Korean Dramas you must watch this winter

I have to admit that I am addicted to Korean Dramas. They are funny, sad, catching and just too good!! I started watching Korean Dramas since I was 15 and I have been addicted ever since. There are always new Korean dramas airing and it is hard to watch all of them, especially if you have a lot of school work to do. So I therefore take my time to carefully choose dramas that I want to start and finish watching. I have chosen 3 Korean dramas that I recommend you to see this winter! They are good and I really enjoyed watching them. She Was Pretty: This dramas was just AMAZING. I got really into it just after the first episode. I LOVED this drama! It was so funny and cute. She Was Pretty made laugh a lot. All the actors are good but I really enjoyed Siwon from Super Junior. His character was just too hilarious. What I liked about this 16 episodes drama is that it didn't get boring and they didn't have unnecessary episodes that most dramas has. This drama is really addictive and I really recommend you watching it. Yong Pal: The next drama on the list is Yong Pal. This drama brings us the love, hate and suspension. I really enjoyed the tension that this drama gave and the story was also interesting and well played by the actors. However, the drama has a lot of medical terms since the story is related to a doctor and it also get some slow in the beginning and in the middle. Other than that, I would recommend you watch this drama if you are into more suspense rather than cute and lovely drama.

Top 5 Dating Places in Seoul (part 2)

1. Travel back to Joseon Era: Visiting the old palaces when staying in Seoul is probably something most of the tourist would do. Visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace was all part of my To Do List. However, I wanted to do something different. I wanted to get closer to the feeling/ idea of how it was to live during the Korean Joseon Era. While doing some research, I found out that you can rent the Korean traditional Dress Hanbok for a day and then visit the palaces. The entrance fee for the palaces will be for free if you are wearing a Hanbok. Me and my boyfriend decided to wear a matching Hanbok while visiting the palaces. Wearing a Hanbok at the palace brings another feeling, it feels like you have travelled back in time and it brings you closer to the Korean culture/history. This is something fun a couple can do together but also friends. I do not really remember the name of the place we where we rented the Hanbok. However, I do know that there are a lot of places. Just ask a tourist office for more info. 2. Lotte World: Lotte World is the worlds biggest indoor theme park. Lotte World is open all year long and it is divided in to section, the outdoor park called Magic Island and indoor Adventure. This theme park is really cute and the night parade is good too, so don't miss it! The entrance fee for Lotte World varies depending on the time that you wish to go. Admission is cheaper if you go after 4pm. For those of you who have watched the Korean Drama Stairway to Heaven may know the popular Carrousel that was featured in it. Lotte World is connected to the big mall Lotte Department Store so spending a whole day in Lotte would be perfect. Direction: Jamsil Station (Seoul Subway Line 2 & 8), Exit 4. 3. Biking along Hangang River/ Park: Hangang Park is popular place to hang out at. You will see a lot of young Koreans hanging out at the park. You can experience Hangang Park/ River by biking. There are around 12 bicycle rental kiosks inside the park and the prices are cheap. A single bike is 3000 won/ hour and a couple bike is 6000 won/ hour. The view at Hangang Park is beautiful but what I enjoyed the most was the escape I got from the crowded streets in the city. Rent a bike at the park and bike towards Banpo Bridge and enjoy the rainbow show at night. The last show is around 9pm. Take a rest at Banpo Bridge and call to order some food like other locals do. Order some delicious fried chicken and beer and just enjoy the view of the rainbow show. 4. Noreabang: Ok, you cannot leave Korea without visiting a Karaoke room! That's it. Your trip will not be completed. I am really bad at singing but singing in a private Karaoke room is just different, it is way more fun and you can have your own private party in there. Hongdae and Gangnam have some good Noreabang places. The prices varies, it all depends on how good the place is. Most of the Noreabang sales alcohol so if you don't like clubbing but want to have some fun and drink, then Noreabang it is. 5. Myeong-dong & Hongdae: I love shopping and Seoul is probably the best place to go shopping. I have been to China and Japan before. Two places that offers big shopping places, such as underground shopping. However, I liked shopping in Seoul better because of the good quality but cheap prices of the clothes. If you and your significant other want to spend a day shopping then I would definitely recommend Myeong-dong and Hongdae. These places has plenty of clothing, restaurants and coffee shops. You can be shopping all day long here and then get some rest at one of the many food places that these places has to offer. However, you can even be eating while you are shopping, since these places offer a lot of street food. I would probably go for shopping at Hongdae during the weekend because there are more things going around. There are a lot of street performances, you can see street art and so on. You can combine shopping with nightlife if you go to Hongdae.

Top 5 Dating Places in Seoul (part 1)

1. Blind Restaurant: This unique restaurant located at Konkuk University, was the first place I went on a date to when I went to Seoul. This restaurant is in total darkness. You will eat in total darkness. It is hard to eat because of how dark it is but that is what makes this place unique and fun. You will also be given a piece of paper where you can write a letter to your significant other or a review. This place is really good for couples that just started dating or couples who may want to become even closer since the darkness actually makes you talk. If you plan to visit this restaurant, you will have to call for a reservation. 2. Namsan/ Seoul Tower: My second best dating place in Seoul is Seoul Tower. Seoul Tower is located on the top of the Namsan Mountain. This place offers one of the best panoramic views of Seoul City and surrounding areas. This place got even more popular among young visitors after the drama My Love from Another Star. Namsan Tower is popular for their Love Padlocks which are hanging everywhere and which can be purchased at any store by the tower. If you are planning on going to the tower, your best option will be to take the cable car that leaves from Myeongdong. The price for a roundtrip by taking the cable car is 8500 Won. 3. Naksan Park: Naksan park is also a place that offers a nice panoramic view of seoul city. However, this place is really nice for the night view of the city. It is kinda hard to find this place and short hiking has to be done in order to come to the top of the park. If you want to visit the park then take the subway to Hyehwa station, exit 2. While visiting Naksan Park, don't forget to go to Ihwa Mural Village. You can walk to this village from the park. It is kinda hard to find so I recommend to ask the people around you. This village is popular for the art found on the walls and road. This village appears in most of K-Dramas. 4. Ssamziegil: Ssamziegil is a traditional cultural shopping center located on Insadong Street. It offers around 70 small stores that sells everything from clothes, accessories and art. Most of the things offered here are unique and handcrafted. There are a lot of workshops offered in Ssamziegil, which therefore attracts a lot of young people. You can create something of your own and you can even create couple things. The grounds of the shopping center is connected by spiral staircases. Take your time while walking to each ground because there are a lot of unique art on the way. On the top floor of Ssamziegil there will be something similar to the Love padlocks found in Namsan tower. However, these are small cards on which you can write a message and then hang. While being on the top level don't forget to eat the poo-shaped red bean cake, called Ddong Bbang (λ˜₯λΉ΅). Direction to Ssamziegil: Anguk Station, Exit 6 5. Trick Eye & Ice Museum: This place is a place you have to visit if you haven't visited a 3D museum before.This place was packed with people the day I went with my boyfriend. We had to stand in line in order to take the pictures. Trick Eye and Ice Museum is a fun place to go if you like to take pictures while having fun. Trick Eye and Ice Museum are two different types of museum located in the same building. The ticket work for both of them. This Trick Eye we went to is located in Hongdae but there are other 3D museums found in Seoul. If you are 18+ and not shy then there is also a Love museum located in the same building. Direction: Hongik University Station, Exit 9.
