First I would like to share with you why do i want to go to Korea, because of the harmonious culture that is very admirable to the Asian countries. There is Gi (Universal Energy) , Heung (Intrinsic sense of joy), Jeong (Attachment, affection & consideration). This is the main sentiment of Korean Culture.
Gi is a universal energy that is widely mentioned in martial arts like taekwondo. It is not just limited to physical energy; it extends into the spiritual state as well, and exists everywhere. It is a sort of sense of connectedness with everything around
The sense of connectedness demonstrated by gi is very well illustrated in the way the Korean people regard mountains. Throughout history, Koreans have aimed to live in harmony with them, rather than regarding the mountains as a massive natural object alienated from human life.
The most memorable display of Korean heung was during the Korea-Japan 2002 World Cup. One million people gathered at the center of Seoul wearing red shirts to show their support for their beloved team and this is very amazing how we can gather together and watch their favorite teams.
Caring for others and putting others before oneself. The jeong portrayed through Korean pop culture is catching the attention and interest of people throughout the world
Because that I am deeply in love with the Korean culture, me and my best friend have decided to go there and see & experience our self the beautiful places. In February 2012 we have booked out ticket with AirAsia X and we are super duper excited... our dreams have finally came true... we are very thankful to our family because they give us the blessing to visit Korea as we have talked about going there in many times and we tend to save our pocket money.
Pheewww the 6 hour journey have come to an end as we land at 9 p.m and it was winter the pilot said that it was -3 Celsius.. wowwww it really cold and in my country we never ever have winter and we did not have the experience in such places. luckily we brought our jackets and sweater to keep us warm. We stayed at Bibim Guest House at Hongdae and it was great the people are nice and the owner is very gentle and caring. they always help us to get to the places that we want to go. And if we got lost they will help us. people in Korea is warm and always help foreigners if they have any problem.
The days in Seoul was fun and amusing because I got the chance to visit this beautiful country. I love sightseeing in Korea and enjoying the foods, museums, palaces and the parks there. In my wish list i always wanted to go to the Teddy Bear Museum in Namsan Towers because I love teddy bears and I was very exited to see the bears and the bears are very cute and adorable. I love it so much and all the bears in that museum is handmade... what??? that is interesting because all of it was handmade.
