- Korean Architecture -


About:

Like the other arts of Korea, architecture is characterized by naturalistic tendencies,
simplicity, economy of shape, and the avoidance of extremes.
What was a sharply curving Chinese roof was modified in Korea into a gently sloping roof.
Sharp angles, strong lines, steep planes, and garish colours are all avoided.
It typically exhibits a quiet inner harmony.

- Encyclopedia Britannica

It's very hard for me to spot differences from Chinese architecture. The brackets under the roof seem more pronounced and the colors are typically green and red with a dark roof. In overall though it could be seen as a variation of Chinese architecture, among the numerous ones that exist.

It really depends on what exactly it is. Temples and things certainly have similarities, whereas something like the Hanok is entirely Korean in composition and certainly looks it.
