    Now, let’s get a look at some Seoul city news.
    The capital’s Metropolitan Government for the first time plans to designating a quarry used for constructing one of the Joseon dynasty’s royal tombs as part of the city’s cultural heritage.
    The quarry on Bukhansan mountain – in the northern part of the city – is the first such site to have its the exact location known.
    The engraved rocks as you can see, at the site say the quarry was used to build a royal tomb in the 17th century, and was off-limits to those without authorization.
