Yeoboseyo Korea!

Korea is one of the only countries in Asia where I haven't really spent any time at all in. Came to Seoul once back in 2011 but that was only for an extended weekend. That time we went to the North Korean border, Imperial Palace plus walking around the city. 3 days passes so fast. 

This time I almost had a week time although work took up most of it. Nevertheless, you get to meet a lot more people while working than being on a private trip somewhere. Thanks to all the staff at Dong Sung who made this conference and trip really awesome! 

Visiting the presidential palace, crowded on a weekend 

 Just pretty scenery
But we made it better 
Lookout tower. Would have been nice to go see the city on a clear day from up there. Maybe next time. 
 The band that was playing really had a special Korean touch to it. Aggressive singing would probably be the best description 

 Just thinking back 20 years there were almost no products from Korea. Now we got Samsung, LG, Hyundai, KIA etc.

 This cinema was just beyond awesome. There were live size characters from so many movies and so much merchandise to buy. Not to mention the selection of snacks, popcorns of all flavours for the movie. 
 Second time I stayed at Aloft. Very nice price worthy and cosy hotel chain! 
Mixing colours is the theme in this hotel 
View from the higher floors is nice
 ProDentis has landed in Korea! 
Getting ready for our symposium 
And big local dinner after all work was done! 
 Overlooking Gangnam area 
 Chem had a Korean beer :) 
Shopping around Dadong-mae. Perfect sunset in the horizon
Think I found Mr. Poopybuthole from Rick & Morty, but Korean version!
All the food in Korea is so nice! 
 Love the neon nights! Reminds me a lot of Shinjuku this street 
Where do all the Hoes go? Probalby to HO bar 
 Had some spare time on Sunday to walk around, found THE Gangnam bear
 Bustling Myeong-dong street 
 Giant Macaron cookies & cream ice cream. Yum! But seriously sweet 
 How about an ice cold light bulb drink or shot? 
 Myeong-dong cathedral

 Get your bling on at Bling-Blings
