By Byung Hwa Yoo in Seoul City Hall, Korea
Yesterday I visited the newly built building of Seoul City Hall. O went up to 9th floor where a small cafe was there for citizen or visitors after seeing the photos in gallery on 8th floor. Walking inside and looking down the streets through the lattice of the building I could find guys bound with ropes cleaning the round object in the building. I began to draw them though I didn't know when they would finish their works. It was near 4 pm. At first I kept drawing them.
Below the building I could see two ice rinks on Seoul plaza which opened in winter season.
A guy was holding rope to keep the worker keep the balance while being suspended.
It was very hard to capture the exact pose because they move so fast. I could be heard from the young guy that they could not stay long in same spots and they move fast to next after finishing the spot. They wore black masks for health to prevent dusts while cleaning and carried a bucket on her waist.

I talked with this young man about the hard work. I asked him to take a photo of him.Thankfully he posed for me. Seeing the drawings he asked me why I drew them. I introduced our websites. He let me know his company "TOMATO 7" pointing it on his clothing.
After I washed the drawings I had to wait for them to be dried.
I visited the new city hall building for the first time though I sketched it outside several times. I was lucky to meet them nearly. In most cases I could look up them far passing the streets or in bus. The young guy told me that the cleaning work in city hall kept during a month and it would be ended tomorrow. I hope him to visit our website and wish to encourage them by posting these drawings. Thank all of you, brave men!
