The song ends with both of them dancing the 'horse-riding' move together.

Adventures With Jenny: touchdown in Korea and Getting Lost in Gangnam (Part I)

News via soompi.com

Adventures With Jenny: Landing in Korea and Getting Lost in Gangnam (Part I) (Writer’s Note: Adventures With Jenny is my shameless try at cataloging my first shuttle to Korea with #KoreaJoa2015! For the following 10 days, apply me as I indulge in Korea’s iconic food — reside octopus, anyone? — and landmarks, made entire with retellings of quick encounters with celebrity.)

I travel a decent amount. In fact, I like practically the total lot about traveling: all of the international in one suitcase, the refreshing breeze of a new city, the resident’s colorful accents and languages. yet no longer going to lie, if there’s something I fully abhor about traveling, it’s the aircraft ride. I wouldn’t say I’m a terrified flyer, but I’m indisputably a anxious one. One slight dip in a bout of turbulence has my back flat opposed to the seat, clinching the plane’s armrests with white knuckles and a faded face, whilst my seatmate supplies me a glance of annoyance for hogging her armrest. (Washington D.C. to South Korea is a whopping 14-hour flight. That’s like, 840 mins of fretting about being in a steel tube in this is flying throughout the air.)

Me when I be informed that I need to fly.

The ultimate hour of the flight is my favorite. This is when I breathe a sigh of relief and convince myself that I almost certainly won’t die in this vacation (or statistically, any trip, but still). It’s also top time to crank the window sunglasses up, just in time for the landing, without everybody around you recoiling from the pointy sunlight.

Touching down in Incheon, the sun off the horizon… Korea is de facto breathtaking.

A video posted by way of Soompi (@soompikpop) on Sep 29, 2015 at 3:42am PDT

You know you’re in Korea whilst you get greeted by a 2010 poster of Girls Generation at luggage claim, and then continue to peer Kim Soo Hyun’s face on every endorsement product ever, even the airport bus you’re taking. Being from a rustic where K-entertainment isn’t prominent in day to day life, I utterly stopped to stare at each and every K-pop star that made appearances at the walls, the columns, the televisions, and even, watch for it, the food. (Getting a coffee at the airport coffee shop and seeing Kim Soo Hyun on the coffee sleeve? Score!)

Kim Soo Hyun be like: “Buy my products, guuuurl.”

Somewhere all over the procedure of my 14-hour flight, the care for on my best wheeling suitcase broke. I didn’t understand till i used to be stepping off the bus in Gangnam that night, one duffle bag and one handbag in tow, achieving down to wheel my suitcase. It used to be like someone had spotted the tackle had broken, and then attempted to smartly re-arrange it in position as not to draw it any attention. Of course, the manage got here midway off in my hand once I gave it a yank.

I had no choice. I HAD NO CHOICE. I hauled my damaged suitcase around the street, where I had spotted a taxi waiting. Frantically, I tell the taxi ahjussi in broken Korean and exaggerated hand gestures to take me to my hotel, somewhere round the area. He took one glance at the cope with ahead of shooing me off the cab – it appears the hotel became tucked on the interior corners of an aspect boulevard that was tough for automobiles to pass. I come to a decision (okay, was forced) to walk. It was almost 9PM at night, the skies already darkened, with the streets lighted only by the dim glows of the streetlamps, the blinkers of the cars, and the unending video billboards. Thus started my adventure as I began to tug my suitcase down the streets of Gangnam, keeping off the stares of the ones passersby.

So while I’m half-hauling, half-dragging my suitcase via Gangnam, I will have to potentially mention that I absolutely no concept where I was going. In my defense, it was hard to balance having a look at a GPS and wanting NOT to be like Geum Jan Di in “Boys Over Flowers” when her baggage gets stolen in Macau.

And it took me a complete hour to get to my hotel TWO BLOCKS away. Welp, such a lot for arriving in Gangnam in Style.

Next up: i take a appearance at to to find a hair salon in Korea, navigate the maximum productive SUBWAY EVER, and move on a experience to BIFF in Busan! Have you been to Korea? Let me know in the comments below!
