The land of Kdrama

Korea part 2 it is! This was a great decision for the whole family because we celebrated my dad’s birthday in the land of the Kdrama. All four us are out on a Korean vacation with my dad of course, aunt Ross, Johnwill, and Ynne. It was a second time for Ynne and I in Korea but a first time for my dad, aunt, and brother.

Spending time and touring them around was a pleasure for us. We wanted them to feel and enjoy what Korea can offer just like how we felt on our first time visiting Seoul. What I remembered on what their final comment was “Japan is a lot better in terms of culture and experience. So if I were you, it would be best to go to Korea first then Japan.
