한국 Seoul -- 명동

MYEONG DONG 明洞

明洞在日治時代是日本人居住的地區,也是首爾的商業中心,主要開設銀行、金融、證券機構。今日的明洞是首爾市的購物區,較多中國人聚居的地方,有一些中國菜館。
Located in the heart of Seoul, Myeongdong is a representative shopping district in Korea. Compared to Namdaemun and Dongdaemun Market which sell products at low prices, most shops in Myeongdong deal with mid-level price items. The main street in Myeongdong is lined with quality brand name shops, while mid-class brand name shops and no-name brand shops are located in the side alleys.


When strolling around the place i came across a soldier and his girlfriend, wondering whether it is the local regulation for them to stay in their uniform all the time within the military service period...
