Ramyeon machine experience in convenience store

Even if you are not used to making one, there is a way to eat the most delicious ramyeon using a convenience store ramyeon machine.

Once you select ramyeon and put it on the machine, it automatically adjusts the amount of water, time, etc. to cook the ramyeon optimally.

Seoul night view spot with beautiful lights ②

It is a very special experience to go up Seoullo 7017, which was reborn into a beautiful hanging garden through urban regeneration, overlooking the Seoul’s major attractions such as Seoul Station and Sungnyemun Gate at a glance. The walking path decorated with various plants is beautiful during the day, but at night, it is even more beautiful with the lights of the buildings added to the elevated lights like the blue Milky Way.

Shopping for K-items at the traditional market ②

There are nine traditional markets around Suwon's South Gate. Among them, in Paldalmun Market, there is a whole chicken street that stretches for about 400m visited by many people around the year. The old-fashioned way of frying the whole chicken in a large cauldron and the unique seasoning preserve its flavor.
