Cheongwadae Sarangchae is beautifully landscaped, and from the grounds and outside building decor you have to assume beautiful inside. Its the official residence of the President of South Korea. You need official invitation to visit.

The Cheongwadae Sarangchae is presented as an introduction to the presidents of the Republic of Korea, but because of the extremely politically sensitive nature of that history -- most of those presidents were unelected dictators -- it's whitewashed and presented in an anodyne, almost content-free...More
