Discover Seoul, South Korea seen through the eyes of a local artist in, “A Day in the Life of Jieun Park.” This week, Jieun offers a peak into her daily life in the city, sharing her favorite spots along the way…
I start my day by the computer to check email and do Pilates.
For breakfast, I eat red bean soup because Koreans eat red bean soup during the winter solstice.
Getting around is pretty easy, I usually walk. I prefer to take the subway. If I have time, I like to visit Yeonnam-dong and Samcheongdong-gil in Seoul.
I like Yeonnam-dong and Samcheongdong-gil in Seoul because there are many charming restaurants, cafés, and vintage shops. You can also find a lot of oriental and Korean beauty shops here.
Today, I finished a painting of Paris! Now, I am preparing for an exhibition later this year.
When I finish working, I like to go to a cafe and take a leisurely walk.
Samcheongdong-gil is my favorite spot to meet up with friends to go to the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the brush store, a cafe, or a Korean restaurant. Today, I bought a new brush and ate Dumpling soup.
I’m really excited about this new place. I love finding new, small, unknown cafés. They are like secrets hitherto unknown to people. Today, I found a new cafe with my sister called Plant.
