  •  And I said that people of all races, shops. Into the back alleys and hotel district. Korean Club is supported by the brighter image now, but at one time was a little scary. How to make kimchi, gathers material briefly and go to it.

  • Came quite calm the hustle and bustle of five years ago, but still feel still deep-rooted Korean continuous care. Women mainly come for the Korea food town. I think most famous samgyeopsal, chestakgalbi have gathered in this town.
