Hangang (Han River) Parks

I love watching Korean dramas (and TV shows) and one impression of Seoul that I get from watching these shows is that the Hangang (gang=river) is the place to go to meet people, for a romantic date, just be sad (basically it’s where everyone goes for everything). With that in mind, we decided that we […]

Marugame Udon 丸亀製麺 마루가메 제면 – Hongdae

Is it sad to say that we had been in South Korea for over a week and a half and never stayed out past 9pm? I’m serious! We wake us early (at first because of the jet lag) and just get tired relatively early every night. With only a couple days left in Seoul, we […]

Korean BBQ: Samgyupsal and More

When we think of Korean food, most of us will immediately think of Korean Barbeque. That was also the number 1 thing my friends and family told me to try before leaving for Korea. During my trip to South Korea, we went to three different cities; Daejeon, Jeju, and Seoul. In each of these cities we made sure to have barbeque; more specifically samgyupsal (my favorite).

N Seoul Tower (Namsan Tower): 360 Views and Lots of Love

N Seoul Tower formally known as Namsan Tower named over the mountain it sits on was renamed after a big renovation in 2005. I have been to several other towers like this around the world but this one is a little different. It sits on top of a mountain and almost looks as though the […]

Wander Around the O’Sulloc Tea Museum

Located a little further away from almost everything towards the west of Jeju Island (in the middle of nowhere) is the O’Sulloc Tea Museum. There were a couple small exhibits near the entrance of the museum and we walked directed into what looks like the main exhibit. It’s a small exhibit of tea cups, tea […]
