What could be better than binge-watching K-dramas, shopping for Korean skin care products, and savoring their spicy, yummy cuisine? Here’s what—actually traveling to South Korea! The Land of the Morning Calm is not only home to our favorite Hallyu stars and K-pop artists. From shopping and café hopping coupled with sightseeing and getting immersed in their culture, there’s just so much to see and do!
Still not convinced? Below are the local celebs who’ll definitely make you want to book that flight!
