I LOVE SPRING. But then after a long cold winter who doesn’t? The weather is getting positively warmer. People are slowly discarding boring black items and instead warming up to a more uplifting fashion. Most importantly, spring is the season of blossom which is pretty much what photography lovers like me practically live for. As I’d done quite a lot of Seoul/Korea traveling before joining this blog, I figure these photos taken back in the days must not go to waste, which is probably the only reason why I’m starting this spring destinations in Seoul thingy until spring officially comes. I hope you’ll enjoy the photos and visit these places in spring because oh god are they beautiful.
UPDATE (and it’s important so READ IT FIRST): So after I wrote this post I kinda got excited and decided to go see Seokchon lake this year. And guess what? The whole place now is a MESS. Don’t even bother going there this year. JUST DON’T. They’re building a lot of stuff right now and everything is covered with dust and concrete. The trees looked just sad and ill and yea. If you still stay in Seoul until next spring or visit Seoul spring 2k15, maybe Seokchon lake will be better then.
Seokchon Lake is the very first name I immediately think of if you ask me where to spend the day admiring the blossom and choke on its beauty. It is located conveniently in the heart of Seoul and surrounded by many fun facilities (one of which is Lotte World if you’re into amusement parks). In spring, the trees produce so much blossom that it seems their own flowers are weighing them down. The flowers when in full bloom are so exquisite you will forget human existence around you and understand why we need winter to see the beauty of spring.
Look at all the beautiful bokeh in the backdrop. Friends are great but friends with amazing photography skill is on a entirely different level.
And when the twilight comes…
I miss my photography buddy ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

Recommendation: 5 out of 5.
How to get there: Seokchon Lake, Songpa Naru Park, Jamsil station exit 2 or 3. Keep walking straight ahead should you be able to reach the park.
