  1. Bingsu isn’t just in Korea it’s actually in New York.
    It’s in spa castle. But since I’m going to Korea might as well eat it

  2. I ate the BHC cheese chicken today. Great recommendation. The taste is amazing, but what confused me was how their chicken is much better than American chicken. America doesn't have the right to use "tender" to describe their chicken. This BHC chicken really does surprises you with its tenderness.

  3. Kimdao . Thanks so much for this video! I really appreciate this bc this vid is very useful for me ..specially bc I don't know much about korean places to visit.. I hope to visit seoul soon????

    I dont wanna ruin you guy's feeling..
    bur to be honest, kimbab is not the Korean sushi…..

    sushi is Japanese food
    well Kimbab and sushi are diffirent food each other

    therefore Kimbab is just Korean food with salted sea weed, rise, meet(sometimes tuna) and lots of kind vege
    It's totally diffirent with sushi anyway

    There are sushi looks like a Kimbab, the name is California roll in Japan ?

    Anyway thanks for announcing Korean culture!!

  5. Me and my Friend are going this December I actually cannot wait to experience the culture and food and just everything else.

    Thank you for a helpful video 😀

  6. You're the champion of making videos like this. A1 work fam. ?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tsNgyaYodk&t=12s

  7. 07:22 i got my wallet stolen at jimjim bang. Always make sure to have your keys wrapped around your arms when you go to sleep! I made a stupid mistake by putting the keys right next to me while asleep lol

  8. Hongdae, and Gangnam for food, drinks, and people.
    Itaewon is the expat area (go on the Street behind the Hamilton Hotel) multinational food, drinks, shopping, people, and lots of English.
    Myeong-dong and Dongdaemun for shopping and sightseeing.
    Subway is super easy with colors and numbers. Taxis are cheaper than the US, Europe, or Japan.
    Waze is good for navigation, Kakao is Hangouts/Skype/maps get it, and Google Translate is take picture functional for translation. Think menu.
    Have fun and enjoy.

  11. Ong thank you! Me and my cousin are planning to go to Korea for college and get used to a different life style and experience a whole new …..culture?, Tradition? ?I really don’t know? We also want to learn the Korean language as well and korean money. Me and my cousin are still a bit young so we decided that we would wait till we are older and we have to wait 7 years ? We are all really excited and decided to do a countdown on the years until we can get outta America ??We also thought of learning the language while we wait for the seven years??Thank you for this!??

  12. I’m in Seoul right now and I tried to find that ice-cream place mellieno, but when I got there I found out it was closed for good… I really want to try that tomato flavored one. Does anyone know of a similar shop?

  13. yall im going on a plane FOR THE FIRST TIME next year on december and we're going to korea AND its winter which is my fav szn so im v excited

  14. Are there any good recommendations for places that serve for veg food? Everybody in my family eats non-veg except for my mother and its kind of a bummer if she gets left out

  15. Kim your videos are so helpful! I am planning on going to Seoul in a year & a half. It will be my first time traveling to Korea & I am so excited. I used your videos on what to do in Tokyo for reference when I first went. There’s no doubt that this video will be most helpful. ???

  16. Great video. This video was the primary source I used for my trip. You have amazing talent. I spent about an hour taking notes. In the future, if you can include notes it would be very helpful and then you can use on your blog as well 🙂

  17. i'm planning to go on a 3 months vakation to coutnry's. i will barely take any stuff with me, only the most important stuff like toothpaste, toothbrush, a hair brush and hairmousse, deodorant, earpuds, sunglasses, pills, my laptop, camera, charger, laptop charger, camera battery's, power bank, my Phone (and my other 5 just in case), clean undies (obviously), socks, and the most important clothing i need. for warm days: shorts, and 2 T-shirts. for average days: a cute blousse, and a nice jeans. for cold days: my oversized sweater, and again, jeans. i will also take warm socks with me on cold days and flip flops for warm days. i will also take good and strong shoes with me. and a nice book for in the plane. and a bottle of water.

    what will i put in the case,
    1: sweater,
    2: jeans,
    3: lots of socks,
    4: my laptop,
    5: all my chargers and battery's,
    6: my T-shirts,
    7: toothbrush and toothpaste,
    8: deodorant,
    9: clean undies,
    10: shorts,
    11: blousse,
    12: some warm socks,
    13: flip flops,
    14: hairbrush and hairmousse.

    what goes in my bag,
    1: my Phone,
    2: my wallet,
    3: my powerbank,
    4: medication pills,
    5: a bottle of water,
    6: my camera and one extra battery,
    7: earpuds,
    8: sunglasses,
    9: book.

    what i will wear on the plane,
    1: long jeans,
    2: t-shirt or a blousse,
    3: nice and strong shoes,
    4: average socks,
    5: a leather (or a denim) jacket for if it's cold.
    6: a nice hat.

    make-up isn't that important so let's forget about that. and why i wrote all this, is just in case you want to go on this long a vakation as well. then you will have an idea of what you should bring with you, or you just have a complete list of what to take with you and what to wear (average clothing: not too cold, not too warm) so you don't have to make that list all by yourself. of course whats also very handy to take with you is a lot of money when you go on vakation. and it's most fun to take friends or just one friend with you. that'll make it more fun, but of course you won't pay anything for them because you need that money for yourself. you're welcome.
