Seoul City Council

This is a photo from a while ago.  I always really liked this building, mostly because of its retro ’30s charm.  This is where the city council of Seoul meets.  If I’m not mistaken, it once served as the home for the National Assembly while the Republic of Korea was being organized.  The Assembly later moved into the old Japanese government building which is where they stayed until the new capitol building was built in the 1970s.  The old Japanese government building was later demolished.
