On June 23, Korea faced Mexico in the World Cup. While Mexico ultimately beat Korea, those of us in Seoul still had a great time cheering the team on.

I was invited to an event with other foreign residents. It was sponsored by #iseoulu and was held in Seoul Plaza.

Those who attended were given free gifts including a t-shirt, tumbler, and an interesting head band thingy.

The event started with various K-Pop cover groups dancing to popular songs. Most of the groups were actually from abroad. I assume they were flown to Korea to perform for this event.

There were both boy and girl groups. Everyone was quite impressive and energetic. It was easy to see that they are passionate about K-Pop.

After that, we were treated to a performance by the group KARD. They performed two of their hit songs before leaving. If you’d like to see their performance, see the video above.

After that concert, I headed over to Megan Bowen’s meet and greet. I have watched her video for years, and it was fun chatting with her for a few moments.

Overall, it was a long but fun day! Although Korea lost the World Cup match, I still had a great time watching the 2018 K-Pop cover dance festival, KARD, and meeting Megan Bowen!

Recently, I visited ‘Sinseon Seollongtang’ (신선설농탕) in Seoul. Located in the heart of Myeongdong, you won’t be able to miss this shop due to the long lines that await patrons eager to enter this shop.

The restaurant has been serving seollongtang since 1981. For those who might not know. seollongtang is a milky-white soup that is made by boiling ox bones for many hours. The soup contains big pieces of meat and is topped with chopped green onions.

The restaurant allows customers to enjoy as much kimchi and pickled radish as they’d like. Beware, though, the kimchi packs a bit of heat!

The prices for the soup start at 8000KRW, which is very affordable for a meal.
Myeongdong has plenty of places for visitors to eat, including some of the best street food in the country. However, this soup is perfect on a cold winter day, or even just for a light lunch on a hot day.

I recommend trying to visit when it isn’t peak hours, as the line to enter can be quite long. The shop owners and servers do speak a bit of English, and the menus are in English as well.

For our full review, check out our YouTube video.

Visiting Seoul’s BEST Dog Cafe!

If you have ever been to Seoul, you’ll know that there is a coffee shop on almost every corner! In addition, coffee is sold in convenience stores in a variety of ways.

Seeing as there are about 2 bazillion cafes in the city, owners have to come up with new and interesting ways to gain customers. You might find yourself at a Charlie Brown cafe, a cafe with live sheep or raccoons, or even a poo cafe (yes, really)!

My favorite cafe to visit on the weekend is located in Itaewon. It is a dog-friendly cafe called 3239 Cafe. My pups and I love visiting the cafe. I find myself with a nice Americano (iced, thank you), while the doggo gets to play with his friends and run around.

This weekend we visited 3239 and documented our adventures. Check it out!

If you’re interested in visiting this great dog cafe in Itaewon, Seoul, you can find the address in the description box of the video!
