Frolicking in Changdeokgung Palace’s Secret Garden

Sometimes I wonder how a nation has managed to capture the overzealous attention of young fans throughout Asia, be situated just 38 miles away from the DMZ line and survive, have a long list of delicious street food and traditional delicacies and still have such beautifully maintained palaces in the city centre.
