Using a different lens to visit the country again.

My first visit to Korea was 12 years ago, where my first visit to the country was not very impressive. It was not super high-tech at that time like Japan, nor was it a developing country like Cambodia or Thailand. It would be many years before I would consider visiting the country again. With the rise of the “Hallyu Wave” (popularity of Korean dramas, songs, TV shows) abroad, I’ve come to learn a lot about the history and culture of the country through TV. Using that lens to visit the country again, I’ve discovered the beauty of the country I missed on my first visit. It definitely will be very soon (and not over a decade) before my next trip!
