As a footnote to Do Hyun's kind invitation: Might I urge anyone
visiting Seoul to be sure to go see the "gentrified place" he mentions.

The restored Cheonggyecheon stream, to my eye, changes the character
of Seoul - much for the better. Notwithstanding Mayor Lee Myung-bak's
political ambitions, the result has great character and charm. More, please!
