If there is a country you should visit in life, put South Korean in your list. No, it's more than just pretty idols and k-dramas. Of course, BBQ should be one of your reasons to go there!
When done right, you will experience the best food, view, and experience ever. Food in particular because as someone who's spent two whole weeks relentlessly visiting every single popular food spot of both tourists and local recommendations, you just can't go wrong with their food.
It also wasn't until setting foot in there that you actually notice these surprising things. For example, every guest must order a portion of food, Koreans don't speak really good English and that they provide a whole bunch of (seriously tasty) side dishes.
Here are 16 things about South Korea that will pique your interest and even help you while planning your trip there. Can you spot these things while you're wandering around the lively city of Seoul?
