Hey guys! In this thread I’ll be posting videos of different places to visit in Korea. The aim of this thread is to make a guide of places to visit one can refer to before visiting South Korea. The videos range from bustling tourist attractions to the not-so-known places that one can visit during their trip.

These videos are available on the youtube channel korea.net .

You can also post your own personal experiences, videos, guides and/or any helpful video you found on the internet!

I hope everyone finds this helpful!

Cheonggyecheon Stream

Cheonggyecheon is an 11 km-long modern stream that runs through downtown Seoul. Created as part of an urban renewal project, Cheonggyecheon is a restoration of the stream that was once there before during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The stream was covered with an elevated highway after the Korean War (1950-1953), as part of the country's post-war economic development. Then in 2003, the elevated highway was removed to restore the stream to its present form today. The stream starts from Cheonggye Plaza, a popular cultural arts venue, and passes under a total of 22 bridges before flowing into the Hangang River, with many attractions along the way.

This is a night photo of Cheonggyecheon Stream. People are resting by the water.

Gwanghwamun Square

Gwanghwamun Square is divided into six sections. At its center stands a statue of King Sejong the Great, the fourth and most respected king of the Joseon Dynasty and creator of Hangeul, Korea's alphabet; and a statue of Admiral Yi Sunshin, a naval commander noted for his victories against the Japanese navy during the Japanese invasions of Korea (1592-1598) and a hero among Koreans. Other attractions include the popular 12.23 Fountain, a sculpture of Haechi (the symbol of Seoul), a flower carpet, and Yeoksamulgil (or the "Waterway of History") on either side of the square.

The statue of King Sejong is the square's focal point. In front of the statue, the main inventions from King Sejong's reign are on display, including the hangeul alphabet and scientific instruments such as a sundial, rain gauge and celestial globe. A nearby gallery tells "The Story of King Sejong," featuring a variety of materials and artifacts portraying the life and achievements of the great man himself.

Pocheon 

From Pyeonggang Land of Running Man, Hantangang Sky Bridge where Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin revealed their secret in Crash Landing on You, and Pocheon Art Valley’s Cheonjuho Lake where Jun Ji-hyun fell in Legend of the Blue Sea. Check out more Korean drama spots in beautiful Pocheon in autumn.

Changdeokgung Palace (Donhwamun-ro),

Donhwamun-ro, the road connecting Donhwamun, the main gate of Changdeokgung Palace, and Seoul's Jongno-gu District, was the royal path for kings of the Joseon Dynasty. The Seoul Metropolitan Government last year refurbished the road to make it a street of history attractive for walking. Trees and facilities along the road from Jongo-3ga Station were adjusted as much as possible to maximize visibility of the open road. The width of the pedestrian path was also widened.

      I just want to say a very, very big thanks to KPOPQ and @megacoffee  for this truly awesome sweatshirt you blessed me with. What a privilege to become one of yours FT, I am indeed gratified by your effort to make us all happy. These have brought so much joy and happiness. Your awesome product has warmed my heart.


      I’ve already done a lot of review in different kind of clothing but this is my first time in giving a review for sweatshirt that’s why I’m so excited! 🤩It’s just SOOOOOO STUNNING 😍😍😍! Can’t believe it’s already on my body 🤣 OH what a HAPPY DAY!!


      I am slightly obsessed with this  charcoal color and the entire fit and feel. It's pretty lightweight but soft.This sweatshirt is SUPER soft & SUPER comfortable 😍 — it is PERFECT for our weather here which is rainy season.In LOVE with this sweatshirt💜  glad I was able to get my hands on it & it was super cool!


      This is such a gorgeous  item, it's definitely one of  top bestseller of all time! My favourite thing about these sweatshirt is the length.The material is lightweight it's super soft and not too thick. I love how it is slightly longer as well, it's great to wear with leggings or jeans but also looks great with shorts in the spring/summer! I am wearing the sample size Small in these photos and although they a little bit loose but still nice and it's perfect just like how Jungkook wear it.I do prefer to size down in these (XS). I personally prefer a slightly fit ,but still perfect. It's all about how you want it to fit but I do recommend going with the smaller size 😉



       

      Color is very nice ,material is soft and comfy,Fitting wise good,I wanted a lil loose but I suggest buying one size smaller than your original one coz it’s men size (Just like how Jungkook wears😉 baggy and lil loose) Overall very satisfied😍👍🏻
