Topic - Blue House
The Cheongwadae (lit. a platform with azure-tiled roof) or Blue House (commonly syllabicated Cheong Wa Dae) is the executive office and official residence of the South Korean head of state, the President of the Republic of Korea and located in capital city Seoul. The Korean name literally translates to "pavilion of blue tiles." The Blue House is in fact a complex of buildings, built largely in the traditional Korean architectural style with some modern elements. - Source: Wikipedia
North Korean high-ranking officials finally publicly recognized South Korea's first female president — but with a gender bash. Military officials decried the South's "swish of skirt," a derogatory swipe at South Korea's president, Park Guen-hye.

The Blue House, at 4951 Rockwood Parkway NW in the District, provides the setting for the 2012 DC Design House, but it's the interior designers who add the pizzazz.
Journalists traveling with President Obama were barred by South Korean security officials temporarily Sunday from gaining access to the grounds of the presidential house where Mr. Obama was meeting with Korean President Lee Myung-bak.
