POSCO Center Building has been a landmark at Teheran Street, Daechi-dong, Gangnam as a winner of the 1995 Seoul Architectural Award. It's now surrounded with so many high-risen buildings with new designs and materials. And it's famous for the sculpture 'Amabel' of Frank Stella. I went there with Seoul Urban Sketchers last Saturday. Nobody expected that there would be a concert held regularly once a month on various kinds of music. Because it was an off day I was surprised at seeing the lively atmosphere inside. At the hall engineers kept moving fast and mike testing sounded repeatedly. It was for rehearsal of the event. Another bonus was prepared for us, TV drama location in the afternoon. For one short shooting so many extras and actress, equipment, cameramen, producer moved in a group following the orders. It was a very good chance to draw them simultaneously. Hope you to see more in Seoul community blog.

I was on duty yesterday, many people visited the exhibition hall and appreciated a lot of different sketches interestedly. KH Lee played a guitar with nimble fingers and we could feel a festive atmosphere. In the meantime, I sketched some familiar faces here and there inside the gallery without stopping to rest. I enjoyed a very pleasant time!

남산 도서관 갤러리의 많은 방문객들이 기타연주와 함께 인물 스케치의 實演을 보면서 '현장스케치'에 대한 사랑과 관심과 참여의욕이 넘치는 것을 볼 때 큰 보람을 느꼈습니다. 머지않아 <서울 도심(어반) 스케치전>은 취미 수준을 넘어서 공공 미술문화의 큰 장르로서 자리잡아 가리라고 확신합니다.

Unhyeongung Palace,designated as Historic Site No. 257 of the City of Seoul, is located in Uni-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul. There is the palace that King Gojong lived in before he acceded to the throne. The palace was built in 1864 and in 1869 more buildings were added. Unlike the other main palaces Changdeokgung and Gyeongbokgung, Unhyeongung is simple in design and use of colour for a palace. 
Yesterday It was so cold and windy for sketch, but snow-covered traditional buildings harmonized with the surroundings looked very beautiful. I sketched these elegant and lovely buildings at Unhyeongung Palace,thougtless of the time. After sketching at Unhyeongung Palace, on my way home, I dropped in the Nagweon Musical Instruments Arcade and drew some sketches in a melodious atmosphere.
