Deoksugung Palace on Chuseok

I went to Deoksungung Palace on the actual day of Chuseok.  It was beautiful of course, and they had many performances, but I can't help but think it fell short of the other Chuseok performances i've seen.  The palace is nice as well, but not as impressive as the other palaces here in Seoul.

The performances were good but there wasn't enough variety.  I saw about 5-6 singing performances in a row! The singing was fine but anyone would get bored if they aren't paced.  I felt bad for the later performers, since people were starting to leave.

Below is some drummers I saw at City hall, right outside the palace. They were suspended from a crane and performed in the air! Now that was pretty cool!
