Tapgol Park 탑골 공원 & Insa-dong 인사동

I went to Insa-dong (again).. The first time i went there is on weekend and there are many people and there's also street artist.

This time i went there at weekend.. There's less people but still very fun. And because the post is gonna be long, i will separate it into 3 posts ( 1 post/day ) :

1. Tapgol Park 탑골 공원 & Insa-dong 인사동

* I am not a fan of K-Pop. I only know a very few Korean songs and artists. So my posts will not be about K-Pop.
I know that Seoul Song, i used to like the song very much because of the beautiful places ! haha ! I'm glad i visited some of the places already - Gwanghwamun Square, Cheonggye Stream, Banpo Bridge, and Ssamziegil.
I never watch We Got Married, but my friend watched it and we just suddenly found that Miss Lee Cafe accidentally *

Part 1 - Tapgol Park 탑골 공원 & Insa-dong 인사동

I got off at Jongno 3-ga subway station. You can get off at Anguk subway station too if you are going to Insa-dong. But if you want to visit Tapgol Park first, you can get off at Jongno 3-ga subway station.

This is inside the Jongno 3-ga subway station

Subway station looks beautiful with those calligraphies

Saw some street foods.. Saw potatoes and can't resist my longing for potatoes.
I love you, potatoes.
And then here it is, Tapgol Park..
This park is an important place in Korea history - first location for the reading of the Declaration of Independence.

Went out of the park and saw that there's a play at across the road !
The play is in Korean Language so i understand nothing. But seems like they are playing about the Declaration of Independence.

And then, just keep walking along the street and you'll realize that you are already at Insa-dong ! ^^

a booth for making your own stamp

the ajummoni is making a kind of traditional Korean snacks.

And then... i saw someone sell Turkish ice cream ! I have see about Turkish ice cream several times at youtube. It is unique because the seller always give attraction ! So for sure, i also want to experience it! haha.
If you never watch the video about Turkish ice cream seller, see this video :

The attraction is not exactly same for everyone, depends on the seller. But you will get some attraction like in the video. Very interesting. I was like, "wow ! wow !" " i didn't see it!" several times. Haha!
There are some Turkish ice cream sellers at Insa-dong.

I got my Turkish ice cream for KRW3,000

The texture of the ice cream is really unique..... ^^

I think here is the beginning of Insa-dong if you come from Anguk Station
