Here’s a lovely old bank building.  Nearby the wonderful old Bank of Korea, there is this nice old building now inhabited by Standard Chartered Bank.  It looks like a bank.

Here is the old Bank of Korea building.  It was built by a Japanese architect.  The Japanese became highly skilled at working in western styles.  There are a few of the old Japanese-built structures still around.  This is probably one of the best examples.  Currently, it is home to the Bank of Korea Museum.

The Bank of Korea, the nation’s central bank is currently still in the area.  They chose to build something that kind of still looks like a bank.
