Strolling near Insadong in Seoul, I came upon this interesting setup of Fortune Tellers. They are each in their tent waiting patiently for business.

In the park behind the fortune tellers, there stands an ancient pagoda circa 7/8th century. It is enclosed in plexiglass for protection. Not often do we get to see ancient structures in modern cities.
