Changing of the Guard - Seoul

Hello, correct me if I'm wrong, but my research shows that there are 2 different changing of the guard ceremonies in Seoul. The first is at Gyeongbokgung Palace and occurs every hour on the hour from 10am-3pm daily (except Tuesdays). Is this one worth seeing?

The second ceremony seems to be a must see and is a much bigger more elaborate ceremony - at Deoksugung palace. Throughout my research, I have come across different times for when this ceremony occurs. One website I came across said it was only once a day at 3pm. My travel book says it occurs three times per day: 10:30am, 2pm, and 3pm (every day except Monday). Another website listed the times as 11am, 2pm, and 3:30pm. Can anyone give me a definitive answer -- I'm not spending a lot of time in Seoul and this is something I do not want to miss!!! Do we need to arrive early to be in a good position to see? I also read somewhere that the ceremony is not held on very hot days -- does anyone know if this happens often or if it has to be very extremely hot for the ceremony to be cancelled?

Thanks for the help!
