Digital technology connects the people of today with art from the past. A visitor takes a closer look at gold earrings produced during the Silla Dynasty (57 B.C. to 935 A.D.) in the sixth century at the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art in Hannamdong, central Seoul. The real-life earrings are displayed on the left, while a highresolution image of the artifact is provided on a screen that visitors can zoom in and out of.

Joon-hee has progressed to doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. I guess it's an improvement over what she was doing before, but the whole issue regarding her potentially being exposed by Dong-seok really does outline the inherent silliness of the story. Dong-seok is easily dissuaded from believing Joon-hee's motives are sinister because it remains really hard for him to guess what her angle could possibly be.

'Hyde, Jekyll and I' is the latest series in the recent mental illness trend. While it opened with some potential for a clearer focus and character exploration, it sadly soon found itself struggling with slow pacing, lacking plot progression and characterization and an overall underwhelming presentation.
