Day 12: Hongdae wanderings and Rebecca das Musical

I wanted to keep things relaxed on this day. I got a late start because Three Musketeers ran so late the night before and I just generally don’t handle late nights well. During the morning that I was sitting in the hostel, I decided on the fly that I would go and see Rebecca the musical and managed to score the last remaining VIP ticket for that evening.

Mostly my time management had been pretty cruddy during this holiday because all the things I wanted to see, such as musicals, I had been trying to organise so other people could come along too, but I quickly came to the realisation that I’d never get anything done that way, so SORRY to Leena and Hattie who I had originally hoped to see the musicals with but my time was running out.

Because I had read up on the synopsis beforehand I was able to follow the story pretty easily but I was also quite pleased at how much of the dialogue I was actually picking up. I really think spending more time here has improved my understanding of the language, even if I still have difficulty recalling the vocabulary when I need to use it.

This was gorgeous. If I had more time in Korea I probably would have gone to see it again, but as it is I’m just going to have to pester my friends here to go!

Day 13: Meeting my bestie in Myeongdong + BBQ party~

On this day the plan was for myself and Leena to meet Taheera, Dara, the Swedish girls Sofia and Elina and also Hattie at Myeongdong, but in the morning we got a message from Taheera that she and Dara had slept in and could we meet two hours later. Since Leena and I had been up since 8am and the original meeting time was 12, we really didn’t want to hang out until 2pm so we went in early.

It was so good to see Hattie agaaain ;A; It’s only been a couple of weeks but she was originally supposed to be on this trip with me before the sudden teaching decision happened, so it feels like so long, aahhh. I don’t know how I’m going to manage for an entire year without her.

I didn't take like... any photos today, I don't know what happened, I think I was just too caught up in the company and the SQUEE I HAVE HATTIE BACK. Oh well, next time!

Day 14: Music Core, round 2!

This day was dedicated to going to Music Core. We went last week as well but instead of being around the 10 mark in numbers we were 20 onwards; more Dalmates this week! The last couple of times there have been a few more Dalmates and that makes us happy because gosh do those boys ever deserve more attention.

We waited out the morning at the same café as last time, Zoo Café, so I don’t really have anything new to write there. Hattie and I ventured out a couple of times, and I bought a huge block of Hershey’s cookies ‘n’ crème chocolate that I could put with the letter and drawing I had done for DMTN.

Leena had been relaxing all day so she was going to head out and asked if I wanted to come along, but I was pretty tired anyway so I nixed that and ended up staying in. My intention was to have a really early night but that didn’t really happen either, despite the fact I needed to be up at a reasonable hour.

I had tried to find something that I could do on Sunday, the last full day that I had in Seoul that didn’t include a plane trip at the end of it, and decided to attempt going to the Korean Folk Village. More on that later!
