📍 Hyangwonjeong (Korean: 향원정; Hanja: 香遠亭), or Hyangwonjeong Pavilion
It's a small, two-story hexagonal pavilion built around 1873 by the order of King Gojong when Geoncheonggung residence was built to the north within Gyeongbokgung.
The pavilion was constructed on an artificial island of a lake named Hyangwonji (Korean: 향원지; Hanja: 香遠池), and a bridge named Chwihyanggyo (Korean: 취향교; Hanja: 醉香橋) connects it to the palace grounds. The name Hyangwonjeong is loosely translated as "Pavilion of Far-Reaching Fragrance", while Chwihyanggyo is "Bridge Intoxicated with Fragrance".
The bridge Chwihyanggyo was originally located on the north side of the island and was the longest bridge constructed purely of wood during the Joseon dynasty; however, it was destroyed during the Korean War. The bridge was reconstructed in its present form on the south side of the island in 1953 but is now being relocated to its original location on the north side. The reconstruction is expected to be completed in 2019.

osamu who boops his nose against yours when he wakes up and right before he leaves. who knows that a kiss might just be enough to rouse you so he gives you the gentlest touch, the faintest expression of his love.
osamu whose hands are full but is so excited to see you when you drop by his restaurant for a visit. who is in the middle of pressing an onigiri together but can’t help the pull of his affection draw himself towards you and he dips at the waist to nose his way into your neck, up your jaw line, murmuring a greeting, a ain't this a surprise near your ear until he finally boops your nose with his.
osamu who can't keep his hands off you when he's had a couple of drinks. whose palms glide up your thighs and into your curves, leaving a sweltering trail in his wake. who tugs at the loop of your jeans to pull you into his lap while your mind races to keep up with his touch. whose hands are everywhere, nose rubbing against your cheek as he tilts his chin forward for a breath of your air. who is obsessed with the build up, the phantom taste of you on his lips, who knows well the outcome of this desire but wants to dangle from the precipice for just a little while longer because part of what makes a meal so great is the hunger.
so he pulls away the slightest bit with a grin when you reach for his lips and it splits wider at your needy little whine. and his hands dont stop, along your abdomen and squeezing at your waist, palms stretched so wide his index fingers are pressed against your ribs. and before you can whine one more time, he presses your foreheads together, boops his nose against yours, pushing against you so roughly you gasp, finally breathing himself to you for a kiss.
Yandere mina guilt tripping reader because reader doesn't want to go out with her
Here, it's not long at all, 600 words (more or less) but I do hope it's alright :I
Yandere!Mina guilt tripping you
\\֎\\♡\\֎\\♡\\֎\\ ᴳᵘᶦˡᵗʸ \\֎\\♡\\֎\\♡\\֎\\
"Y/n, I need help" Mina heaves, walking up to you and immediately curling up in your arms in front of everyone here, the most crowded hallway in the building.
"What? What's wrong Mina?" You asked, panicked at your friends current time of melancholy, the emotion surging through your heart like a vampire and a stake. It's not often you see Mina in such an emotional state, so when you do, it affects you just as much.
"My father-" she pauses to gulp down a pocket of polluted air "He got in an accident earlier-" she stops herself in order to sob, pulling herself even closer to your chest, staining your pearl shirt with her salted lake tears.
"Oh Mina" you sigh, holding the shaky girl in your arms as she can only pour her heart out. This is the fifth unfortunate incident this week, you couldn't help but feel bad for the girl. "Shhh" you mutter out, resting your chin upon her shoulder as you sway her slowly, as if you both were slow dancing at your all so desired wedding by the girl clung to you. Your hand resting on her back rubbed in circles, a comforting mechanism you weren't quite sure worked.
She said nothing, the hallway was dead silent too, you could hear a pindrop if necessary, everyone just stood in respect of the dangerous woman. "What happened to your dad?" You whispered, trying to not draw anymore attention to you two than there already was.
"He got hurt at work y/n, the roof collapsed on him when he was working on the lower floors of the new apartment complex being built down town" You almost forgot her father worked manual labour, bricklaying for a living. This seemed all too familiar though, this was similar to a story she used a few months back, but you kept hushed about it, also wanting to respect her and her father.
And although you didn't necessarily count the amount of horrid events Mina has told you she's been through, you knew it was more than you could count on your own two hands.
"Oh dear, Mina- I-" she pulled back for a brief moment catching you off guard completely, knocking you clean out of your senses as you finally see the slipstream stains down her blushed cheeks. "Y/n, please, promise me one thing."
You nod without hesitation, your brain not corresponding correctly with the situation as you speak "Anything" you could've sworn you saw the corner of her lip tilt up in a smirk only ever seen on the devil himself.
"Please, don't make me cry- ever"
"In that case… will you go out with me?" She sniffles quietly.
"Please Y/n, you promised! Or am I just that unloved by every soul? Oh why does no one like me?!" She suddenly pulls 'that' playing card, forcing you into something you don't want.. or at least, something you're not able to comprehend that you want yet.
