[Seoul, Yeoksam, Gangnam] The Frypan - Fried Chicken + Potato Chips + Beer


Happy 2017! It's now the year of the chicken, so thought I'd do a series about my favorite chicken places in Korea.

Also, it's perfect because I love Korean fried chicken...or just chicken in general.

However, so sad, but there's a pretty serious avian flu outbreak in Korea right now, so RIP all those chickens.

Today's post is about The Frypan, this location is in Yeoksam, but there are tons of locations all over Korea.

Jeju for Chinese New Year (Seolnal) 2017: Any tips?

Hello, everyone.
My parents are coming to Korea in a few weeks and we will be going to Jeju for Seolnal (Chinese New Year).

I have only been to Jeju for a work trip that lasted less than 24 hours, so I was looking for some tips of where to go, what to see, and where to eat.

Thanks in advance!

PS. So far, I'm doing pretty well with updating a lot in 2017, but I have to dial it back a bit, I think. Going to run out of content soon, maybe.

I came across this informational post about public restrooms on the Seoul City Facebook page.
The information is not available in English, so I realized I should post it here.

Do you have any public restroom hints or your own? Any to avoid?
