It’s day 4 and we started the day a bit early than the other days. Why? Because we were bound to catch the train from Seoul to Gangneung and join the Go Pyeongchang 2018 with Lee Dong Wook and watch a Winter Olympics Ice Hockey match between Czech Republic and Japan. The Go Pyeongchang 2018 with Lee Dong Wook is an event attended by fans of Lee Dong Wook and starts from Cheongnyangri Station and ends with the Ice Hockey match. Not knowing what to expect, we were greeted by Soohorang and Bandabi at the train station.

There were many people at the train station. Normal commuters and those who participated in the Fan Meet with Lee Dong Wook. Upon arrival, we were given a snack box with Lee Dong Wook’s sticker on the box, and a red shawl (psst, Ji Eun Tak’s signature shawl from the drama Goblin). We were also asked to put on the shawl and for today, everyone will be Ji Eun Tak (we imagined that Lee Dong Wook will be waiting for us at Gangneung station but as expected, he was not there 😅).

There was a lot of photographers as the Hallyu train is joined by fans not only from Malaysia, but from all over. We boarded the train and it’s just like the usual KTX train, the only difference was the standees of Lee Dong Wook and from the drama was everywhere, setting up the atmosphere for the Hallyu experience.

The trip to Gangneung was truly a fun experience, as people decked in Lee Dong Wook’s character from the drama Goblin (Grimreaper – black coat, shirt, pants with black hat) showed up and organized games while giving winners Bandabi and Soohorang as the prize. Not enough with games, a kpop team came out next, enticing us with dance routines from Big Bang and such.

After about an hour plus on the fun train, we reached Gangneung, and was greeted by more photographers – we were a bit overwhelmed as usually we were the ones behind the lenses 😅. We were then whisked off to a famous market – Jungang Songbam Danonuri Traditional Market, before heading to Baekje Samgyetang to try traditional samgyetang.

Samgyetang is chicken soup cooked with ginseng, consisting of young chicken, filled with garlic, jujube, rice and ginseng. It is normally eaten on a hot summer day to promote health. Samgyetang is particularly famous during three distinct days in the lunar calendar – believed to be the hottest and most sultry days of summer in Korea.

After lunch, we were taken to Gangneung Arts Centre for the fan meeting with Lee Dong Wook. We were planning to just sit and stare at Lee Dong Wook because we thought that we would not understand anything but to our surprise, we were each given a small device which translates what the man of the hour says. Cool huh! Strapped in to our seats, we were ready to meet Lee Dong Wook! Before the event started, there were multiple announcements that pictures are not allowed, be it using camera or your camera phones. That was when all fans had to keep all media technology in their bags.

At 3pm, Lee Dong Wook showed up. In the next few hours the actor shared personal pictures and played games with several lucky fans. The fans were give ‘Wook Candy’ and selfies with the star – LUCKY fans. Other fans did not leave with an empty hand, other than memories with the actor, each fan were given Asian tour picture collection and limited ambassador name cards.

After the fan meet, we moved to the Ice Hockey stadium to catch a match between the Czech Republic team and Japan. The match was a fierce match from the beginning but spectators attention was diverted for a while as Lee Dong Wook showed up to watch the match with fans. The match ended with Czech Republic winning 2-0.

With the ice hockey match, our schedule in South Korea, mainly Pyeongchang ended. We had a wonderful time getting to know the beauty of Pyeongchang, making new friends and getting in the sport spirit, cheering for a team and enjoying the match.

We would like to once again thank Korea Tourism Organisation for organising such a wonderful trip.

It’s Day 3 in our travelogue and up on the list today, Daegwallyeong Samyang Sheep Farm! Daegwallyeong Samyang Sheep Farm is a privately owned ranch in Pyeongchang.  You may be thinking, Samyang? Isn’t that the famous spicy instant noodles that went viral? Yes! You’re correct, and psst, they sell instant noodles there too, woohoo!

Our ride up to Mount Daegwallyeong was full of awe as we can see thick snow left and right. It was not easy for the bus to go up too as it was slippery from the melting ice. What was meant to be a 10 minutes ride up became 20 but we made it up and it was a sight to behold. Mountains as far as the eye can see and covered with snow, not to mention that it was freezing cold and the wind was blowing so hard, we felt like we would be blown away! But the view was totally worth it. We tried to make our versions of snow angels but we failed miserably, so we won’t be sharing any pictures of that 😅.

After playing with snow for a while, we made our way to the sheep farm to meet some of the cutest beings who inhabit the place. Most were still in their stable as it was too cold for them to be running around, and a few was waiting in the pen to greet us. While most that were in the pen are adults, we can’t help but cooed at the cute lambs that were there, trying to get past the adults for some feed.

Feeding the sheeps made us hungry, we made our way to Jeonggangwon (정강원), Traditional Korean Food Culture Experience Center to try our hand at making our own Bibimbap (Korean Mixed Rice). As we arrive, the place feels like a house that you see in Korean dramas – it kinda remind us of the drama Cinderella Stepsister, staring Moon Geun-young, Chun Jung-myung, Seo Woo, and Taecyeon (it is not one of the filming location ya 😉 ). With a big arch welcoming us, as we walk further to the main building, on our right we can see lots of big earthenware crocks (옹기), and again, we imagined another scene from another cooking drama (we watched too much drama 🤣). The earthenware crocks are used to store and preserve many things, such as soybean paste, soy sauce, hot pepper paste, fermented fish, Korean alcohol Makgeolli, and the many different types of Kimchi. Made from clay, the earthenware crocks are great for fermentation as they have very small holes (imagine microscopic size), that allow the ingredients to breath.

earthenware crocks

Many earthenware crocks can be found that stored many different sauces and kimchi

We then entered the main hall, and in the front centre of the hall, there was a big pot and many different kinds of sauteed vegetables at the side. The vegetables are, among others bean sprouts, spinach, carrot, and mushrooms. There were also fried egg whites and yellow, fernbrakes, and dried bellflower roots. To make the bibimbap, rice is mixed with the vegetables, along with Korean hot pepper paste (gochujang), sesame oil, and sesame seed. You may also add meat of your choice. Once it is all mixed, you may enjoy your bibimbap. Along with our bibimbap, we were served with pajeon (pancake) and several different kinds of banchan. It was such a delicious and fulfilling meal.

Put all the vegetables on the rice

Ready to mix!

It’s not easy as the wooden mixer is actually heavy!

The many different banchan and pajeon on our table

Yummy bibimbap

After finishing our meal, it was time for us to make our way to Seoul and check in at the hotel. That marks the end of our 3rd day. What’s next on our 4th day? Look out for our next article!

We would like to thank Korea Tourism Organization for organizing our trip!

Day 2 of our Travelogue! Up in the list today, a trip to Anmok Beach, famous for it’s coffee street. If you’ve read our Pyeongchang Winter Olympics posts before, you would know there is a street filled with coffee places, yes, heaven for all you coffee lovers out there!

Less than 5 minutes away from our accommodation, lies white sandy beach and the bluest sea you’ve ever seen. The line of shops on the street facing the beach is full of coffee establishments, which you can pick either by coffee specialty (some with Spanish roasts, Brazilian roasts), facility (rooftop hammocks, lounging area), view and much more. Almost all of the shops roasts their own coffee beans.

Our 2nd stop for today is lunch at 채선당Shabu (Chaesundang Shabu), a place for Shabu-Shabu, a Japanese cuisine but also famous in Korea. The usual menu for Shabu-Shabu is beef but we tried the seafood meal and it was yummy! The meal was served with vegetables and a bowl of rice to make porridge at the end of the meal.

We then visited Woljeongsa Temple which is  located on the eastern slopes of Odaesan in Pyeongchang. The temple was founded in 643. The walk up to the temple was a very scenic walk among Fir lined trees.

Next destination for the day is for dinner and we tried Dried Pollack which is a specialty in Gangwon-do. Hwangtae or 황태 is a yellow-colored dried pollock and the province is one of the largest producing area in South Korea.

Delicious dried pollock and side dishes

The area, located up the slop of Mount Daegwallyeong, with clean air making it a very suitable environment to dry pollock. Hwangtae is dried by hanging on wooden structures, ans with the weather, the fish will be frozen and unfrozen day and night which turns the fish into a yellowish color and makes them tender.

Before ending the day, we were treated to an EDM Festival with DJ Hanmin at Yongpyong Ski Resort. We partied for a while before bidding the day good night, and be ready for another full day journey the day after.

Arrival, Incheon International Airport Terminal 2

Not many people know this but there’s a new airport in South Korea, and it’s challenging the airport that was named the best airport for 12 consecutive years, Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 to be even better.

Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 opened January 18, 2018þ and serves flights from Korean Air, Delta Air, Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Although the built is similar to Terminal 1, Terminal 2 is definitely swankier and, allows travelers to check-in faster with its increased number of kiosks and self-bag drop services.

8.30 am, Journey to Nami Island

From the airport, we moved to one of the most famous shooting locations ever in South Korea – Nami Island. Made famous as one of the iconic shooting locations of the drama that puts Hallyu on the map, Winter Sonata stars Bae Yong Jun and Choi Ji Woo as lovers who had to endure all the hardships.

Famous for it’s beautiful tree-lined roads, many fun activities can be held at the island including cycling, with facilities for water activities including swimming pool, water sports and water skiing.

Dakgalbi, yummy!

Dakgalbi, a famous spicy stir fried chicken is made by stir frying marinated diced chicken in a gochujang based sauce. Best served with vegetables, rice and tteok (rice cake).

1.30 pm, trip up to Haslla Art World in Gangneung

With our full stomach, we made our way up to Gangneung, which took about 2 hours from Nami Island. The trip would have been a tiring one but the scenery on the way up keeps us awake. Hills and mountains covered with snow fills us with awe. And of course, making it colder.

Haslla Art World

We reached Haslla Art World around 4pm and once again in awe. From the hills and mountains on the way here, we were welcomed by the bluest sea side view.

Surrounded by nature, Haslla Art World incorporated it’s natural features with an Art Garden that contains the Pine Tree Garden, Time Hall, Wetlands, Field Garden, Sea Garden and Fun Garden.

Pinocchio?

6.00 pm, dinner

One final stop before we head to the hotel to rest for the day, is dinner! We were served a full-course Korean style meal at a traditional restaurant. The Korean style meal, 한정식 (Pronounced Han-jeong-sik) is served with an array of side dishes called 반찬 (banchan).
