If you want a feel of authentic Seoul, I’d argue you need to head to the north side of the Han. As I do much of my day tripping in the southern half, I relish the times I get to go to one of my favorite areas, Jongno. My actual intention was the visit one gallery I had my eye on and ended up in an independent bookstore, three galleries and a museum. That’s the ridiculously cool thing about settling down in a living, breathing city like Seoul. You can always pick a location and find plenty to do in that area which can include, but is not limited to: entertainment, food, coffee and a cocktail. And depending where you go, each of those things can be an experience.
I don’t often simply reblog articles from other sources but these homes are insanely beautiful and well meaning. They’ve taken traditional, Korean, hanok homes and created modern, sexy interiors for work and life. I love them and want to move in today! Hanok Revival ‹ ELOQUENCE MAGAZINE.
