The Cheongwadae or Blue House is the executive office and formal residence of the South Korean head of state,
the President of the Republic of Korea and located in the city Seoul. The Korean name literally translates to

style with some modern elements.

Gyeongbokgung Palace

Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace, is a royal palace located in northern Seoul. First constructed in 1394
and reconstructed in 1867, it was the main and largest palace of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty.
The name of the palace, Gyeongbokgung, translates in English as "Palace of Shining Happiness." Nearly destroyed
under the rule of the Japanese government in the early 20th century, the walled palace complex is slowly being
restored to its original form prior to destruction. As of 2009, roughly 40 percent of the original number of palace
buildings still stand or are reconstructed.
