Perspective on South Korea

Image
To be honest, South Korea has not been on my list of places to see before I die.  I've set foot on South Korean soil just to kill time while waiting for my flight to some place else.  After a 13-year old relative told me that she preferred Seoul, So. Korea than New York, I thought I'd look into what made South Korea a popular destination for millennials.   To get some perspective, I asked another relative, Rose, to share her Vlogs on this platform.
