In the heart of Korea, Seoul, there is life and youth in the air. With many cheap transportation available from early in the morning to midnight, there is always a time to explore. Even though Seoul has many famous places, my favorite place is MyeongDong.
Couple of friends and I made plans to go on a date to MyeongDong on the weekends. First, we encountered the crowded streets full of people and street vendors. The street vendors sold variety of items from umbrella, food, shoes, clothes, and so on. Also from individual stores to brand-named stores, the streets were many things to do and look at. There was places like the karaokes, where we sang our favorite K-pop songs for an hour or so, and places like the sticker picture stores, where we made cute and funny poses to capture our fun day into a sticker. Then, after all the shopping, singing, and picture taking, we went on to find a place to eat. From traditional Korean food to fusion and foods from other countries, there was a long list to choose from. However, even with the long list, we all agreed to eat the famous Korean street food called duk-bo-ki; a Korean dish made from rice cake and red pepper paste. It was delicious with the sweet and spicy flavors from the sauce and the chewy and soft textures from the rice cake.
I can never forget that date, because of all the things we have done in such a short amount of time. We sang, we shopped, and we ate. It was a full course event of nonstop fun. I really enjoyed my stay in Korea.
