After the weekend in Tokyo, Ceddy and I headed to Seoul. While he was at work, I explored the city. The first area I went to was Gangnam.

The Gangnam Tourist Information Center had exhibitions with k-pop music, k-pop band members’ costumes and photos. It also had a “medical tourism” section, which had recommendations for the best places to get cosmetic surgeries or dermatological procedures done.

Exhibit A: a complex of plastic surgeon & dermatologist offices. Seoul, South Korea.
