  • This is Shogun Japan repelled during the Korea sending troops. I still suspect to Japan. In other words, the General is Japan. Old times lived in Seoul, Japan became nostalgic when sometimes all was (laughs). Are listed by city, Lee generals, Sejong the great, Gwanghwamun, Gyeongbokgung Palace. Especially look great, so easy to find. From the middle of a Sejong-ro is a trail, you can walk.
