Fodor's Review

Gyeonghuing is by far the least grand of Seoul's palaces, but also the least visited. For travelers interested in seeing a palace at their own pace, free of tour-groups and crowds, Gyeonghuing offers a more personal experience than the other palaces. Built in 1617 it is also the most recent of Seoul's palaces, but like the others Gyeonghuigung suffered a similar cycle of destruction and restoration. In addition to being Seoul's only palace with free entry, Gyeonghuigung holds Taekwondo demonstrations at 2 pm every Wednesday and Saturday. Also, the palace is often used as a set in Korean films and dramas, so lucky visitors may even happen upon a movie-shoot.
