On the first day, 26,000 citizens selected

for viewing entered the Blue House one after another to see the Blue House. Let's go to the site.

Reporter Park Chan-beom, since the first day of opening, a lot of citizens have been visiting, right?


Many citizens have entered the Blue House grounds and have been walking around since noon today.

I personally met a few people and talked to them, but I didn't expect the Blue House to be this beautiful.

In addition, some people took commemorative photos in various places asking if they could come back to see the Blue House at a leisurely pace.

The opening ceremony of the Blue House started at 11:37 am today when 74 citizens selected as the national representative entered the Blue House.

What the 74 people symbolize is that the Blue House has been opened for the first time in 74 years since the founding of the Republic of Korea, and the plum blossoms they hold means that the president's promise to return the Blue House before spring has been fulfilled.

These and the 26,000 citizens who were selected for viewing at the Blue House today are also entering the Blue House sequentially.

Inside the Blue House, there are various attractions such as tightrope walking, nongak, and fusion music performances.

Citizens walk through the grounds to see the main building, where the former president held official offices, Sangchunjae, a traditional Korean-style house used for receiving foreign guests, and Nokjiwon, known as the most beautiful place in the Blue House.

However, the opening of the inside of the building has been temporarily delayed for reasons such as cleaning up facilities.

In addition, the hiking trail leading to the Blue House grounds and Mt. Bukak was open to the public from 7 am.

You can depart from either the east or west side of the Blue House without prior application, and you can enjoy the magnificent view of the Blue House through the hiking trails.
