1) EAT ALL THE FOOD!
By now, I guess readers of LoveLivfe.com would already know that I am a glutton based on the amount of food posts I have here. Of course, food is my number 1 source of happiness no matter what people says.
I love all sorts of food as long as it is not out of my “normality” range but did I mention how much I love Korean food?
Kimchi jeon, bibimbap, gimbap, soju, ddokbokki, bulgogi all sorts of chigae and many many more. /salivating while daydreaming
People says Gwangjang Shijang is a must-go for first-time visitors, so how could I not include it? Can’t wait to see all the street vendors and buy cute hanboks. :D
Of course, I believe that other traditional markets would interesting locations to visit too.
Best place to satisfy my Korean street food cravings all at one go.
From what I heard from friends and read from reviews, Myeongdong and Dongdaemum are practically a shopping paradise. Hope to find some cheap and quality buys here! :D
The sceneries are simply amazing. Jeju-island is definitely a must-go, even the local (city) Koreans are excited to go there for a short trip!
Korea is just so beautiful with all the traditional culture. From Hanok and hanbok to the sceneries to the cuisine to the people, Korea is surrounded by its history and beautiful views of their own culture. Reminder to self: Go to Insa-dong to look at the souvenirs!
Other than the traditional culture, I really love the concept of Hongdae being the central of urban arts and indie music culture, clubs and entertainments. For those who don’t know, I am sucker for live bands (I went to Taiwan in search of live music houses and ended up at a concert. haha) so Hongdae is definitely a place that I must go!
Moreover, YG Entertainment is located around that area too. 2NE1, Big Bang, Gu Hye Sun! OMG! Imagine seeing them on the streets!!! I will scream in excitement (and embarrassment, rofl)!!!
COOKING NANTA & JUMP, HERE I COME!!!
Lotte World, please wait for me!!!
I am not going to lie that I love Korea wholly and solely for its breathtaking culture because I am thoroughly a K-POP/K-drama fan. My favourites are always from SM Entertainment, even though I really like YG’s hiphop style. SM’s artistes have this ability to cheer me up with their awesome talents, funny disposition and gorgeous looks while YG is definitely the chic and cool talented kind.
My gawd! Please please please let DBSK, my first Korean boyband crush from 2008 till now, be reunited as 5. As much as JYJ and HoMin are doing well now, they were practically invincible when they were 5. AKTF!
Of course, there’s not only 5 reasons that I want to go Korea. There’s simply so many things to do there! Like cycling around the mountains, trekking, scenery viewing, wait for the sunrise and sunset, go to hotspots like Namsam Tower/Korea Folk Village/Busan etc. Last but not least, I can’t wait to take all the beautiful pictures of this country!
Or or or!!! Maybe we could do a mob dance of Gangnam Style at Gangnam itself. LOLOLOLOLOL. But I bet my friends are going to strangle me if I do that.
