I have been there on short layovers from my flying days with Singapore Airlines. I have definitely missed the shopping, kimchi and mama-san, shopping, eating, shopping... okay, you get the drift? Alright, twenty years ago, things weren't that expensive in Seoul.
Unlike Karen, I never got the chance to tour the countryside to Jeju island. Adding to that, I wasn't hooked on Korean dramas then. Kudos to Karen for going to all these places that were filmed in the K-drama. As for taking photos with my boyfriend Lee Byung Hun (Lee Byeong Heon, well, she is lucky that she is my BFF....grrr!
To fully experience the food and culture, you will have to visit Korea yourself. This link will give you a general idea : Guide to Korean Food
Karen has been kind enough to share her photos. I'm posting mainly the culinary photos of her trip. Please vote for Karen so that she can win a free trip back to Korea by going to this link. Vote for Karen's Itinerary
