II. INTRO

The familiar place you`ve been listening from PSY`s song. The place you saw from Avengers 2. The place where Koreans gather.

Yes, I will be taking you to Gangnam Station.

As a tourist, the desire to know what is trending in Korea is natural. Throughout this trip, I will introduce you to exciting activities and mind-blowing foods that have earned domestic popularity.

 


III. DESCRIPTION

1. ARRIVING

 

I`ll meet you at the Gangnam Station Exit 10!

 

2. SHOPPING and EATING STREET FOODS

Let`s start with an activity! I will lead you to various stores in Gangnam Station. You can start from stationery stores to cosmetic stores.

As a local here, I can recommend the right clothes or products that fit you.

Need some advice? I`ll always be there for you to advise you like a friend. 

Feeling hungry after shopping? We`ll visit food trucks and eat grilled chicken!

 

3. KOREAN PHOTO BOOTH

Want to have a souvenir of this trip? I`ll take you to a Korean photo booth Koreans are going mad for. 

This photobooth is typically called 4-cut life (인생 4컷; In-sang-nae-cut). 

Younger generations in Korea use "life (인생; In-sang)" next to a noun to emphasize how good something is, as a slang. Let`s take some In-sang photo during this activity!

 

4. KOREAN BARBEQUE

I know you`ve been waiting for this. I know a place where they sell nice pork with diverse array of `ssam`. I will tell you how to eat them extensively! My friends call me the "Virtuoso of Ssam(Wrapping)"!

If you want to know more about the restaurant we will visit, go to http://www.ungteori.com/

You can enjoy pork belly, soybean paste stew, and ssams! 


5. KOREAN DESSERT CAFE

Want to try Injeolmi* shaved ice? I`ll guide you to them! 

(*Injeolmi is a variety of ttoek, or Korean rice cake, made my streaming and pounding glutinous rice flour.)

6. HEALING CAFE

Are you into this trip? Nice choice! :)

But this activity will make you even more into your choice. For an hour, you will experience Korean massage chair and oxygen zone with rejuvenating drinks. This healing activity will kick away stress and tiredness from traveling. 

Healing Cafe is a relatively new concept of cafe that is trending among younger generations. It is also referred as "relaxation cafe".
