Forever Kimchi turned 3 today!
PS. Actually, it was yesterday (16 July 2014)!
Views of Bukchon Hanok Village from the very pleasant roof garden of historic Gahoe-dong Catholic Church.
This is what I love about Bukchon - just when you think you’ve seen everything, you discover somewhere new!
The Hyundai Card Design Library is a library (duh!)/cultural space located just behind the Wood & Brick in Bukchon Hanok Village.
Despite being, literally, a 30-second walk from our office, I had no idea this stunningly beautiful space - designed by Korean architectural house One O One Architects - even existed until I discovered this post by a wonderful Korean street photographer.
You need to be a Hyundai Card member (or accompanied by a member) to enter.
Sally McGrane on Conchita Wurst’s win: http://nyr.kr/1l3WehG
“Though she is Eurovision’s first bearded woman, Wurst is by no means the first gender-bending act to do well in the competition; in 1998, the transgender Israeli singer Dana International won. But, against the current political backdrop, the singer’s resounding victory can be read as a statement about Europe’s commitment to progressive ideals.”
