Six Things You Need for a Korean Picnic

Is the weather not glorious right now?!

In sunshine like this, I refuse to be inside for any longer than I absolutely have to. This includes for meals. In fact, one of my favorite things to do in this weather is picnic. And with all the great green spaces the city has to offer (like Naksan Park, the Han River and the Dream Forest), a picnic can be had just about anywhere.

And I'm not the only one who feels this way. In fact, Koreans love outdoor dining. Whether it be on a mountain hike or simply outside a convenience store on plastic furniture, they know how to do it right. I've taken a few cues from my Korean friends to get the picnic techniques down perfectly. So, I decided, why not share all the valuable know-how I've learned over the years with you guys, so that you too can have a great Korean-style picnic.

So, without further ado, here are six things you absolutely need for your Korean picnic:

6. Picnic Mat

Why get grass stains on your favorite duds when you can pick up a picnic mat at Daiso for a few bucks? These easily toteable mats pretty much last forever and come in handy a lot during picnic season, whether at the park or a rooftop party.



5. Selfie Stick

Because let's face it. No Korean outing is complete without one. Enough said.



4. Sun Protection

Everyone knows that Koreans have gorgeous skin and this is no doubt thanks to their skin care systems, which they follow religiously. Be sure to follow their lead and slather on the sunscreen, don a giant sun hat and if you're a really serious picnicker, order one of these sun tents, easy to pack and perfect for the beach or park.

3. Kimbap

The Korean equivalent of America's sandwich, kimbap makes for a great picnic snack. It's easy to eat. It's healthy. It's delicious. It's cheap. And thanks to the recent trend of gourmet kimbap, there's a flavor to suit everyone's taste. My go-to is Robot Kimbap, which sells varieties like Wasabi Tuna and Cream Cheese. Pick up a few rolls or make your own and your picnic will be perfect.

2. Fried Chicken

A less healthy but even tastier Korean picnic staple is fried chicken. But even better than the dish itself is the picnic culture that surrounds it. In many of the green spaces around Seoul, like the Han River and the Dream Forest, nearby chicken restaurants will actually deliver your order right to your picnic spot. For reals. Just keep an eye out for their fliers, make a phone call, let them know where you are and they'll bicycle it over in record speed. Did I mention they also deliver beer?



1. Makgeolli

Chilled makgeolli and picnics go together like peanut butter and jelly. Just ask any Korean hiker, farmer or me. More refreshing and tangier than beer, it's a great way to get a bit of a buzz on your weekend outing. Available at any convenience store, it's easy to get your hands on and not so strong that you'll get out of control. In small doses, that is.



So there you have it. Your packing check list for a great Korean picnic. Plan out your picnic spot using this list of the top 10 outdoor spaces in Seoul and enjoy!

A Taste of Local Korean Cuisine with Gastro Tour Seoul

These days, there are so many ways for visitors to Seoul to explore the culinary treats of the city. With a practically endless list of taste tours and cooking classes available, it seems easy to delve into Korean cuisine. But the fact of the matter is that there are so many hidden treasures tucked away into the back alleys of Korea's capital that even most long-term residents like myself will never find most of them.

Enter Veronica Kang, founder of Gastro Tour Seoul. Having worked in the food and beverage industry for more than 20 years, Veronica not only has an extensive knowledge of the roots of Korean food, but also has many connections with those most influential in the industry. Many of these include the owners and chefs of Seoul's oldest restaurants, along with master brewers who have been preserving the methods of making Korea's traditional beverages for decades.



I was lucky to tag along with Veronica on a recent tour, which happened to be filmed for a promotional video (scroll to the bottom of the post to see the video) directed by the creative minds at NYK Media Group. My friend Chris also joined and the three of us explored the most obscure, off-the-beaten-path streets of Insadong, an otherwise touristy area.



As Veronica explained the history of the restaurants, I was surprised to visit places that I had so easily overlooked on previous visits. During our tour, we were first treated to a demonstration of a makgeolli making session by one of the masters in an age-old hanok. The visuals were quite stunning and it was such a treat to watch the process -- an art in my book -- being carried out. Afterwards, the master joined us for a bit of conversation over the restaurant's incredibly smooth and tangy makgeolli (Korean rice alcohol) and savory pajeon (green onion pancake).





Later in the afternoon, we enjoyed a spread of tofu-based dishes at one of the district's best tofu restaurants. The tofu, which was made in-house, was incredibly soft and tasty and was served alongside succulent bossam (boiled pork slices) and plenty of sides, a truly stunning visual beautifully photographed in the video. It was a lovely afternoon and Veronica shed some light on areas and foods I had never even known existed.





Veronica also offers a variety of food-focused walking tours of Seoul (think traditional market tours and walks through Little Tokyo), as well as day trips to Seoson, which she calls the "Tuscany of Korea."

Be sure to keep an eye out for yours truly in the video below and visit the Gastro Tour Seoul website for more information on all her tours!

Guesthouse COOOOL: A Grown-Up Hostel on Haeundae Beach

Once a hostel fanatic, I've found myself disliking them more and more as I get older. I'm no longer up for the late night partying I once enjoyed in my younger days, and I much more prefer a clean, comfortable and private space to grimy communal ones. Of course, because I travel frequently, I do appreciate a good deal, but budget accommodations that don't compromise these aforementioned qualities aren't so easy to find.

So, I was extremely happy to discover Guesthouse COOOOL on my latest visit to Busan. Situated just a block from the famous Haeundae Beach and a short five minute walk from the subway station, it is one of the more centrally located hostels in the southern coastal city. The neighborhood is packed with fantastic restaurants, bars and even a traditional market. The location was a selling point for me, as I was participating in the Sea Life Aquarium Shark Dive, located smack dab on the beach.




When walking into COOOOL, one immediately gets a sense that the guesthouse is a place of tranquility. Unlike most hostels, COOOOL is roomy and decorated with modern furnishings, making it feel more grown-up and refined. Yet, at the same time, an open kitchen and a spacious living room complete with comfy leather couches and a big screen TV, give it a homey atmosphere. The spaces themselves seem to invite guests to mingle over a glass of wine or to relax in solitude with a good book.




The guest rooms, which are sex-segregated, are just as nice. I stayed in an eight bed dorm room which was stylish but simple, and equipped with both ondol (floor) heating and air conditioning -- a must-have in the summer heat. The bunk beds and linens were clean and each bed was equipped with a power outlet. Each also had a very large locker and an additional open space to hang clothes, which is super convenient for travelers staying a few days or more. It would have been great to have a personal light, as other guests continuously turned on the main light throughout the night, so hopefully COOOOL will incorporate this into the room plan in the future. Another problem with the rooms is that the walls are paper thin and there's no "lights out" policy, so it's a good idea to bring along a pair of earplugs.


The bathrooms were also sex-segregated, so I didn't see what the men's looked like. However, the woman's was fantastic. A separate powder room contains plenty of spaces to keep one's belongings while showering, as well as all the amenities a girl might need during her travels. Hair dryers, brushes, facial creams and a number of cosmetics were available for use, and fresh towels were consistently replaced, which is not the norm in most budget accommodations. The shower room is communal in true jjimjilbang style, which might be off-putting to more modest guests, but it didn't bother me.


One of the main selling points of COOOOL is the excellent hospitality and service offered by the owner, Chris. She was absolutely wonderful from the moment I arrived to the time I departed. Although her English is limited, she went out of her way to recommend restaurants, made sure I had an umbrella when it started raining and gave me coffee coupons when I mentioned I was going to a cafe. Her tomato, egg and cheese sandwich and freshly ground hand-drip coffee, which is included in the price of the room, were also stellar... one of the best breakfasts I've ever had at a guesthouse.




It's obvious that Chris, a former interior decorator, has not only worked hard on the aesthetics of the hostel, but has ensured that every need of each guest is anticipated and taken care of. Free maps, communal laptops, free WiFi and even a BBQ pit have been provided to ensure everyone has a pleasant, memorable and cool stay.

Brew 3.15: "Clucking Crazy" Chimaek in Insadong

One of the biggest food trends to explode in Korea over the past year or two has been chimaek, or chicken and beer. And for obvious reasons. Separately, they're great, but together... the pair is a match made in culinary heaven.

The latest restaurant to feature the dish is Brew 3.15. Located in an up and coming neighborhood near Insadong-gil, the establishment is the second restaurant endeavor of Daniel Gray, popular food blogger of Seoul Eats fame. I stopped in recently to see Daniel's take on the Korean classic.



The atmosphere was nice. Situated in a more traditional building, the restaurant is small and cozy, with lots of natural light.

My friend and I started with the Beer Sampler (₩10,000) which included four good-sized beakers of craft beer. The sampler included Ryepa by Galmaegi, along with Mocha Stout, Blanche de Hwado and ESA, all by Hand and Malt. It was a good variety, but the Ryepa, an American-style rye strong ale produced in Busan, stood out among the rest. It was quite heavy, but very hoppy and flavorful. Cocktails and craft beer starts at ₩7,000, though good ole Cass is available at ₩4,000. If you're with a large group, the pitchers are a good option.



Next up was the Brew 3.15 Fried Chicken (₩18,000). A huge portion (so big, in fact, we had to take half of it home) of the restaurant's signature dish was brought out with a few homemade sauces and dipping salt. I had expected the chicken to be double fried, as it usually is in Korea, but it reminded me more of the brown bag homemade chicken I grew up with in the American South. The coating was a bit floury, much to my approval, and well-seasoned. The chicken itself was super juicy and tender.



Half of the order had been specially made for us (thanks Dan) and was coated in a yangnyeom sauce and peanuts. Usually, I prefer my yangnyeom to be on the spicier side, but this sweeter one was still good and a nice twist on the original. The chicken balanced well with both the radish and coleslaw that accompanied it, though the coleslaw was more of a fresh salad than the creamy dish I'm used to.



In addition to chicken and beer, Brew 3.15 also serves up traditional bar fare, like fries, onion rings and cheese sticks but we went for the Totchos! (₩12,000). A mound of deep fried potato bites were loaded with meat, gravy, cheese, sour cream and jalapenos in true nacho form. I personally think it's pretty hard to mess up tater tots, but these were especially delicious and make for a great drinking snack.



Our waitress, who was super friendly and attentive, told us to save room for dessert, and although I'm fairly sure we had no room left to save, we managed to scarf down two desserts. The first was the Fried Chocopie with Ice Cream (₩6,000). Chocopie is basically the Korean equivalent of the American Moon Pie, and is one of the most popular snacks in the country. As it turns out, the chocolate marshmallow pie is even better at Brew 3.15, deep fried and served hot, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate drizzle. It was a bit oily, but had a great flavor and I'm confident these things would sell like hot cakes at a state fair.



We were also lucky to try the dessert special, the New York Cheesecake (₩6,000), made personally by Daniel. Creamy, lemony and just the right level of sweet, we inhaled the perfect slice of cheesecake, topped with ripe red strawberries and a drizzle of honey. It had been a long time since I had cheesecake that had tasted that good and I hope Dan adds this item to the menu permanently.



For those seeking a modern (and western) twist on chimaek, Brew 3.15 is the place to go. Also, it's open until midnight, which makes it a great place to grab a few drinks in a neighborhood that generally closes down a bit earlier than other parts of the city.

Joykolon: Your One-Stop-Shop for Korean Fashion's Spring Trends

Spring is upon us here in Seoul and I could not be happier. My excitement is not only for warmer temperatures, terrace coffees and cherry blossoms, but also spring fashion. And after hitting up a few of the shopping districts last weekend, let me just say that I am absolutely loving the trends for Spring 2015.

And while fashion trends are fairly globalized these days, there are a few that make Korea stand apart from the rest this year, which were evident at last October's 2015 Spring/Summer Seoul Fashion Week held at Dongdaemun Design Plaza. A recap of the week, demonstrated in this video, reveals that some of the biggest trends include fringe accents, polo collars, plaid patterns and sheer materials. Popular colors are yellow, head-to-toe white and denim. Also, last year's trend of rolled up pants and oversized jackets seem to be sticking around.



So where can you pick up these latest trends on your next trip to Seoul? Well, the list is endless, really. But if you're looking for a one-stop-shop that offers a quality collection of Korea's hottest premium brands for both men and women, then look no further than Joykolon, located next to City Hall, a short walk from the Myeongdong shopping mecca.

Read on about Joykolon's best brands and a few of my favorite items I spotted there on my most recent visit. (And good news for those of you outside of Korea: they have a website, too, so read on.)

Customellow

I think any girl would agree with me. There's nothing sexier than a man in a suit and Customellow has some of the best looking suits on the market, as their concept is to reinterpret the timeless fashion of gentlemen's attire to make the classics fitting for today. 


Pair one of their stylish suits with a crisp button down and a solid color necktie to stand out at the office or an upcoming networking event. For those looking for something a bit more casual, Customellow also has a nice selection of shirts and jackets perfect for a cool spring day. I even spotted a few colorful designs, like the sea life themed raincoat, perfect for the guy who's still a child at heart. 


Lucky Chouette

One of the more popular brands among Korean female celebrities is Lucky Chouette, a contemporary street-wear line of the Jardin de Chouette luxury brand. Their collections offers a range of simple designs with a hint of fun and funk, and have been sported by stars such as Haeri from Girls Day, Nana from After School, actresses like Park Shin-Hae, Min Hyo-Rin, and top model Jang Yoon-Ju.


I really love Lucky Chouette's colorful collections and their signature characters (how cute are those owls?!) that they incorporate into many of their items. I particularly loved the fun lip print shirts and the navy blazer, which looked nice with a pink and white button down. The thing that I love most about this brand is that you can mix and match their pieces to create a casual look great for brunch with the girls, or a dressier one for a night out on the town.



Suecomma Bonnie

Designed by fashion leader Lee Bohyun, Suecomma Bonnie offers handmade shoes made of only the highest quality materials imported from Italy. Although known for feminine and sexy styles, the brand also has a great selection of really unique and stylish sneakers. These shoes have been spotted on stars such as Boa and Song Hye Gyo.


The best sellers at Joykolon, it would seem, are the sneakers. And who wouldn't love to done these colorful works of art on a day at the Han? I fell in love with a pair of pink, white and silver patent leather loafers that incorporated a bit of this season's fringe trend.


Couronne

Don't miss Couronne, a luxury accessory brand that offers items crafted of carefully selected high quality leather. This spring's collection, entitled "Alice in Wonderland" is a line of beautifully made handbags, wallets and accessories, all incorporating the brand's signature of simplicity and timeless chic in exquisite color patterns.


Yellows, whites and blues are the go-to colors this season, as the handbags suggest. The texture of the leather used on the accessories at Couronne is also fabulously luxurious and the high quality is instantly obvious. And while I tend to use basic, neutral colored handbags, I was totally loving the metallic snakeskin clutch that shimmered under the lights.


Series

Series, yet another brand under the Kolon name, provides urban casual styles with a neo vintage feel for the fashion conscious man. Series has been growing quickly since its launch in 2006 and currently operates a total of 60 independent stores. It has attracted many followers through its support in the cinema, photography and music industries to foster a unique style of integrating function, culture and fashion.


Not only are Series' shirts, sweaters and jackets appealing to the eye, but they're also of the highest quality. I really loved the color scheme and patterns (plaid, plaid and more plaid!) of the items on display and really can't wait to see these wearable looks on Seoul's fashionable men very soon.


Kolon Sport

Perhaps Kolon Sport is the most widely known of the brands listed in this post, and for good reason. They have been one of the leading brands in the outdoor market since the brand first launched in 1973. Under the slogan, "Your best way to nature," the brand boasts a long tradition of supporting explorers to pioneer the untouched corners of the world. 

Kolon Sport's designs focus on quality, function, safety and comfort. Their wares are colorful and place an emphasis on design, but they also provide protection from the elements and comfort. Like many of the other brands listed above, Kolon Sport is offering special gifts for Chinese shoppers until the end of the month in celebration of Lunar New Year.


I know you can't wait to get your shopping shoes on, so here's all the info you need to get yourself to Joykolon to pick up the latest styles and all the hottest spring trends. Also, don't forget, you can just as easily shop from the comfort of your home at wannabK.com.

More Information: Joykolon

AXA English Website Makes Car Insurance Easy for Expats

Car insurance. Every driver is required to get it to be able to drive in Korea. And, like in any other country, it's important to carefully consider the brand and coverage, which is not always easy for non-Korean speaking expats. Fortunately, AXA Direct has just launched an insurance website entirely in English to make the entire process a lot less stressful!



So, what exactly is AXA?

AXA is a global insurance brand, with 100 million customers in 56 countries worldwide. For the past 6 years, AXA has been chosen as the No. 1 global insurance brand by the reputable marketing institute Interbrand for their exceptional know-how and expertise. So, if you are a car owner and are required to get insurance, why not choose a reliable brand that is already recognized as the best?

How can I access the website?

Click on over to www.axa.co.kr and choose "English" from the language tab at the top of the page. It's as simple as that!

Will I understand everything?

While other insurance websites provide only limited information in English on their policies, AXA includes detailed information in English, from contracts to claims. Now you can choose your own insurance products and understand every single detail about it without asking for help from your Korean friends and co-workers.



Won't it be a lengthy process?

Nope! The best thing about the AXA English website is the little red button that allows you to get a quote in just 5 minutes. Through the AXA English Website, even expats can easily get quotes and sign up for their own car insurance policies.



All you have to do is enter your registration number, phone number, and car information. Select your driver type, and then you will see a list of recommended packages that you can immediately subscribe to. Also, if you have any questions, you can simply click “Request a Call.” They will connect you with an agent that works exclusively with international residents.





What if I get in an accident?!

Seeing as traffic accidents are fairly common in Korea, expat drivers may worry about the language barrier when making claims. With AXA Direct, however, such communication issues cease to exist. Drivers can feel at ease thanks to their thorough and reliable claim service provided in English.

They even have a hotline dedicated to English speakers, providing accident reports and emergency assistance. It's not always easy to remain calm during an accident, which is why AXA offers a quick and easy mobile service for accident reports. All you need to do is tap your location on the mobile map, which will immediately prompt an agent to report to your location to file a report for you.

Additionally, AXA provides care service for drivers in minor emergencies. If you’re locked inside your car, or if your car unexpectedly stops working due to fuel shortage, a flat tire or a dead battery, AXA will assist you with its easy and reliable care via its mobile service. Think of AXA as your insurance guardian angels!



AXA sounds too good to be true! Their coverage must be expensive!

Actually, AXA provides a variety of discounts on products such as its mileage option or black-box registration. With their mileage option, you pay as much as you drive and get an additional discount for driving less. (10% off for driving less than 5000km , 5.6% off for driving less than 9000km). Other incentives include a black-box registration discount offered to those who drive with black-boxes, and an accident-free discount offered for those who drive accident-free for 3 years. These three discount programs can be combined, saving you up to 21.5%! Why not visit AXA to find more about it right now?

Busan Shark Dive: Up Close and Personal with Jaws

When I was a young gal, I had an ungodly fear of sharks. Perhaps it was the animatronics at the Jaws ride at Universal Studios, or the threat constantly reiterated by the warning signs on the beaches of Destin, a beachside town in Florida where my family and I spent our summer vacations. So, it came as a surprise to me that I had an extreme desire to swim with them when I learned of the opportunity offered by the Sea Life Aquarium in Busan.

So, I left my nerves (and inhibitions) in Seoul and headed down to the southern coastal city to take a dive with Aquatic Frontier, a foreigner-owned and -operated diving company based just outside of Seoul.



Upon arrival, I was greeted by the bubbly Sammy, my scuba instructor for the day, as well as a British couple who would also be participating in the dive. We were brought to a room where we were briefed in detail regarding the indemnity form we were all required to sign, which basically stated we wouldn’t (or couldn’t) sue, should we happen to lose an arm, end up with a collapsed lung, or find ourselves in some other similar situation.

This had the same effect on my nerves as hearing side effects of a medicine or a medical procedure from a doctor does. But, I did feel reassured learning that in the history of the program, there had been zero serious issues. Sammy was very confident in her instructing abilities, and assured us we would be fine.

We then changed into wet suits and donned our gear, which was ridiculously heavier than I imagined it to be. Fortunately, the buoyancy of the water made the weight bearable.



Sammy taught us the basics of scuba diving: how to deflate our BCD (scuba suit), how to empty our masks should they fill with water and most importantly, how to breathe. While this step seemed as if it would be the easiest, it was one of the more unnatural things I’ve ever had to do. The strange breathy noise the regulator produced, as well as having to practice breathing face to face with a giant sea turtle made me immediately uncomfortable; I all but gave up a few minutes into training. I’m really glad that I stuck with it, though, as I ended up getting it after a few more attempts.

I was convinced I wasn’t ready but followed Sammy into the tank. When my feet touched the bottom of the tank, I instantly felt in control, knowing going back up wasn’t an option. After checking our air gauges and exchanging “A-OK” hand gestures, Sammy proceeded in taking us for a stroll around the tank.



Blacktip reef sharks, whitetip reef sharks and sand tiger sharks gracefully glided through the turquoise water, inches away from our faces, obviously disinterested in who we were and what we were doing in their territory. I took comfort knowing that these species of sharks aren’t particularly attracted to mammalian blood, but the mere sight of their menacing jaws and powerful bodies sent a rush of adrenaline through me. Ginormous Queensland groupers, ancient sea turtles and other varieties of alien-like creatures only contributed to the rush I was experiencing, keeping me wide-eyed, seemingly unaware of the waving families on the other side of the glass.



Although our walk was approximately half an hour, it felt like minutes; I’m sure the adrenaline had something to do with that. As we made our way out of the tank, it felt strange to experience gravity once again. My lips were purple by this point and I had lost all feeling in my toes, so I thoroughly enjoyed the hot shower that followed.





After the shark encounter, I took a walk around the aquarium. It had a few exhibits worth checking out, like the touch tanks and rehabilitated porpoises but honestly, none of them could compare to what I had just experienced. And while it was nice to observe the animals from behind a sheet of glass, nothing can quite hold a candle to the strange and exhilarating experience of being a part of the underwater world, walking alongside nature’s most feared predators and majestic creatures.



More Information: Busan Shark Dive / Aquatic Frontier

Dates: The dive dates are pre-scheduled, but usually held on Saturdays and Sundays. You must make a reservation to participate in the dive. Check the schedule here.

Price: ₩150,000 (includes ₩70,000 deposit)
