Being A Joseon Dynasty's Guard....
Before we left, we got something else to do. We signed up for a chance to try out passing an examination to be a Joseon guard.
As it turned out, well..I was surrounded by high school students who were more than eager to try this one out. I was beside myself...:) since...not many adults ( as expected!!!) were into this kind of stuff.
But..that didn't hamper us from 'enjoying' this act of valor:)*
Archery was one of the examinations we got to master.
After a 1.5 hour long exam, we got a photo session with the guards who helped us get through the *supposedly* rigorous test we'd ever been into.
And last ..but surely not least...a picture with our group's chief of guards. Oh, my friend, Ismail, managed to get a dip of lucky present since he managed to pull it off during an archery session. Bravo, dude.
