays, the only people walking around here are carefree tourists.
As I walked along, thinking about the past, a woman wearing a Chima-Chogori appeared in front of me. She was folding her parasol and talking on her cell phone. She looked busy. I rarely see people wearing Chima-Chogori when I walk around town, so I guessed that this woman must be an employee here.
