Korean music (part 3)

This 3rd and final short video of Korean music from our trip to Seoul last weekend. This is a monk or priest playing the drum for a changing of the guards ceremony.

The drum is painted in the same color and style as the royal palaces and Buddhist temples.
Not sure whether this is a royal gate, temple, or tomb. Earlier in the day we had watched a much larger guard-changing ceremony at one of the big palaces.
I certainly recommend Seoul for a visit. It was inexpensive, the hospitality was great, and there was tons to see and do for free or for a small entrance fee.
