The French Impressionist museum, Musée d'Orsay, has a special exhibit in Seoul, and that's where I spent my afternoon. It was lovely, especially since it turned into a HOT day (100 or so F, 35 C) - and staying indoors was a better option that running around outside in the heat.
So I enjoyed gorgeous paintings, kept rather cool, and walked about 5 miles. It was a wonderful afternoon!
The subway station connects to the museum through long underground passages decorated with perforated panels, showing some of the artifacts of the permanent exhibit. And the grounds of the museum are gorgeous - you could make a day of it and hang out with the koi, in the pagoda!
