Chinese acrobats to make you flipNothing is more inviting than beautiful outdoor weather. Our reporter Park Soo-mee suggests that we go to a circus! The Dongchun Circus is the oldest and the very last of its kind in Korea. This year, it performs with a Chinese acrobatic troupe in the satellite city of Bucheon in Gyeonggi province, about an hour’s drive from downtown Seoul ― so it’s a nice day trip out of the capital.
If that’s too much action, pay a quiet visit to Galerie Bahk in southern Seoul to see the latest works by the photographers-turned-artists Doug and Mike Starn, who happen to be twins.
The dining scene in Seoul is again changing. Park, a new lounge specializing in Asian cuisine, is the latest addition along Cheongdam-dong’s restaurant row. Park closes at 2 a.m., meaning no more pointed stares from waiters, no more annoying “Auld Lang Syne.” Night owls, vampires and nocturnal party animals can comfortably while away evenings while enjoying delicious full-course meals with wine, cocktails and sake in beautifully decorated rooms.
