Hello fellow Soompi-ers ^^
My name is Ruthie and like all of you, I fell in love with KPOP and the Korean culture at an early age. I am a little new to Soompi ,but I'll try my best to catch up ;)
I just wanted to share my experience with all of you.
This past summer, I went to Seoul to study abroad. It was so much fun and of course, the food was delicious! The atmosphere there is exciting and always busy. I did not get to meet any Korean celebrities, but I did see some from afar when I was shopping in 강남 (Gangnam) and when I went to a baseball game (the opening pitch). Although I was only there for 1 month, I cannot wait to go back and meet up with the friends that I made while I was there, stuff my face with delicious Korean food, shop at 명동 (Myungdong), walk the streets of 홍대 (Hongdae), take the speedy subways, and visit more palaces and historical sites!!
A few recommendations. If you go in the summer, you MUST eat 삼계탕 (samgyetang) and the melon ice cream!! I could not get enough of those two things :D And of course, go to Busan for the festivals and the sea -- so pretty and peaceful in the evenings.
Wear a 한복 (hanbok), visit 서울타워 (Seoul Tower), take cute photo booth-sticker photos, and many many more!
I cannot wait to go back to Korea!
So I guess, my Soompi page can be a little blog for you Korean lovers too; lol ^^
If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask! And I'll try to post the photos of my Korea trip :)
Thanks for reading,
