Korea – Places, Spaces & Architecture

I’m 2 weeks back from Korea. How was it? It was awesome! I would definitely go back again next year or whenever I get a chance to go. I made alot of friends and had a great time. I LOVED the super sour Kimchi. I miss it ALOT and crave kimchi everyday since I’ve been back. Meh.

And my trip made me realize for the first time in my life that I WANT to own a camera other than my Iphone camera to capture all the beautiful things and people. Maybe my savings will go to that for the next year.

Dissecting my trip into parts :-

1. Ewha University

I really wanted to visit Ewha because the architecture and design of the building is interesting. I really appreciated the glass wall and the interior space. I only wish I had more time.

2. Myeong-dong

I loved Myeong-dong simply because of all the billions of people shopping here. So many people from different backgrounds. It was great. Of course, also the interesting street food. My friend said that most local Koreans do not shop here cz its expensive. Contrary to what I’ve read online so i’m not too sure. But anyway, I enjoyed Myeong-dong. Also managed to go to EVERYSING and get a photo with SHINEE. Yes, I’m a SHINEE fan.

This sweet potato thing was super tasty! Once we started, we could not stop eating it! Yum!

3. Dinner in Hongdae

I had a whole list of things I wanted to see in Hongdae and I thought I would have time to go back to see all of them. Unfortunately I did not. Amongst some of the things I wanted to see was the famous Hongdae Playgound, the Coffee Prince shop, and the mural street. I only managed Mural street.

On the other hand, my friend took me for a delicious dinner and great coffee with mille crepe. 🙂

Hongdae was definitely one of my favorite places. There was a street performance by a group of students i think and i enjoyed their songs. Their song will forever be in my memory.

I loved the interior of the shop. (Pic above). It kinda has an ancient feel to it amongst the modern world. ❤ On the other hand, wood and concrete are two of my favorite materials.

What I loved about coffee shops in Korea is their interiors are interesting. Very cute. Haha. 🙂
