East Sea Part 5 – Gangneung

We left what seemed like a fairy tale setting and made our way to Gangneung. This is a popular tourist destination and also the birth place of Yul-gok. Who is Yul-gok? He is the man whose face appears on the 5,000 Won note.

There is also a statue of Sin Saim-dang Yul-goks mother who was a renowned artist in her days.

We had lunch at a quaint tofu restaurant.
