First destination was Leeum Samsung Museum of Art. Pretty pricey - W26,000 entry and W2,000 for two audio devices. Some wonderful 12th-14th Century celadon pottery, paintings and calligraphy from 100-600 years ago, Buddhist works from up to 1,400 years ago, etc in museum 1.
In museum 2 it had contemporary modern art. Some proof that weird art isn't only from Western artists. Pity we couldn't take any photos.
Walked to Itaewon and had dolsot bibimbap and naengmyeon for lunch at Sejong Garden. Here we parted ways and The Boy and I visited the War Memorial of Korea.

Back home and The Boy and I ate at Burger Hunter again. Not as good this time around. The missus and I went for a long walk in an area we hadn't previously been to and saw a shabu shabu restaurant.
