It is a Little Egret, close cousin of America’s Snowy Egret. To science this is Egretta garzetta.  Our snowy is in the same genus.  Here is Greg’s brief note: “Spotted this guy in a stream that bisects downtown Seoul near the palaces … my wife says it’s rare to see these in the city .. she noted the many fish in that stream. 백로 Baenglo ( Baen-Gno ) in Korean.”
