The 14th century Royal Palace is surrounded by bright, bold, modern Seoul and is an example of the beauty and might of Korean culture. These young girls and a boy were Taiwanese tourists like me walking the palace grounds and making selfies like most visitors. I loved that they came dressed in this way, seemingly to show respect for the importance, history and beauty.

I've been traveling to South Korea to photograph daily life and news events for nearly 20 years now. When I see a beautiful, seemingly futuristic public space like the Dongdaemun Design Plaza at night I feel how much Seoul and the country continues to change. #dongdaemundesignplaza, #visitseoul, #iseoulu, #ddp, #seoul, #sponsored
