SO my boyfriend and I have been dating for a little over two years. We spent a significant portion of that time, however, in a long-distance relationship. As a young Korean man, he needed to complete his mandatory military service this past year. Although this year has been abundant in challenges, him and I have been able to enjoy ourselves since I have been in Korea! For anyone else who finds themselves in my shoes (or perhaps similar ones) I wanted to provide an idea for a full-day date! For reference, when I planned this date, it was the middle of November, so the weather was very agreeable. Also, for those of you reading who find themselves single in Korea, I would definitely recommend this itinerary for a friend-date or even a solo-date!
