It's called palace but it's not a palace. Just an old residence building. It's beautiful and free of admission.

Unhyeonggung is located not far from Insadong and Changdeokgung Palace. It is in the middle of a street with no eye-catching sign, but you can find it through the traditional Korean gray rooftop. The mansion is free of charge with not many tourists. The buildings...More

We particularly visited this place to see where the shooting scene of the famous Goblin Korean drama took place. It's called a palace but of smaller proportions compared to other palaces. It's quiet and pretty now that the flowers are in bloom (spring season). A...More

Quaint remnant of what was once a larger palace complex. We saw Unhyeongung on the map, so stopped in while on a walk thru the area. Free admission, 30-45 minutes to see it all, including a small museum of "relics" and a few 'window' displays...More
