IN THIS INCREDIBLE HYPERLAPSE, Scott Herder expertly captures Seoul’s frenetic energy. Shot from sunrise to sunset and way into the night, Herder says, “I wanted to share all the places that I would take you to see if you had one day in Seoul with me.”

From jutting mountains to slinky skyscrapers, traditional hanoks to the crowded streets of Myeongdong, if you’ve ever been to Seoul, get ready for a huge and happy blast of nostalgia.

The most impressive part? Inspired by timelapse master Rob Whitworth, Herder had just 12 weeks to learn timelapse and film the capital before leaving South Korea for good. And the results are awesome.
