Wish List

There are SOOO many things I want to try in South Korea. Let’s see how far I would go!


Places to visit and things to do:

  1. Food day in Seoul

Cuisine: Food is one of my big loves in life and culinary experience is definitely worth a lifetime. Korea is so famous for its incredibly amazing harmony of tastes. The spicy kimchi, the juicy bulgogi, the crispy samgyeopsal, the hot flavory samgyetang. Here, eating is a huge part of the culture. Among the places I have been to, in nowhere, the food culture is as significant as that in Korea, in every single daily life of every single person. Keeping the spirit of eating, I found myself a list of dishes I would like to try in the course of 6 months here thanks to those have put up a lot of lists like this online. Honestly, I don’t know where to find these dishes but thanks to my old friends, new friends, and soon-to-be-known friends here and there, I manage my weekends very well with a lot of things to try with a lot of fun and memories with those who are with me.
