Sometimes, I just can’t believe how much walking I’m doing these days (this is a good thing, btw). Actually, I cannot believe how little I used to walk in California. While I would appreciate occasional kick boxing or spinning sessions, walking does the job for now, and it’s quite entertaining too which is a plus. I just wish the air wasn’t so polluted but it’s not like I have control over it… As if carrying around an air purifier would help.
Rodeo street (funny name, I know, there are so many of these in Seoul though) in Apgujeong (pictured above) used to be the “it” place ten years ago. It was where the good looking guys in nice cars were seen drinking while watching pretty girls shopping and hanging out, and where popular Korean dramas were shot. I remember seeing Jang Dong Gun filming something.
While it no longer holds the title of being the hottest spot in Seoul, it’s still filled with little clothing shops, cafes and such. I remember hitting up these lounges called Cola-Tek which was like a bar for underage partygoers who weren’t legally allowed to drink alcohol, hence the name. I wonder what happened do them. Such a cool concept.
