Seoul in South Korea is always top of mind for Filipinos. It's the home of everything we love: K-Drama, K-Pop, and all the other interesting things in the Hallyu Wave. And to make things a bit easier for travelers flying to this country, South Korea announced that they're finally dropping the pre-departure RT-PCR test requirements. This new rule was in effect on September 3.
