Sightseeing in Seoul- Hoyer- SNU- Summer Language Grant
For the last blog and video of my language study trip to Seoul, I visited the National Museum of Korea, Nakseongdae Market, Gwanghwamun Square, the Sejong Center for Performing Arts Exhibition Hall, and Myeong-dong. The video is filled with pictures, videos of street performances, and my narration about the sites I was able to visit.
I attended a special exhibition commemorating the 40th anniversary of the excavation of the Sinan Shipwreck at the National Museum of Korea. Nakseongdae Market is a market near my residence in Korea. Gwanghwamun Square is a famous tourist site in Seoul commemorating historical Korean heroes. Next to the square lies the Sejong Center for Performing Arts where I visited the Exhibition Hall dedicated to King Sejong and Admiral Yin. Finally, I went for a stroll down the popular shopping district of Myeong-dong to buy last minute gifts for family and friends.
