Korea’s traditional district, Insadong (한국의 전통 지역 인사동 )

Come walk around with me in Seoul’s famous and traditional culture district known as Insadong! This location is over 500 years old. It was home to many high level Korean aristocrats and artists back in the Joseon dynasty. After the Japanese occupation of Korea, the rich were evicted and the area turned into a market area for antique goods and crafts. Slowly, after World War II, this area became a tourist destination for traditional Korean culture (art, music, dance, clothing, etc.). In the early 2000’s, the city renovated the area to its current style with modern streets and building fronts. There are over 100 art galleries, many traditional tea houses, many traditional Korean ceramics and art shops, all condensed into this one area. Many traditional Korean performances happen on the streets quite often, so it’s a great place to visit for culture and some souvenir shopping. Insadong is among the top 5 places to visit when in Seoul.

Walking Around Seoul – Yongsan Neighborhood Tour 2 (용산 동네 투어) [Zhiyun Z1 Pround + GoPro]

This is a continuation of my previous Yongsan neighborhood tour video. This time, I walk around some different areas in my neighborhood on my way home. A super awesome bonus is the fact that I am using my new 3-axis gimbal stabilizer, a Zhiyun Z1-Pround. This amazing device electronically uses brushless motors on a 3-axis gimbal system to control the stability of my footage. Technically, this is my first video where I truly test out the capabilities of the Z1-Pround to see how well it handles my “Walking Around Seoul” videos, to create steady, smooth video footage. From what I can see, the video footage is so much better! Very smooth, and very awesome~!!! What do you think? Do you like it? Can you notice a significant difference from previous “Walking Around Seoul” videos? Please leave a comment and let me know what you think! ^_^




Visiting the Soopsok Hanbang Land Sauna (숲속한방랜드)

Marie and I visited 숲속한방랜드 (Soopsok Hanbang Land) sauna, near Yonsei University in Sinchon. 숲속 (Soopsok) means “middle of forest.” 한방 (Hanbang) is a name for Korean medicine. 랜드 (Land) This is a 24-hour sauna located in the mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of busy Seoul city life. It’s a neat little get away to sweat out the previous night’s alcohol or a place to relax and relieve some stress. If in Seoul, take the green 7024 bus. It goes directly to the parking lot. Or take a taxi from Sinchon Station, and tell the driver to go to “Soopsok Hanbang Land.” They will know it right away.
