Making bracelet and eating deokbokki with Rina

Making bracelet and eating deokbokki

With Seunghee Seo

Hi: I am Seunghee Seo. I had a good time with Rina from Japan.

Originally This tour starts at 2 p.m. but she arrived in Seoul at 4 p.m.

So we changed the schedule. We met at 4 p.m. Dongdaemoon.

My basic course is ” eating at Gwangjang-Market, Purchasing accessories materials in Dongdaemun general markets and making Accessories in Cafe.”

But today, Dongdaemun general markets is closed about 6 p.m., we changed the order.

We went to the Dongdaemun first.

Purchasing accessories materials

It took a long time more than 30min (  it is my expectation)

We spent about 1.5 hours here.

Because she chose the materials for her own accessories, I can’t decide them.


Gwangjang Market

It was 6 p.m. We just purchased the materials.

So we went to the Gwangjang-Market for dinner.

Gwangjang-Market is the famous tourist attraction so there were many people.

We stopped to eat street food. 

We ordered ddeokbokki and kimbob. She said she can eat something that is not so spicy.

I thought it will be ok for her, but it’s not. So she ate just Kimbob 🙁


After eating, she wanted to drink some sweet thing. So we went to the cafe.

On our way, we saw the parade of the Day of Buddha´s Coming. It was lucky 🙂


In the cafe, we ordered some sweet dessert and made the bracelet.

She didn’t make bracelet before, I made it for her with the material chosen by her.

Although we spent 1.5hours purchasing, but It took just 5min to make the bracelet.

Rina chose “R” and “S”. R is Rina and S is Seunghee.

It is little cutepuns but has meaning to us! 🙂


Before we said bye, Rina gave me chocolate and letter.

I was really moved.
We took pictures and exchanged the facebook address.

Because it was the first tour, I was little unaccustomed to guide.

But really good experience 🙂
