On my way to meeting Emily Gravett, I had to take pictures of these amazing stores and sights that truly reflect Korea's old and new culture!
*" Insadong-gil is "well known as a traditional street to both locals and foreigners" and represents the "culture of the past and the present". It contains a mixture of historical and modern atmosphere and is a "unique area of Seoul that truly represents the cultural history of the nation." The majority of the traditional buildings originally belonged to merchants and bureaucrats. Some larger residences, built for retired government officials during the Joseon period, can also be seen. Most of these older buildings are now used as restaurants or shops. *credit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insadong
