“Seoul is almost like 'Building Forest', especially Gangnam. If you want to take a walk in nature nearby, 'Yeoksam Park' would be the best. ”
“Great barbecue place. The entrance is now at the main road rather than the back road.”
“Everyone thinks that Gangnam is just filled with fancy department stores, but this humble market specializes in cheap lunch spots selling gukbap, rice soup. There are stylish cafes filled with young Koreans inside the market where the coffee and tea are much cheaper than in surrounding Gangnam. ”
