    너무 길어서 좀 시간이 걸릴거예요 조금전에 봤는데 제가 요새 너무 피곤하거든요 일요일인 오늘까지 올려드릴께요 다른 분이 해주심 더 좋겠지만요 ~ 없으면 제가.. It was a long day for me so I am exhausted now. This video is so long that I can't handle it in a minute tonight . But I'll give you Korean subtitles tomorrow.

    This video was wonderful. Hopefully, when out of quarantine, some of these sights will be doable. With coronovirus fear, so many sights look so crowded. What a lot of work went into putting this together. Thank you!

  17. Lena Ram says

    Hi, is it safe to eat street Food?

  18. Otto WHO? says

    Yes guys you done exactly the same thing we oldies did / same season in 2019, we were booked in at the Hill House Hotel / very recommended super dooper / only 8 minutes from the base to start the walk like you did at Namsan Park to the N-tower and you did hang around everywhere where we were, all on foot as this gives one the street action feeling the best and also done this at night and per bus later on to the other side of the Han River. If one is old (but good hikers) or young and may like Kpop, like Asian food and likes to dance the night away, this is where you have to go! Actually the markets you mention, they are not so unknown – sorry you are wrong about this, as this is were Koreans like to be and hang out and all those street performers draw big crowds….and the Kpop stars are within and we had out of the blue sudden occurring street concerts lasting up to 1 1/2 hours. The Koreans are just awesome!
