Seollal (Lunar New Years) Weekend

Well we didn't spend the whole Lunar New Years eating Red Mango (although that probably would have been a pretty good time). We did spend a lot of time hanging out with friends. Besides eating Red Mango we also went to Yongsan CGV (movie theatre) because they were showing a new Korean movie with English subtitles!! We saw 슈퍼맨이었던 사나이 (A Man Who was Superman) and it was so amazing!!! I really recommend it. It was really funny, sweet and touching. If you get a chance to watch it you should. I'm really excited because apparently Yongsan CGV will continue playing Korean movies with English subtitles. I think I will go to all of them!
After the movie we went to the COEX Mall and hung out/shopped. D and C hadn't been there before and there's a great CD store and Bandi and Luni's (a bookstore that has an English section) so it's a good place to know about. We also had dinner at TGI Friday's. I made everyone go to the COEX movie theatre to pose by the big 슈퍼맨이었던 사나이 display. Hahah! It was a really fun day!

Oh yeah, and I noticed this clothing store at the COEX Mall- who doesn't want their new wardrobe to be "Out of Date"? Hahaha!

Otherwise the rest of the weekend we hung out in Bundang with D and C. We did the standard eat yummy things, play games, go to norae bang routine. Dana even got a bit tipsy so that was amusing!

On Saturday we met up with Eddie and Gisela, fresh back from Mexico (I'm so jealous of everyone that was able to travel during Seollal) and we checked out the Van Gogh exhibit at the Seoul Museum of Art. It was pretty good but it was so busy!! I've been to the museum three times now and this was ridiculous! We had to line up to get into the museum! Serves us right for going on a holiday, I guess. But it's not like it was a new exhibit (it started showing in November!).
