Park
“It is the best place to enjoy views of Hangang River that flows through the middle of Seoul. At the playground in the park, place your camera on any of the rides, and take a picture of yourself with timer. It is a huge open space, perfect for using the sky as background without buildings or telephone poles ruining it. Try the ramen at the convenient store nearby—the cooking style is very different from that of normal instant ramen noodles because they cook it in aluminum bowls rather than in styrofoam. Taking pictures of its steam rising up the air is interesting, too. ”

“육개장과 육갈비탕을 파는 곳인데 라면으로도 변경이 가능하고 아직까지는 크게 웨이팅 없는 곳인데 정말 맛있습니다. 집에서 멀지 않아 소주에 드셔도 되고, 오전에 아침으로 드셔도 좋아요 ”
