The sunset in Seoul has many colors. Sometimes yellow, orange, pink, and red. The glow of the setting sun transforms a normal place and ordinary time into precious memories. Is there a more romantic moment than watching the beautiful sunset with someone you love?
In front of the stone wall of Gyeongbokgung Palace
One day in the summer, which was hotter than usual, we lost our destination. We plopped down on a random bench by the street. Then a pink cloud over the stone wall across the way greeted our eyes. A quiet stillness prevailed and it drew us into nothingness of thought. After just sitting and watching the evening glow for a few minutes, we went back on our way.
At Cheonggyecheon Stream
The sound of murmuring water, the soft melody flowing from the violin, the ruddy sky, everything was perfect. Dipping our feet in the stream and watching the red glow, our hearts were also burning together. The sound of the violin caressed our ears, and we were like the main characters in a movie. At the moment of sunset, everyone there was looking at the same place. Not the smartphone, but the sky and the lover next to each other.
At Gyeongui Line Forest Park
We were walking along the street, where car horns, dogs barking, people’s laughter and various sounds mingled together. As soon as we lifted our heads and looked to the sky, we stopped walking. Attracted by a cloud which looked like cotton candy, we captivated by the moment. Nothing was heard. Only you, me and the cloud seemed to exist.
