2016 Traditional Korean Liquor and Food Festival

We just updated about a Makgeolli and International Flower Festival happening in April, but we have another heads up about a Korean Liquor and Food Festival scheduled for the weekend of May 19-20th.  This one will be happening in the heart of Seoul at the Namsangol Hanok Village, and will feature all kinds of Korean alcohol and food pairings.


Goyang Makgeolli Festival 2016

The blossoms are blooming and we are mid-way through this year’s cherry blossom season, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t more flowers to be amazed and take selfies in front of!  And what better way to enjoy the spring air and newly sprung flowers than with some makgeolli in hand?  Thankfully someone else thought of this winning combination, and made a festival specifically for flowers & makgeolli.

These days, Holi is a worldwide event. It’s often known as the festival of colors or festival of sharing love. In layman’s terms it signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships.


Taste the Peninsula's Best Brews at the Great Korean Beer Festival 2016

Craft beer has been on the rise in the food scene for several years now here in South Korea. These tasty brews, which boast distinct, individual characteristics, are slowly replacing their watery counterparts (cough Hite, cough Cass) that have dominated the beer market over the past few decades.

In the past, one had to go all the way to Itaewon and its surrounding areas to get a taste of craft brews (which may or may not be one of the reasons I moved there), but fortunately, as craft beer has become more mainstream, even general supermarkets keep certain varieties in stock.

Eulalia Festival 2015

Seoul, South Korea — Danny and I visited Haneul Park 2 weeks later after its annual eulalia (silver grass) festival last October 10 to 17, 2015. Haneul or Sky Park (하늘공원) is one of the 5 theme parks in Nanjido, where it has been known to be the city’s dump site around 1978 to 1993.

There were still quite a large number of visitors although a couple weeks had passed the festival. Upon arrival, there was no entrance fee but, we purchased a round-trip ticket ride for both of us. Hiking is another option and it could take at least 40 minutes to do that while the ride is only for 10 minutes.
