On November 20th, with early Christmas carols ringing on the streets in Korea, 3 YG members and 3 exchange students visited Namsan Tower located in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. Since it was a time when the coronavirus had increased again, we never took off our masks except when we took pictures. In fact, the official name of Namsan Tower is Namsan Seoul Tower, which Koreans usually call Namsan Tower....
We had our first One Shot program on Friday March 22, 2019! The weather was fantastic with the air being so clean.
About 14 exchange students and 6 YG members gathered around in the SK Global House Lobby and took the 601 bus to get off at Hyehwa station bus stop.
We first went to eat 부대찌개 for dinner and everybody enjoyed it. Sausage and hams in the stew were delicious. We’ve also put ramen noodles in the stew to make it tastier.
Next, we climbed up a very stiff, hilly village area to reach to the entrance of Naksan Park. It was a great exercise to digest the dinner we ate. The beautiful night view spot is located almost in the highest part of the park, so we had to climb up more stairs again starting from the entrance.
But there were lots of attractive photo spots along the way up, so everybody was having fun taking pictures though. The old stone walls lining the stairs were glowing gorgeously with all the lightings preventing us from getting bored.
As we arrived at the top of the park, we instantly thought it was definitely worth the effort. We could see the picturesque night view of Seoul shining in city lights and we couldn’t bear to take lots of photos.
After we finished admiring the scenery, we went down to the ground level by passing through Ewha wall painting village. There were lots of unique wall paintings and some stopped to take a picture in front of the angel wings painting which is the iconic photo spot. We took the bus back to Shinchon and finished the program.
It took about 3 hours (6:30PM~9:30PM) for this program and it was a marvelous experience.
Thank you Yonsei Global!
