Gyeongbokgung, the Palace of Shining Happiness, is usually described as the grandest of Seoul palaces, despite twice being razed by Japanese invaders. After each attack, the palace was rebuilt intricately to its original grandeur, with some restorations still underway. The main building here saw kings crowned, foreign envoys welcomed, and affairs of state conducted. The stone markers in the courtyard were used to delineate the royal audience, with the most important and influential afforded closer proximity to the king himself.

Hi guys, sorry for the delay. I'm back on track now & will catch up today.
L&D, why not put Lee's extracted gall stones to good use? I suggest spacing them out from your front door to your couch. Only those closest to you get the most honored privilege of standing beside the large green one when addressing your royal highnesses.
