Gangnam at Lunar New Year 설날의 강남

During Lunar New Year and Chuseok, Seoul is amazing beautiful for a few hours.  In the mornings you can go out to the busiest of places and find no one.  This year I went to Gangnam and got to experience a kind of aloneness I have never felt in Korea.  

Some of the places I visited I have never seen with less than 100 hundred people, but on New Year, there was literally no one.  

Seoul is a beautiful city and a lot of that beauty can be attributed to its bustling energy.  Everywhere you go there are thousands and thousands of people all moving in different directions.  But for a moment on this one day, I got the chance to see its beauty in a different light.
