Took a trip out to Chuncheon this last weekend with friend from the States. We hit up the Gangwon Provincial Natural History Museum located on the outskirts of Chuncheon. They had a whole room full of stuffed animals. I'm assuming they were natural to the area. Tigers, however are extinct in the Peninsula.

Koreans love to stack rocks. I believe it's a sign of good luck, or that each rock succesfully balanced means a good fortune, I dunno. You can find them next to any resting spot on a trail through the woods. This one's from Woljeongsa Temple.
Here's an illustration of a typical Korean Apartment complex. Usually they're around 15 stories and favor efficient construction over aesthetics. From a distance they look like grey shoeboxes stacked next to each other.
