My dear friend, you did not identify yourself, but I am very grateful to your kind postcard and would like to tell that your cyrillic words look very good! ^_^

So this is a great postcard from  - South Korea!

       officially the Republic of Korea. South Koreans lead a distinctive urban lifestyle, as half of them live in high-rises concentrated in the Seoul Capital Area with 25 million residents. The capital Seoul is the world's sixth leading global city with the fifth largest economy and is the seventh most sustainable city in the world.
       South Korea is a technologically advanced developed country driven by a highly educated and skilled workforce, having the world's eighth highest median household income, the highest in Asia. Globally, it ranks highly in personal safety, job security, ease of doing business and healthcare quality, with the world's third highest health adjusted life expectancy and fourth most efficient healthcare system.
       In April 2016, South Korea's population was estimated to be around 50.8 million by National Statistical Office, with continuing decline of working age population and total fertility rate.
 
      On this postcard you may see the main hall of the Deoksugung Palace (Junghwa-jeon) which was built in 1593 year Deoksugung Palace is a walled compound of palaces in Seoul that was inhabited by members of Korea's royal family during the Joseon monarchy until colonial period around the turn of the 20th century.
