I haven’t had an article for long, but since I am working, my time is so limited (spoiler alert: I am writing this article from work) Also, I want to add that all of you that work and also take care of a house and a husband, you are the MVPs.
So, since I have only the weekends free, I go on dates with my husband. Last weekend we went to Insadong. It is relatively close to Gyeongbokgung so you can visit the place.
What you will find there? Insadong is very famous amongst tourists. There is many shops to buy souvenirs and clothes, especially hanboks (Korean traditional costume) You can rent a Hanbok or, you can buy one, traditional or modern. I really want to buy one but I believe I will look so weird to Koreans if I walk on the streets with it…Like, If a foreigner was walking down the streets in Greece wearing our traditional costume, it would not get unnoticed.
Also, you can find many kpop related things as well as Joseon era related things. I really like the paintings and accessories of Joseon era personally, and have you ever seen a historical Korean drama where the women wear a double jade ring? I was searching for that since for ever and the case was that it would be either expensive, or non existent..BUT, this time I found one and of course I bought it! I like It so much, however I want to have an edit here, ever since I wore the rings, honestly I was having like bad mornings losing the subway forgetting my mask forgetting my glasses forgetting my card to the subway (and yes all at the same day) so today I did not wear it (what is this jinx haha)
Insadong also has a lot of cafes and restaurants. One of the reasons we went to Insadong is because I wanted to go to a tea house, so we went to one that outside it looks like a hanok (Korean traditional house) and they serve traditional teas and traditional Korean desserts. The one I went had many rooms with different designs, so the room we went, my husband said it looks like Korea in 60s-70s.
After the tea, we took a walk on the streets and I saw they are having an exhibition of the kdrama Hotel del Luna, and it is near my workplace so I think of going and doing a blog about it. (tell me on the comments if you would like me to)
