Wow... what a captivating set of photos. Thanks so much for sharing! "Lil Bliss 3" may be my absolute favorite... hauntingly beautiful.

^1,821ft Lotte World Tower. For decades Seoul didn't build any supertalls due to the use of landmarks for potential North Korean bombing raids. Then obvs they thought fuck it, let's do the burning eye of Sauron

Shimmeringly beautiful, skylines are best captured in these kinds of light conditions.

Love those down-to-chair scenes with all those street details and people and faces (I can see their makeups on)

No need, unnecessary, the city is so close to the border, they just setting up distance range...

Nice set. Seoul is such an underrated place, amazing like Tokyo. There are lots of skyscrapers yet just as many serene lowrise neighbourhoods and historic sights mixed in.

Very nice photos! It's nice to see an Asian city and a city not often featured on these threads.

I've still never managed to make it to Korea. Your photos always capture the 'living' look and not just the pretty buildings.

Amazing as always.

That Veronica Seoul is one piece of ace... I know from experience. These photos are also ace. Acetastic.

i always wonder if visitors from these big asian cities where they have old neon districts just shrug when the visit times square.
