Yup, this trip is already 3 years ago, and I am still catching up with the travel posts! I still have a number of these on my drafts folder and my goal is to publish them all this quarter (or this year 😅)
|This is still not Insadong, just in the subway station and it took my attention. So crafty!|

We walked for a few bit and arrived at this establishment named Maru (마루). There were a lot of things to look in this place so this is where we spent most of our time sight-seeing and window shopping.
This is where I bought the dream catcher that I gave to my sister. I really liked this place – even the vandals were so artful! If only I had more time, I would stay longer to check out all kinds of cute stuff at each store. But well time was running fast (and it’s getting late already) so we decided to call it a day.
While we were walking on the road towards the subway, we finally learned why there were only a few people around. We heard chants at the horizon slowly getting louder and louder with every second. When we looked behind, there was a line of protesters going towards the same direction as we were! We hurriedly retreated and paced towards the end of the road. Upon reaching the main road, we saw this – hundreds of policemen were on standby. Looks like they knew the protesters were arriving tonight.
Panic-stricken and laughing at the same time, we ran towards the subway. We never knew what everything was about, but thankfully we arrived at our hostel unscathed.
That’s one memory that not everyone will experience in Seoul. 😂
