Patbingsu & Smoothies at Jimjilbang

Just before Lois went back to France. We tried  the Jimjilbang, 찜질방 ! 방 / Bang in korean means a room. It's a sauna place ! And that was such an amazing experience ! First you have clean yourself in the showers and there every girl is naked ! From the kids to the Halmonis, the grandmas. No complex in there, and that's really cool. Then when you're finished, you change clothes (they give you an uniform, it's simple shirt, tee-shirt). And then you can do whatever you want in there. There are a lot of  different rooms with different temperature (from 60 to 5 degrees) and with different structure. One for exemple was full of sand, another one it was small rocks ! I really enjoy my time there. We actually slept in for the night, because yes you can sleep there. If you ever want to come to Korea but don't have anywere to sleep when you arrive, there is the possibility to sleep there !

Annyeongbada / 안녕바다 concert

Annyeongbada is my favorite korean band and I follow their work since now at least 4 years. It's an Indie Rock band. When I finally arrived to Korea, I swore that at least I had to see them once in concert since I was in Korea. And yes I did ! Thanks to my korean roomate who helped me reserve the place, well the website was all korean and even if now I'm okay in everyday life in korean, there are still those kinf of things I can't understand X) !
I loved this concert, we were at max in the room 30 personns I would say ! It was intimate and cozy, just like Annyeongbada music :) ! In one of the video, you can see them talking. Actually they had prepared gift for some of  the fans, who sent them message. Each time one of the member of the band read the fan message and then would give to them the present. It was so adorable from them ! That's made me like them even more knowing how they treat their fans. Here is an interesting story during the concert. One of the fan message was that Thanks to Annyeongbada he met his girlfriend, they both liked the band and that's how their relationship started. The couple was here and the guy came on the stage and proposed to her <3 ! It was really cute !


Our mark to get in the place ;) !


This song is named 야광별, which means Luminous Star ! It's from their 4th album. 
I love this song :) ....
As the sound is not great (I only have a smartphone so:/) you can listen to the song with better quality here :

 




In the next video, the song playing is "Birthday Cake" from their 5th and last Album out, "I cross the Sea with You"


With better quality, Birthday Cake : 





Another surprise during this amazing evening, we had Hooran which is the singer of the very famous band "Clazziquai"(2001 till now).
