Here’s a hot tip from your pal YS that is of especial relevance to people living in Seoul. If you are like me and come from a land with low population density, and additionally, if people periodically drive you nuts regardless of who they are — then I have found the place for you. The <a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seoul_National_Cemetery”>Seoul National Cemetery</a> is next to dongjak subway stn on line 4. It’s a huge area and when I was there, last Monday, there was almost _zero_ people there. It’s difficult to appreciate how unusual this is unless you’ve spent time in Seoul and know how almost every part of the city is peopled-up 24/7.

No _bon daeggi_ sellers, no troupes of rambunctious hikers, no noisy families — no one! So if you’re about to flip out and push someone off an overpass then this is a great place to chill-out.
Right up the back is a new-looking crypt (?). They must’ve run out of holes in the ground because this place is slowly filling with jars.
