Bukchon Hanok Village: Looking Inside The Hanok Houses

Bukchon Hanok Village is a famous spot in Seoul where you can see Korea traditional houses, hanok. Almost all the houses are privately owned so by default you can only look from outside. But last month I had a chance to enter some of the houses and see what’s inside. And it was really fascinating.

2018 Busan One Asia Festival Closing Concert Review – Sponsored by Trazy

I was very excited about the sponsorship Trazy gave me because I got to visit Busan. Just to let you guys know, Trazy is a website where you can buy all kinds of tickets and tours in Korea. They also provide a wide range of K-pop selections and of course I’ve used them many times before.

Even though it wasn’t my first time attending BOF. It was my first time visiting Busan One Asia Festival closing ceremony. I went down to Busan a day before the concert to check out the festival since I was told from Trazy that it was rather a cultural event instead of a K-pop concert. I didn’t know about that when I came last year so sadly I couldn’t explore much.

On the next day, I got to the venue and visited Trazy booth, showed the confirmation e-mail and they handed me the ticket. The process was very smooth. There were a lot of people already lining up for the entry.

I got the A section standing ticket and I was able to see the idols perform so closely.

KARD opened the stage with their great live performance and then came Favorite, April, Dynamic Duo, NCT Dream, Teen Top and Astro. (I may have left out some other groups) It was all so exciting to see the live stages so closely. And the weather wasn’t too bad in Busan. Slightly windy but perfect for an outdoor concert. Sorry if my pictures aren’t in order. I did my best to take good pictures but with all the people, this was the best that I could get.

I enjoyed the concert throughout the whole time. I hope that I can visit it again next year!

I would also like to thank Trazy again for providing me with a great sponsorship to this amazing concert.

Goodbye Busan!

2018 Busan One Asia Festival

Have you ever heard of Busan One Asia Festival? Busan One Asia Festival is a mega cultural event that is held for a whole week from Oct 20 to Oct 28. They have an opening concert which is filled with the greatest line-up including EXO, Wanna One, Seventeen, Mamamoo and all and end with a closing concert featuring Red Velvet and NCT Dream (I think more artists will be added). I personally think it’s a great opportunity not just to attend the big K-pop concert but also to tour around the great city Busan, if you haven’t been there yet. This year, I’ve heard, that more events are going happen during the festival period since it collaborated with SM entertainment. A great news for any SM fans out there.

I’m planning to get my BOF concert ticket from Trazy, a travel website for Korea where you can literally book pretty much any activities or tickets that are trending. They some good options for the BOF package. So if anyone is interested in visiting Busan and happens to be a K-pop fan. Watch out for this event or festival. I think it’s one of the biggest festivals that is held in Korea so everything will be very exciting. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment~! I’m happy to answer as best as I can.

2017 Dream Concert in Pyeongchang: Hassle Free Concert Experience with Trazy!

When I first knew that there will be Dream Concert in Pyeongchang, I didn’t feel like to go because it’s tooooo far. But then Trazy asked if I want to join its 2017 Dream Concert in Pyeongchang transport + ticket package, I checked the package and it’s awesome. It solves the transportation problem that I’m worried about the most and there’s also short visit to Yongpyong Ski Resort. I’ve been in Korea for more than 3 years, but I’ve never been to ski resort even once. LOL. This time I was sponsored by Trazy, but if I wasn’t sponsored I think I’d still take it because it’s such a great deal and the prize was good too!

Pyeongchang is located in Gangwon-do. It’s about 3-4 hours from Seoul. You may probably ask why the concert is not in Seoul. Why is it so far??? Whyyy? Well, the Dream Concert itself was held to celebrate D-100 of Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games. Pyeongchang was selected to host 2018 Winter Olympic Games on 2011 and since then it has been preparing really hard for the event success. I can’t believe that 2018 Winter Olympic Games is in less than 100 days! 1 or 2 years ago, if I saw any 2018 Winter Olympic Games advertisement I was like “I don’t know if that time I’ll still be in Koreaㅠㅠ It’s still far away” But now I’m still here and with these years passed, Pyeongchang is now completely ready to host the big event. Can’t wait for it!
