I traveled to Seoul, South Korea, in early September. Although I was not blessed with weather at all, I enjoyed the trip as the food was delicious and people were kind. In this article, I will write about walking around Myeong-dong in the evening as part of Day 1. As street stands started operations, Myeong-dong became more energetic in the evening compared with the daytime.

Beef Karubi Meal at Wangbijib (王妃家)
Following the previous post, I returned to the hotel for the time being, and the rain became weaker, so I will go around Myeong-dong again.
First, I visited “Wangbijib (王妃家)” to have dinner.
In the restaurant.
A lot of side dishes were served as appetizers.
I ordered a beef karubi meal as the main dish.
A hot pot was also provided, which I didn’t expect, so I was full.
Walking around Myeong-dong in the Evening
I went out of the restaurant and found the rain stopped.
As the rain stopped, there were more visitors in the evening than in the daytime.
The main street was decorated with colorful illumination.
A man with a staffed animal handed out fillers of a cat cafe.
Peko-chan, a famous Japanese character.
As a feature of Myeong-dong in the evening, a variety of street stands were operating.
I came to Myeong-dong Cathedral again.
Myeong-dong Cathedral was lighted up in the evening, which made it more solemn.
Wherever I travel in Asia, I see “The Coffee Bean”.
A performance was held in front of “OLIVE YOUNG”, a drug store.
Then, I will walk around the area where several shopping malls were located. First, “NOON SQUARE”.
“Lotte Young Plaza” was for young people.
On the contrary, “Lotte Department Store” was full of upscale atmosphere.
I just found a retro building.
This building used to be the headquarters of the Bank of Korea and is now open to public as “Bank of Korea Money Museum”, a cultural space and educational museum.
Lastly, I took a photo of a big Brown at LINE FRIENDS Flagship Store.
Then, I returned to the hotel and the first day of my South Korea Seoul trip was over.
That’s it for the article about walking around Myeong-dong in the evening as part of Day 1.
Myeong-dong became more energetic in the evening, as street stands started operations. In particular, the area where several shopping malls were located was abundant in photo spots, as show windows were lighted up. If you have a chance to visit Myeong-dong, I would recommend you visit it in both the daytime and the evening 🙂
In the next article, I will write about National Museum of Korea as part of Day 2.
