Seoul this February: Ice Fishing, Petite France and BTS
This February, Seoul has a little something for. From ice fishing to seeing Journey perform live, this month is filled with things you’ve probably never done before. Grab your winter coat and enjoy everything Seoul has to offer this February!
Until February 5 | Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival
If you’re willing to venture outside of Seoul, the city of Hwacheon is holding a festival unlike any other. The Hwacheon Sancheoneo Festival's main attraction is traditional ice fishing, where you are taught how to fish with a pole or, for the brave, with your bare hands! There is also sledding, ice sculptures, and lots of hot food and drinks to indulge in.
Until February 5 | Yangju Snow Festival
Yangju is a gorgeous forested region to the north of Seoul, and can be accessed by the Seoul subway. The annual snow festival offers sledding on the stunning mountains, ice sculpture competitions, and an art showcase for local artists. The tickets are 12,000won for adults and more info can be found on the official website (in Korean) or Visit Korea.
February 15 | Journey Live in Seoul
On February 15 at the base of Namsan Mountain, Journey will be tearing down the house. The group famous for “Don’t Stop Believing” will be in Seoul for their very first time playing for one night only at Blue Square Samsung. As with any group’s first performance in Korea, it is sure to be a wild time! Don’t miss out and get your tickets here.
February 18 - February 19 | BTS Live in Seoul
The insanely popular Korean boy band, BTS, will be performing for two nights straight at the Gocheok Sky Dome. These concerts come after their latest album topped the international Billboard charts and this world tour is set to be nothing short of amazing.
Known for their high energy performances with incredible dancing, BTS’s last concerts completely sold out and, unfortunately, so has this one on Interpark! But if you know Korean or have friends that do, you might be able to find one or two tickets through Twitter!
Until February 28 | Little Prince Petite France Illumination
Just a bus ride outside of Seoul is a village that will transport you to another country in the blink of an eye. Petite France is famous for its French village architecture and its ‘Little Prince’ memorabilia. K-drama fans will recognize this town from more than a few dramas! During the winter months, the town is lit up with a stunning light show and filled with street musicians to make a romantic, cozy escape from bustling Seoul.
Until March 26 | Nick Knight Image
If you’re looking for some artistic inspiration this month, head to the Daelim Museum near Gyeongbok Palace and enjoy the Nick Knight exhibition. The famed photographer’s first show in Korea is a must-see for art fanatics. For those who don’t know Nick Knight, you’ve probably seen his most famous works with leading designers including Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Vogue.
