  • As it is forbidden to make noise there, it is possible to walk in absolute silence and to look not only at that which leads to emotions, but also on beautiful nature. In March some trees are already beginning to bloom.

  • The first time I lived in Busan, I visited the UN National Cemetery. It was a wonderful and reverence place than I thought. It was a place where we could think deeply about our time and the future. Everyone who travels to Busan and the citizens of Busan are encouraged to visit once.
