In many of the underground subway stations in Seoul there are these Relief Goods Storage cabinets containing not only smoke masks but also chemical, biological and radiological gas masks.

Deumeu. A bucket filled with water for fire fighting purposes. Apparently the evils fire spirit gets frightened off when he sees his ugly reflection in the water. I guess for back up, these days they also install fire extinguishers.

Jongmyo shrine. A nice tranquil place, surrounded by trees. The shrine houses the spirit tablets of kings, queens and other important people. #seoul
