Thursday Doors: Heunginjimum Gate

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.

This is the third post from a recent trip I took with my daughter to Seoul, Korea.

This week I’m featuring doorways and gates (no doors per se) at the Heunginjimum Gate. It was the main east gate of the old wall that surrounded Seoul.  It was originally built in 1398, rebuilt in 1869.

I’ll leave you with this shot of cheerleaders dancing in the parking lot behind the Heunginjimum Gate.  These elderly women happily waved their white pompoms and “boogied” to K-pop music.  Their enthusiasm and joy was contagious!

If you would like to see doors from all around the globe, visit Norm’s.

Kamasahamnida (thank you) for stopping by.  Have a nice weekend!

    I like the idea of elderly women in little cheerleading uniforms dancing with pom-poms 🙂

    1. Me too! I think it’s pretty common there, these types of groups, and promotes physical activity and camaraderie for the elderly. They’re so cute too! 🙂

        But do they ever get to go and cheer somewhere?

    I love seeing iron gates. There’s just something special about the combination of strength and beauty.

    1. It really is. I love the wooden kind but we don’t have too many it seems here and other parts of Asia I’ve been to recently. Probably because of damp and hot weather all year round. Anyways, thank you as always for stopping by!
