2 days and 3 nights You can see authentic hanoks, see where BTS music videos were filmed, and enjoy a spa using healthy red ginseng! Introduction

Today, we’ll introduce you to Jeonju, Wanju, and Jinan in Jeollabuk-do.

In Jeonju, you can experience an old authentic hanok.
In Wanju, there is a place where BTS stayed and filmed a music video, which we will introduce to you.
Jinan has a facility where you can enjoy a spa with red ginseng, which is good for your health, so he and Loah go there and document it on the site.

It takes about two and a half hours to drive from the capital city of Seoul to Jeonju.
The KTX train also takes 2.5 hours.
Here’s why I recommend this place

  • Many foreigners only know Seoul when they travel to South Korea.
  • Jeonju is a great place to experience traditional hanok.
  • Wanju is where K-pop singers BTS stayed and filmed a music video.
  • Jinan has a spa that uses Korean red ginseng, which is good for your health!
  • These are undiscovered treasures for foreigners!
  • It’s a great place to take pictures to prove you’ve been to Korea.

If you want to get away from the developed city of Seoul and experience hanbok, hanok, and BTS filming locations, head to Jeollabuk-do.

Today, we’re taking you on a 3-day, 2-night trip to Jeollabuk-do with LOAH.

We are drinking coffee in the hanok building.

We actually spent 12 days traveling around and picked out the best places for international travelers.

We have a 15-month-old baby,

We chose our routes and destinations based on the fact that we were traveling with a child.

In Korea, Seoul is the most famous city, and the only other places that are known are Jeju Island or Busan.

We want to introduce more great places to tourists visiting Korea.
