The Blue House ends the "Presidential Palace Era" and opens its doors after 74 years


  On the first day of Yin Xiyue's tenure in office, the Blue House, the former presidential palace of South Korea, was fully opened after a lapse of 74 years.

The footage from South Korea's YTN TV station shows that 74 people's representatives poured in flowers at the moment the door was opened.

  On March 20, Yin Xiyue announced at a press conference that the presidential office in the Blue House will be moved to the Ministry of Defense Building in Yongsan District, Seoul, and the Blue House will be opened to the public on May 10, the first day of his tenure.

  Located on the north side of Gyeongbokgung Palace in the center of Seoul, the Blue House is the official residence of the President of South Korea.

After the attempted attack on the president in 1968, the road in front of the Blue House was once regulated to prohibit people from passing freely to ensure the safety of the president.

In June 2017, in order to create a "people-friendly and open presidential palace", Moon Jae-in issued relevant policies to allow the road in front of the Blue House to be open to the public 24 hours a day.

  According to Yin Xiyue, the Blue House is the symbol of South Korea's "imperial" presidential system, which will be detrimental to the implementation of political reforms.

As a result, the Blue House officially ended its 74-year "Presidential Palace Era".
