Picture perfect


Buyongjeong, or the Buyong Pavilion, located in the “secret garden” of Changdeok Palace, central Seoul, has recently undergone renovations. Officials say the pavilion - National Treasure No. 1763 - is now closer than ever to “Donggwoldo,” the drawing of the palace structures made by royal painters sometime around 1830. They say the process involved rebuilding the roof that had been demolished during Japanese colonization (1910-45) and restoring pillars, roof tiles and parts of the walls.
