Seoul: Dongdaemun: Kyung Hee University

I never heard of this place, until I was looking for where to hunt autumn leaves in Seoul from instagram.  

Then I got interested as the place has Gothic architecture.  Bad that we were not allowed to go further in the campus, but given sometime go ahead and go further the castle like building which is the Hall of Peace.

Just 5 days after we visited the place, there was a kick-off of global hallyu awards ceremony, 2016 Asia Artist Awards, which was attended by Park Bo-gum, Kim Yoo-jung and more.
