Red bean soup for Saatchi Art Artist Jieun Park in Seoul, South Korea

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.

4:00 PM

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.

6:00 PM

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.
