Koreans lead a very contemporary lifestyle, much more modern and comfortable than our own. They do not wear their traditional outfits nor live in traditional houses. Aside from Hangul typography all over the city, you would think you are in New York or London while in Seoul.
Fortunately though, Koreans are very big on preserving their cultural experiences for future generations, and I was lucky to experience it. I am a serious tourist in these pictures, poses and all. But it is fun being a tourist, especially in a country where you would never ever pass for a native :)
