Gwanghwamun Square is still busy with heavy traffic today. Gyeongbokgung is closed, but the main gate, Gwanghwamun, is still protected by Sungmun. Mormon also wears a mask!

This is the Kyonin Museum in Insa-dong. Since it was a weekday lunchtime, many office workers enjoyed teatime after lunch. The nice weather in Hanok is attractive!

Today I went to Knowle Park in World Cup Park. This park is famous as a park where you can see a beautiful sunset, fitting the name Nooul (= Korean for sunset). On the day I visited, there was a couple shooting a wedding. (In Korea, it is common to take various pictures as a memorial before a wedding. The pictures taken are used for decorating the wedding hall on the wedding day or making an album.)

In Seoul, there were three new infections. Crisis warning is serious, and'securing middle distance of life' is level 2 (Seoul standard). This week, the number of new infected people from Jeollanam-do and Gwangju is increasing, and it is receiving attention that it may become the second Daegu city. (In Daegu, along with Gyeongsangbuk-do, the number of infected people increased explosively in March, and half of the cumulative number of infected people so far occurred from this area.)

I went to Insadong at lunch time. There were more office workers taking a walk after lunch than people who seemed to be tourists. In summer, I bought a mask that looks just like Hanbok. The point is cute embroidery.

I went to Shalloskill at Seoul Main Entrance Station. It is a new attraction that has recently become popular with fashionable cafes and gourmet foods. It was Sunday, so young people such as college students enjoyed dating and eating with friends. It's fun to enjoy, but be sure to wear a mask and wash your hands for at least 30 seconds, and be careful of personal hygiene. Group meetings are postponed, and if you have symptoms, it is important to take a break at home for 3 to 4 days to see the condition.

It is an underground shopping street of Amorepacific head office connected to Shin-yama station.
It was around 3 o'clock on weekdays, so there weren't many people, but at a famous cafe, one or two people could work or talk. In-room facilities such as cafes where it is not possible to use while wearing a mask may keep the distance by pulling out the table.
