Lucky China (幸運大飯店)

I headed to Incheon’s Chinatown again during my recent trip to Korea (partly because I really wanted to eat some great jjajangmyeon again), but instead of heading to Cheonghwawon (中華范) , we decided to try another restaurant.

While searching for places to go in Incheon, I chanced upon this island that was just a little way offshore, but accessible by bus in Incheon, so I put this on my list and headed the next day. Plus point: This was the filming location for Descendants of the Sun, Running Man & Two Days […]

The National Museum of Korea

What better place to learn more about a country’s history and culture from than its national museum? Another plus point: this is one of the many filming locations for Running Man (Episode 48). The National Museum of Korea is the largest in Korea. The best part about it is that it’s FREE ADMISSION. Yes, you read that right! […]
