Explore Seoul's Secret Garden

There is one palace in Seoul with a hidden garden in the back section, separated from the rest of the palace by high walls so no one can look in.

Luckily, visitors can go in as long as they join an tour group - and I brought you along for the ride :)

I believe this garden has been features in numerous K-dramas!

Who else wants to move into this palace ASAP?

Korean Winter Street Foods
Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: 군고구마 (kun go-gu-ma) 군 means "roasted" and 고구마 is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! 호떡 (ho-ddeok) 호떡 is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) 군밤 (kun bam) We just learned that 군 means roasted and now we learn another word: 밤 means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. 계란빵 (kye-ran bbang) 계란 means egg while 빵 means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after 군고구마 :D 호두과자 (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! 호두 means walnut and 과자 means cookie or snack. Therefore 호두과자 is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! 회오리감자 (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called 회오리감자 because 회오리 means tornado and 감자 means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow
'Train to Busan' as Critique of Korean Society
I still haven't been able to see Train to Busan for myself, but I found this article on NPR to be really interesting! It doesn't ruin any plot points (other than the fact that there is a zombie apocalypse which I'm pretty sure we could gather from the trailer...) According to the article: Without giving too much of the story away, the film blames corporate callousness for the death toll. The government covers up the truth — or is largely absent. And the crew? Rather than rescue passengers, it follows the wishes of a businessman. Sewol Ferry Reference: These themes are particularly resonant in South Korea, which in 2014 faced national tragedy after 300 people, mostly teenagers, died when a ferry overturned in the sea. Investigators found the ferry's corporate owners overloaded it to save money. And the captain and crew got into lifeboats without rescuing passengers. News media, toeing the government line, originally reported that everyone survived, blamed rescuers for not working hard enough (when in reality the government refused to let them go into the water and rescue the children), etc. The Korean president's whereabouts on that day are still unexplained. Then the MERS Outbreak: Last year, as Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, spread in South Korea, the government wouldn't share key information about where patients were being treated, where it started, and how officials would contain the outbreak. The government refused to communicate with the public, so the Seoul mayor had to go against the president and form his OWN plan to fix the problem. As a result, he's now in the running for next president (since Koreans have lost all respect or trust in the current pres) You can read the full piece by NPR right HERE. Has anyone seen this yet?!

Remember the French Press?
I have been travelling lately for work. I was in Hamburg for a few months and I shared an apartment with a roommate. To my absolute delight, when I first arrived in Hamburg I discovered that my roommate had a decent coffee maker in the kitchen. I am a light traveller and I hadn't even packed light coffee gear such as an Aeropress. I had planned to sort out my coffee situation when I was settled in and so I was over the moon when I realized that I didn't need to. To my utter dismay, my roommate moved out after a month or two, taking her coffee maker with her. "Oh", I heard myself say when I saw her packing up the coffee machine, "I forgot you would be taking that with you. Now I have to think of a new way of brewing coffee in the morning!" "What about that French Press?" she replied. What? The dusty old appliance I had all but forgotten the name of, it had been so long since I used one, was sitting on a shelf, unnoticed. I had almost completly forgotten that French Press brewing is a totally legitimate way of making coffee. In fact, several coffee shops where I used to work actually used to serve French Press coffee as their only hand brewed coffee option, and it was delicious. https://coffee-brewing-methods.com/how-to-use-a-french-press-coffee-maker/ So what was my problem with the French Press? The main memories I have of the French Press (known as a Cafetière in my neck of the woods) are from my parent's home, where they would brew a pot of French press coffee every morning that was thick as mud and and intensely caffeinated. I also remember a friend of mine telling me knowingly that you are supposed to add an extra spoon of ground coffee for every person who is partaking in said coffee drinking experience. Needless to say, the French Press wasn't associated with artisan, speciality coffee when I was growing up. In fact, the French Press is an amazing, unique and extremely affordable way of brewing extremely delicious coffee in your home, if you apply the same principles of coffee brewing that are used for other types of coffee preparation such as pourover or espresso brewing. French Press coffee has wonderful tasting notes that are impossible to extract with other methods of coffee making. Due to the lack of a fine filter and the extended time that the ground coffee has with the water, the French Press yields rich, full and complex flavors. This type of coffee contains compounds from the coffee oils such as cafestol and kawehol that are absent from drip coffee but which totally change the taste and coffee drinking experience. These compounds have also been shown to be anti-inflammatory, anti-tumorigenic and to have many other health benefits. So why was the French Press coffee I grew up with so variable? Well, the catch is that French Press brewing requires the same care and attention that other coffee brewing methods do, using freshly ground coffee ground to the appropriate course grind for French Press, an appropriate ratio of coffee to water, correct water temperature and a monitored brewing time. After my roommate left I started using the French Press every day and experimenting with recipes and different beans. I experienced a complete French Press renaissance and still find myself completely obsessed with it, long after I have moved on from Hamburg and regained access to my coffee gear at home. So here is my coffee challenge for the day: I am willing to bet that most people have a French Press lying around the house somewhere. Dust that bad boy off and rediscover its wonders. If you have never experienced the taste sensations of well brewed and properly extracted French Press coffee, you are in for a treat!
