Gyeongbokgung Palace is commonly referred to as the Northern Palace because its location is the furthest north when compared to the neighboring palaces of Changdeokgung (Eastern Palace) and Gyeonghuigung (Western Palace) Palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful and remains the largest of all five palaces.
The premises were once destroyed by fire during the Imjin War (Japanese Invasions, 1592-1598). However, all of the palace buildings were later restored under the leadership of Heungseondaewongun during the reign of King Gojong (1852-1919). We sell a photoshoot tour on our web-site which takes place in this beautiful Gyeongbokgung Palace that will capture your beautiful moments in Hanbok(Korean traditional costume).
These days, when the blue sky of the fall season is so beautiful, it is a really nice time to take a picture in Seoul. Why don’t you wear Hanbok, a traditional costume in Korea, and take memorable pictures? Already, countless foreigners are making their own memories at Gyeongbok Palace through our photo tour. Of course, you can take pictures on your own or even selfies, but I can assure you that with the little bit of help of a professional, pictures will be totally different. As you’ve already experienced, all you have left after your trip is wonderful pictures!
These two beautiful ladies were friends from school. Both are of half Taiwanese and half Hong Kong descent and now live in different countries, but they met in Korea to celebrate one’s birthday! What a sweet friend she is. They bought a package that also included makeup, so they borrowed Hanbok, got makeup from an expert and started taking pictures.
The National Palace Museum of Korea is located south of Heungnyemun Gate, and the National Folk Museum is located on the eastern side within Hyangwonjeong. Actually, on this day, Gyeongbokgung was closed for its holiday. So we took photos in the National Folk Museum nearby, and it was still beautiful and traditional place to take pictures!
Seeing foreigners posing affectionately in Korean traditional costume made me feel happy and proud of my country. Hanbok is very beautiful and luxurious everytime I see people in it. Especially, it looked even more beautiful with the traditional hairstyle they had done. Watching them pose in various poses while taking care of each other, I thought that I would like to go abroad and take memorable pictures with my friends, as well.
I think fall and winter are really good to take pictures except for summer when hanbok can be too hot to wear. In cold winter, you can take some wonderful pictures by wearing cute fur over the hanbok. There are always so many people wearing Hanbok in the palace, so one who doesn’t want to do something everyone else does might think that it’s not worth taking pictures. But don’t you think that there might be a reason for something that so many people are actually doing? I recommend you take a picture that you will never forget. I’ll help you! Another reason is that you should try our photo tour is that you can enter Gyeongbokgung Palace for free if you wear hanbok.
We understand your special moment is very important and unique. You probably spend a lot of money to make your special trip to Korea. I’ll help you make it a more special one with my camera 🙂
