Cooling Down @ Hi, Ice Cream in Seoul (하이, 아이스크림)

Checking out the latest art exhibit is one of our favorite things to do, even more so now if it gets us out of this awful heat. So to kick off the summer, my husband decided to surprise me by taking me to an art exhibit entirely dedicated to ice cream! We didn’t know what to expect when we arrived, but what we got was … Continue reading Cooling Down @ Hi, Ice Cream in Seoul (하이, 아이스크림)

Paper Art Exhibit in Seoul: Paper, Present @ Daelim Museum

Lately I find myself getting reacquainted with my artistic side. I’ve always been pretty artsy, at some point I was even aiming to be an animator for Disney. Though that dream has come and gone, every now and then I find the need to draw, paint or simply create something new. Recently I’ve been obsessing over paper art. I finally created my first paper art … Continue reading Paper Art Exhibit in Seoul: Paper, Present @ Daelim Museum

Super Moon Project @ Seokchon Lake

It seems like there is a new art exhibition gracing the surface of Seokchon Lake every year. In 2014 it was the “Rubber Duck” and in 2015 “1600 Pandas.” Both projects drew out huge crowds, especially over the weekends. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to have braved the crowds to see them both. This year the “Super Moon” project is lighting up the lake with all its cosmic … Continue reading Super Moon Project @ Seokchon Lake

Jeju-do: Loveland (제주러브랜드) **NSFW**

Loveland is what I consider to be one of Korea’s little anomalies. In a country where the talk of sex is often taboo and even even proper sexual education is practically non existent, Loveland seems a bit out of place (to say the least). After the Korean War, Jeju-do became a popular honeymoon destination for newlyweds (and remains one today). Though it’s not as common now, many … Continue reading Jeju-do: Loveland (제주러브랜드) **NSFW**

100 Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo (Seoul)

Doraemon is definitely one of the most popular animated characters in Asia. For anyone who is unfamiliar, Doraemon began as a Japanese manga and turned into an animated series. The main character (Doraemon) is a robot cat from the 22nd century who goes back in time to help a young boy named Nobita Nobi. What’s interesting is that he has a pocket, which is a cross between a … Continue reading 100 Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo (Seoul)

1600 PANDAS+ Come to Korea

The “1600 PANDAS” project is a result of the collaborative efforts between the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) of France and French artist Paulo Grangeon. The project began in 2008 and consisted of 1600 papier-mâché pandas, which were all handcrafted by Grangeon himself. The pandas were all made with recycled materials and the number represented the number of existing pandas left in the wild. The continuation of this project with … Continue reading 1600 PANDAS+ Come to Korea
