Today’s itinerary was the National Museum, shopping, and meeting up with some people in Korea…I was stunned to recognize sections of the museum from the drama When It’s Night (with Lee Dong Gun and Kim Sun Ah). I don’t know if many of you got to see it, but if you haven’t, I would highly recommend it…loved it!
And typically, I’m not really into shopping for anything beyond $50 when I travel since the states has such great bargains, but I couldn’t resist buying this artsy leather wallet (butterfly and Korean flag design) at the museum. The wallet actually looks better than I just made it sound…I’ll try to take a picture of it and upload it once I get back to the states so that you can see why I succumbed and purchased it at close to $100.
Roaming through the streets of Seoul, I’ve realized that there are a few things that are definitely cheaper here than in the states: make-up, eyeglass frames, and cute little accessories.
I’m sure there are more, but I am not really sure what to check out…any suggestions would be most welcome. 🙂 I have a free day of roaming tomorrow before my schedule gets packed again. SKKS Junkie Ginger mentioned Micky Yoochun’s mom’s ice cream parlor…is it in Seoul? It might be fun to visit…perhaps her place will have some SKKS souvenirs. LOL.
