[OS] Seodaemun Prison

On October 27, the second OS (One Shot) program lasted about five hours from 9:20 to 2:30. At 9:20 a.m., we, around 20 people, met at the main gate of Yonsei University and went to the Seoul Museum of History in Jongno-gu, Seoul by bus.

 

We met our guides, took a picture, divided into two teams and moved on. First, we visited Gyeonghui Palace. After passing the magnificent Sungjeongjeon, we enjoyed the beautiful Jajeongjeon. We could feel the beauty of Korean tradition.

We also experienced hanji, video games, and projection machines while traveling through the street that preserved the old Korean look. Walking next to Inwang Mountain, we enjoyed the comfort of the leisurely day. Moreover, we visited the home of composer Hong Nan-pa who lived in the Japanese occupation.

 

After that, we passed through Independence Gate and arrived at Seodaemun Prison. The exchange students were shocked and angered by Japan's cruel torture. We was able to experience the dark solitary confinement of the time and sympathize with the suffering of independence fighters. After watching Seodaemun Prison, we took a group photo in front of Taegeukgi and went to eat lunch.
