I finally went to the Hwaseong Haenggung.

No, it’s not that I’ve been there, but I’ve just passed by. Next time, I would take a walk in Hwaseong Haenggung Palace, day and night.

Suwon Hwaseong Haenggung Palace is Historic Site No. 478. Hwaseong Haenggung is a temporary palace where the king lived, and it is the largest and grandest with 576 bays.

King Jeongjo moved the tomb of his father, Prince Sado, in 1789, and traveled to Suwon 13 times in 12 years until 1800. He stayed at the Hwaseong Haenggung every time.

It is said that Hwaseong Haenggung was used as a government office when there was no king’s visit. Since then, the restoration work began in 1996, the 200th anniversary of the construction, and has been open to the public since 2003.

I think it was a miscalculation that my family visited on a good day on Sunday. There were hundreds of people like my family who thought the same way. I was nervous on the way to the parking lot, as I expected, it was already full, so We turned around and managed to park in a private parking lot.

Still, the weather was nice and crowded, and it felt like I was on a trip, so my footsteps were light.

In fact, these are the only two pictures that show the Hwaseong Haenggung.

There are many workshops, galleries, and restaurants along the way to Hwaseong Haenggung, so it took a minute to go 1m while looking around. In particular, it was almost stopped at a store with accessories and things that the child was eye-catching.

It was a tourist-specialized street so there were many things to see and experience classes were also held. There were many pretty accessories such as silver jewelry and ribbon crafts. There were also places where you can make and eat food from memories like dalgona. Pottery products also attracted attention, and long-standing makguksu restaurants and Chinese restaurants looked like good restaurants.

There was also a performance in the square, and people clapped to the exciting trot song and it was lively.

We went to have a late lunch and I was so happy to see the tangsuyuk (sweet and sour pork).

We went to Hwaseong Haenggung while looking around slowly and came back without entering Hwaseong Haenggung thanks to a child who badgered me to eat cotton candy.

This is a kimbap restaurant called “Weird Lawyer Woo Young-woo” that I encountered while walking around aimlessly while eating cotton candy. At first, I wondered why people were taking pictures in front of a small store at the end of the alley without going to Hwaseong Haenggung, but I immediately understood.

By the way, can you see the words “Woo Young Woo Gimbap” written on the shop awning in the picture? Come to think of it, that’s what I saw in the drama. It didn’t seem to be open. I think it’ll be opened another store soon.

We stopped by the top city library, washed out hands, drank a sip of water on the way down, and went home right away. I didn’t expect to only see the entrance of Hwaseong Haenggung and come back. Next time, I will definitely go inside the Hwaseong Haenggung.

Still, there were many things to see, lunch was delicious, and I happened to take a proof shot of Woo Young-woo’s gimbap restaurant, so I think Sunday’s afternoon trip was a success.

Then let’s meet again on our next trip. Bye!
