Independence Movement Day

Thanks to the Chosun Bimbo and The Daily Kimchi I knew that today was a national holiday celebrating the start of the Korean Independance movement in 1919, which explained why Yeouido was so quiet this morning and why there were so many flags out. So in honour of the day, here's a photo the Korean flag I took recently in Yeouido park.

You can just see the LG Twin towers in the distance.

We are off to Tokyo, so no blogging for a while.

I am not sure where I stand on big flags.... But I do like Korean Independence Day, the whole March 1st Movement intrigues me a lot.
