Monday Seoul | Jongmyo 종묘

Another bad sound quality video! I stayed quiet because I didn't wanna be louder than the guide. I also didn't wanna piss off the gods by making too much noise 😃

This is a shrine for former kings. Shamanism is still quite big in Korea, so many people would pray and pay homepage to their ancestors and wish themselves good luck. In case with kings, they had a dedicated place for ceremonies and rituals to please the gods. Today, average households do it in their homes.

A special thanks to @jjuuaanchoo for giving me the suggestion. Let me know if any of you have other places that you'd like me to go.

Unfortunately, the sound quality is quite bad because I'm speaking very softly. I don't really have a religion, but I can be superstitious at times. I wanted to be quiet and respectful.

Here're the photos I took.

↑ You're not allowed to have live fish in the pond because this place is for the dead (I guess the kings didn't know about micro-organisms)

I completely agree that people should be happy to express their own spirituality and not worry so much about the way others are manifesting their prayers. I find the shrine enchanting but also a little creepy. That door where the woman wanted to enter, is there a king’s tomb right behind it?

·

i think so. each compartment is supposed to be a tomb.
yes it is a little creepy because it's meant to be a place for the dead 😆
which is also why i didn't wanna be too loud and piss off any of the spirits haha

it turns out that the temple for the former king is also very beautiful to see, I think it is very interesting to be used as a history of the temple

·

it was quite interesting indeed, even tho i'm not too interested in kings because they're just dictators. the place was beautiful tho :)

I have read, that the temple was entrusted as a sacred place and so many worshiped at the temple, but I also did not fully understand the history of this temple

·

haha i don't fully understand either. but i do like the idea of being grateful to your forefathers 😃

What a nice place, friend. and really there are so many religions some good and some bad ... I liked your photos I could not upload the video ... greetings

·

you mean you couldn't 'watch' the video? that's alright i guess :) i still have photos and i'm glad you like them!
yes there's so many religions and cultures. i don't really care about them as long as they give you the peaceful mind 👍

Apparently time was on your side in that visit. You have a very interesting and broad culture. I would like to know the place someday while I continue watching the Korean series on this side of the world hahahaha. Greetings and thanks for sharing a bit of your story.

·

thanks for watching @loresb 😄
i'll continue to share videos + my thoughts. i hope you enjoy!

You done well it was sound advice from the sign @roundbeargames its recommended not to piss of the gods or the tour guide LOL, haha when you mentioned about the no fish I was thinking the same, thanks for showing us the temple.

·

yea man especially at a place like that, where i barely know anything about. who knows what's gonna happen lol. who knows what kinda funky spirits are there just waiting to do weird shit to you 😐
i can be super superstitious sometimes!

Buenas tardes amigo bellas fotos . Muy buen trabajo. Felicitaciones. Saludos

·

saludos @nieuscarin!
have a great day

very good your videos brother would like to know how I do to upload them I have many but I do not know what to do?

·

there're many different platforms :)
youtube dtube dlive facebook instagram, etc. just use one of them (or maybe all of them?!) 😄

·
·

but how do I use them? That's what I would like to learn. How to do ...

·
·
·

well, there's so much info out there i just can't summarize everything for you.
all you have to do is either go to one of them and start doing it right now. or start googling 😃👍

wwwooo!!! wonderful place!!! it could be the paradise... :)

·

well it's a cemetery/shrine so i wouldn't call it a paradise with all the dead people inside! 😆
but yea the place was kinda beautiful haha

슬로또 지금 공사중이더라구요 ㅠㅠ
별일없으신지요?

·

Really beautiful place, when I watch your Vlog..it's like bring my memories when I watching famous korean drama " Dae Jang Geum | The Jewel in The Palace" (I don't know that's the place or not). No matter what, I'll always waiting your updated for spreading your travel in my dreaming country, "Your country" I mean 😂😂

·

haha that drama is about the inside of the palace. this is just a shrine/cemetary 😆
but thanks for the awesome support! hopefully one day i will be able to invite you!

Wow... this place is open on Monday. I really like the palace right north of that place but it's always closed on Monday.

·

it's open but you have to follow the guide or they'd kick you out 😆
they're trying to keep the place as clean and nice as possible.

근데 전업 스티머세요?

·

전업까진 아니고여 ㅋㅋ ^^;
걍 열심히 하는 정도?

·
·

아 네~ 멋지시네요~

buen dia @roundbeargames,de verdad muy bonitas fotografias,y siempre haciendo buenos trabajos saludos

·

thanks @petrarodriguez! i'm glad you like the photos. hopefully you'll be able to see the video as well 😄

Muy en el fondo @roundbeargames aunque muchos no lo expresemos pero somos muy supersticiosos. Y siempre es bueno conocer muy bien la tierra de nuestros antepasados. Las fotografias del Santuario son espectaculares

·

yes sometimes i get very superstitious too without even realizing it. we just want the best things for ourselves and our families. that's all! 😆

짱짱맨 출석부 호출로 왔습니다.

Beautiful view...
Amazing photographs friend..

·

thanks the weather was great today :)

·
·

You are welcome friend...And thank you for your support..

종묘 한번도 안가봤는데 요즘 날씨에 산책하기 좋을거 같아요 ㅎㅎ 혼자 꿍얼꿍얼 하시는거 재밌어서 끝까지 봄 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

·

ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 왠지 저도 모르게 꿍얼꿍얼하게 되는 분위기였다는! 😄

·
·

ㅎㅎㅎ 카메라 뭐쓰시나요? 전방이랑 후방 동시에 보여서 신기신기

·
·
·

폰이에요 ㅋㅋㅋ 옛날 lg g4 :)
그냥 기본 옵션중에있어용

Interesting place! This time, at least, the weather was in his favor, recording outside is a difficult task, so I value his effort. However, what caught my attention was this comment 👉 You're not allowed to have live fish in the pond because this place is for the dead (I guess the kings didn't know about micro-organisms) I swear I died of laughter hahahaha 😂😂

·

haha yes that was my initial reaction when the guide told me the reason why there's no fish in the pond 😄

public trust in the gods still exists now, the proof is that many visit their place of worship,

·

koreans still worship many different gods even tho christianity has become the dominant religion here. personally, i don't really care what people worship as long as it brings peace to your mind :)

wowww just wowww i am so amazed by old asian temples, shrines and in general anything ancient from the past eras!

·

i'm quite fascinated by them too. they're beautiful 😃

The temple is so wide ,, your video is good ,, how to make videos like that ... ?? 😅 😊

·

it's wide because many kings have been buried 😆
the video was made with my phone (lg g4) + zhiyun gimbal

·
·

Is it possible that the kings are fat so they spend a place to be buried ... 😁😀😆

I want to know to make a video like that ... 😅

·
·
·

Youre actually right most of them are severely out of shape and in bad health because they barely move. Slaves do everything for them 😄
Most of them die quite early

·
·
·
·

Hahaha ... I'm just kidding @rounbeargames so we stay young ... 😆😆😅

·
·
·
·
·

Dont worry about it i hate kings(dictators) 😊

·
·
·
·
·
·

😯😁😁😀

·
·
·

These days all you need is a phone to start making videos!

The scenery is very nice, cool, neat, clean and looks quiet ... you know I really like to see you talking while walking like that, but the sound is not very clear😄

·

the sound is horrible today 😆
i didn't wanna anger the gods by being too loud. seems like i was too soft! hopefully the next video will be better 👍
thanks!

·
·

"You are funny😁😁, god time can be angry just because the sound is too loud ... but I really like to see you talking like that"😊

·
·
·

well, i'm kinda serious because i can be superstitious at times! 😄
this was a shrine. so i wanted to be respectful. i haven't decided where i'll go next time. we'll see :)

·
·
·
·

Owh ... yes I believe you ,, what if it is a beach, what beach is good in Korea ?? or a restaurant that is on the edge of the road, it certainly looks interesting, especially Korean food always looks good in the eyes😊

·
·
·
·
·

beaches aren't too nice in korea. maybe in jeju island? a restaurant on the edge of the road might also be something that's quite far away from the city 😆

·
·
·
·
·
·

Owh, but you have to try it might be fun😄

excelente post amigo @roundbeargames feliz noche

For me it is very nice to respect the gods, it is very important, they will bring you much peace and harmony for you brother. May the gods bless you and bring you many successes

·

thank you brother. for me it's more like a superstition and good luck because i don't really have a religion 😆
but blessings and successes to you too!

·
·

SALUDO HERMANO RESPETO SU OPINIÓN. PERO EL MUNDO SE MUEVE A TRAVÉS DE ENERGÍA.

"You're not allowed to have live fish in the pond because this place is for the dead (I guess the kings didn't know about micro-organisms)" :D
how did you film this double camera?

·

it's just a phone and a gimbal! 😄
(my old lg g4 + zhiyun gimbal + a shitty mic)
the phone has a default feature where you can record on both front&back cams.

the pond was a huge irony because plants are alive too 😐

·
·

i had no idea that there is an option in the phone for that :) i found double screen phone but i missed the double recording one :D

i got the pond joke, but it is something i would probably never think of, so it was really funny :D

·
·
·

Lol it was my initial reaction when the guide explained why theres no fish in the pond! For palaces they usually do but this is a shrine so 😄

Yeah!! Me too, not a religious person but I do respect the religion of others. And i do pray and me too , sometimes i do try the superstitious or belief of way in doing things especially when i ran out of idea.

Of ya, is gunsan nice? My korea boy told me it's nice without photos.

·

Yes sometimes i get super superstitious! I just want good luck haha
Ive never been to gunsan so im not exactly sure. Its mostly rural if im correct.

·
·

Lol! Ya, just want to get things done.
When you got kid in future... there will be more superstitious rules to follow.. 😂😂😂

·
·
·

yea that makes sense 😄
you're always worried!

잘 보구감니당~ ㅎㅎ

감사합니당! ^^

@roundbeargames, Due to issues in Internet Connection failed to watch the video but i can say that you've visited an awesome place because pictures are speaking that.

And in my opinion we are Vibration and sometimes our Consciousness advice us to behave in an certain way at certain place and for that we don't have answer because it's an inner vibration.

For sure this place holds the uniqueness and different essence, and i can say that do walk and to sit silently, this is the perfect place.

And yes, every Historical places hold it's own rules and in my opinion we have to respect it because in that way we are giving respect to that place.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

·

well i'll continue to make videos so you can watch them when your internet's good 😄
yes every place has different sort of energy and uniqueness to it. it could be just placebo but clearly it affects how we feel while we're there. it's also why it's so important to keep your environment clean and nice!
(having said that, my house is a mess btw.. i'm too lazy 😐)

·
·

Ha ha, really fun to hear these words. 🙂

The images are really beautiful, good place to meet with oneself. Good job buddy.

The place looks very calm and relaxing, full of vegetation and the sanctuary is perfect to get away a bit from the traffic and noise of the city, it's like a relaxation zone in that mega city , Like you, I am not very religious either, although I respect religions,I think you breathe a lot of peace in places like this

That they're willing to put under the
tradition the rituals ahead of their
their own happiness and their family
a little too much for me

I am very much in agreement with you in that part of what you talk about they are things that happen when people become hard-core fanatics of religions, I have to thank you for taking into account my suggestions of places to go, as this was a quiet place I think the next place It should be something more picturesque so I suggest you visit Insa-dong, I would like to know more about that place

·

yes i don't wanna go too far into religion. but only as far as it makes me feel good about myself. that's enough for me.

thanks for the suggestion 😁
i'm not sure if i'm gonna do it for the next video, but surely i'll do insadong in one of my future videos!

Congratulations @roundbeargames!

thanks, the weather was beautiful today! 😄
yes sometimes you just gotta step outside, somewhere quiet and nice, and enjoy yourself!

beautiful temples friend, the video a little shy je je but all good

·

yes i'm very quiet in this video 😆
it was just that kind of atmosphere. plus i'm very shy as well!

Saludos amigo. que dios te colme de muchas bendiciones. gracias por tu apoyo

I like your video @roundbeargames.
View of places are beautiful with blue sky.

·

thank you. the weather was beautiful indeed.
on one hand, i'm very disappointed in the audio quality but hopefully next time it'll be better! 😄

Many places in Korea look very interesting, at least the ones you've shown! Are you superstitious with the beliefs of your country or with all of them?

·

i'm superstitious with beliefs from all over the world! 😄
