Sushi Dinner & Traditional Korean Tea House

Thursday, August 20, 2015

Hi, lovelies! So, every time I've been in Seoul I mostly hang out around Hongdae and this time is no exception since I live in Sinchon which is only 1 subway station away. I rarely go to other places since I really don't like to go by subway, especially if it's more than a 30 min ride. Anyway, my friend invited me to have some tea at a Traditional Korean Tea House in Namhansanseong which is about a 1 hour away by subway. I've never been to a place like that before so I was really excited about going there even though it was really far. And besides, we went by car so it didn't take too long to get there.

We grabbed some dinner at a small sushi restaurant nearby first. We had some salmon and I could literally eat this every day for the rest of my life!

This is the outside of the place. I didn't bring my camera so the pictures aren't that great. Sorry about that!

I was kind of caught up in spending time with my friend, so I didn't take many pictures. I kind of regret now because it was seriously so pretty and cozy there. The layout was amazing! I will at least try to explain what it was like.

The inside was pretty much just a really big room, everything was pretty much completely made out of wood. In the middle of the room there was some kind of fountain. It was so pretty! Traditional music was playing and the smell of wood was almost overwhelming, but the whole atmosphere was really relaxing. The sitting areas were located along the walls. You pretty much just sit on a pillow so you have to take off your shoes before entering.

There were so many different kinds of tea to choose from! I had green tea and my friend had... I don't know. Haha~ It was really delicious and everything looked so nice. I was actually so tired that day so this was exactly what I needed to relax. I'm so glad that I got to go there!

I really want to share more of my life in Seoul and everything this city has to offer. What would you like to see more of? Please let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading and bye for now, lovelies!

[MV TEASER] LVLUP - Beautiful

Saturday, August 15, 2015

Hi, lovelies! I'm so happy to tell you that we from LVLUP will release our first Digital Single along with a MV this August (The planned release date is 20.08.15). 'Beautiful' will be available on iTunes, Youtube, Spotify and much more (and we would really appreciate it if you buy the song on iTunes when it's released. It helps a lot!). Our small team has worked really hard together to make the song and video and I'm so thankful for everyone's hard work. Music is written by me, lyrics are by me, impa and victoria, and the MV was filmed and edited by the talented Heikki (riotcolor production), who also mixed and produced the song. Special shoutout to SEIKE who also helped us out a lot! I'm so glad that I got to work with these amazing and talented people for this project. I hope you look forward to the release as much as we do. We dropped the teaser today (check it out below), so keep a lookout on our Official Youtube Channel for the full MV. I hope that all of you will keep supporting LVLUP. Again, I want to thank our small team and all the people who have supported us so far. Thank you so much!

My first weeks living in Seoul

Monday, August 3, 2015

Hi, lovelies! Long time no blogging. As you know, I recently moved to Seoul and have been living here for the past couple of weeks. I've spent almost every single day trying to settle in and just hanging out with my friends.  It's always hard to adjust to a new country for the first few days, but I feel like I'm adjusting more and more as time passes. Things have been quite laid back so far but I'm going to register for Korean classes at a school soon and will also look for a job eventually. In addition, I even got to experience the rainy season which I'm really happy about since I love rain. As I'm getting more and more used to this environment, I will eventually start blogging again soon too. So far I only posted a few pics on Instagram, but I really want to start to blog, make videos and show you all about my life here in Seoul. Please be patient with me! Anyway, except for adjusting to life in Seoul, me and the other girls from LVLUP (+our small team) have been working hard on our first big project. It's almost done and I will announce the details very soon, so stay tuned for that!
Thanks a lot for reading and bye for now, lovelies!
