Travel Diary: Seoul, Korea II

This is my fifth and last Korea travel diary. Sad, right? But I think I’ve pretty much shared with you guys my entire experience in Korea! We still had a full day tour before going to the airport at 6pm.

We went to Design Market and toured around the studio where the TV series “You Who Came From The Star” was shot. Yes, for those of you guys who are koreanovela addicts- you’ll love this post! I recently watched the series because of Camille and I am so into it. Now I sleep at 4am or 5am because I can’t stop watching it.

The props they used when Do Min Jun was in his Joseon Dynasty.

The carriage that was used when he saved the girl who was about to die. Okay, for those of you who haven’t watched it yet, I’m not ruining it- this is actually the start of the story! Haha. I really recommend you guys to watch it! I still get kilig just thinking of the series.

The shoes they they wore during the ancient days.

They had an area there where tons of cameras will go off at the same time and it creates a video with 3D effect (ala Matrix-style). I have a copy of the video but for some reason I can only view it online. It’s so amazing!

We were able to try “Tuho” too. It’s a traditional korean game that requires you to throw sticks into a large canister.

Here we go! Touring inside Do Min Jun’s room first. This is his bedroom. Wow! I wish he was actually there so I can hug him!! He’s so cute!

Do Min Jun’s living room.

His secret library where he keeps all his ancient books, paintings and diaries.

Cheong Song I’s room. Oh, how I wish my room looked this comfortable.

Her walk in closet that all girls must want to have.

I really enjoyed seeing the huge studio and I’m sure you guys would love seeing it in person too. Also, if you haven’t watched “You Who Came From The Star” yet, you have to watch it! HAVE TO.

We had lunch at N Table near Design Market in Dongdaemun and it was my first time trying shabu-shabu in Seoul. The taste is so healthy and delicious! It was buffet style so you can be the one to choose everything you want to eat.

What’s amazing is that aside from the food buffet area, they also have unlimited drinks, including beers, wine and champagne. Cool, right?

Last stop before rushing to the airport: N Seoul Tower, also called the Namsan Tower. It marks the highest point in Seoul.

I guess Koreans love to vandalise too. Haha.

Spotted the a sketch of the characters of “You Who Came From The Star” outside N Seoul Tower. That’s Do Min Jun and Cheong Song I!

Was lucky to see a show that was happening outside N Seoul Tower. We lacked time so I wasn’t able to see the entire program.

When we got to the top of the tower, I was out of words when I saw this magnificent urban view. It looks so busy and wonderful!

Each window says how far you are from a certain country. I’m 2,625.7km away from Manila.

You can also buy souvenirs too.

Been wanting to visit the Namsan Tower since my first trip to Korea and I’m so happy it happened. These amazing lock padlock trees are so nice to look at. It’s just like the one in Paris- write you and your loved one’s name and put it there.

That’s the end of my travel diary! Thank you again AirAsia and Korean Tourism Manila for inviting me to trip trip. I had so much fun.
