Snapshots: Couple in Namsan Tower, Seoul, South Korea







Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I thought I'd post something related to that celebrated/dreaded day.

In Namsan Tower in Seoul, everyday feels like Valentine's Day (fortunately or unfortunately), as attested to by the couple above, who were writing their love confessions on a random chilly day in November.

If there was one thing I learned on my trip to Korea last November, it's this: it's not exactly fun to be single in Seoul. But that's for a whole other post. :)

Are they both girls? They sure look like they are.

Here in Holland, Valetine's day is not a big deal. Guys doesn't even want to give flowers.

Daene said...

No, they're not both girls! Haha :)

I somehow had this notion of Holland being a romantic kind of place...which I guess it probably is, except Valentine's Day isn't particularly special. Maybe it's more of an American tradition/marketing ploy, which is why it's sort of a big deal in the Philippines. :)

Daene said...

Yup, I we saw the padlocks! There were loads of them. I'll post the pictures we took soon. Even the benches were couples! It was all kind of amusing, for the most part. :)
