'Gwanpungnu(Main gate)' located at Dalseong Park which used to be called as 'Pyemullu' that opened the gate at 5 AM dawn, and closed at 10PM with music informing the people. I wanted to climb up there to see the complete view of the Dalseong Park, but it is closed for cultural asset protection!

There are friends who are just staring into empty space, and some are eating while some of them are huddled around together.
