    Korea has thousand years of history and Korea is Nation State.

    If you are an international tourist, you might know Seoul City is one of the unique cities has hundreds years history footprints. You will see high-tech right next to thousand-year-old tradition. The palace is one of the popular historical places. Chosun Empire has ended in 1910 while Seoul has been the capital of the Jason dynasty for the past 500 years.

    What is first thought of the word "Palace"? Place for kings and noble families? It is true, but only the part of it. You will see the zone where kings and families stayed with 2000 people ruled the whole country. There is only parts of palaces remain which makes many people find they are only for the king and family. The palace was the space for discussing how to rule the country. The palace was like a big company runs a huge organization, a nation where 2000 people are working together inside. Most people now understand the palace only for the king and family after modern city development.
