BTS has become the top male group in Korea and around the world! The recent releases of the members’ solo albums and the news of their global tour have made their fans, ARMY, even more excited. Today, we created a special recommendation list for overseas ARMY members who want to travel to Korea. We present the “BTS City Tour Courses by Theme”.
Based on three different themes, foreign tourists can pick and choose something different! If you love BTS, you’re especially going to love our recommendations! Shall we take a look? ☺
BTS Travel Theme 01. Experience the beauty of tradition in Korea
Do you remember when BTS performed the song “IDOL” in black hanboks against the backdrop of a beautiful old palace? Or when they sang “Mikrokosmos” above a cool lake? We’re talking about BTS’ performances from the The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon <BTS WEEK> from 2020. Both stages were held at Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, specifically the Geunjeongjeon Hall and Gyeonghoeru Pavilion.
Gyeongbokgung Palace is Korea’s representative tourist attraction. Did you know that tourists who are dressed in hanboks can enter free of charge? There are many hanbok rental shops nearby, so dress up, take some cute selfies in front of Geunjeongjeon Hall, and explore the beauty of traditional Korea. ☺
BTS Travel Theme 02. Experience the hot taste of Korea
If you’re a true ARMY, you must know this place! It’s a place called Yoojung Restaurant, the same place that BTS used to frequent back when they were trainees. Not all of the members’ families live in Seoul, so it’s a place where they could enjoy “home-cooked meals” and get recharged through the power of rice! Scenes of them eating at this place were even shown on “Rookie King-Bangtan Channel.”
As a sacred place frequented by ARMY, the inside and outside of the restaurant are filled with BTS photos. Their menu consists of foods like bibimbap (mixed rice and vegetables), cheonggukjang (fermented soybean paste stew), and budaejjigae (spicy army stew), where you can enjoy the spicy and peppery taste of Korean food. Also, try their signature BTS menu items, Yujeong ssambap (meat wrapped in lettuce) and black pork stone pot bibimbap.
BTS Travel Theme 03. Experience “Heung”, the Joyful Spirit of Korea
BTS’s self-produced variety show “Run BTS” is a binge-worthy show for ARMYs around the world! On this show, a variety of spots were introduced, where you can enjoy different activities in Korea. The place that aired in episode 48 is last on our list: Smob of Starfield Hanam, an indoor theme park where foreign tourists can let loose, get active, and have fun!
Being dubbed a “Playground for Adults,” there are zip lines, wall climbing, trampolines, rope courses, etc. It’s full of all kinds of activities. In order to fully enjoy this place, remember to wear comfortable clothes and sneakers and pack some water! Well, are you ready to sweat and have some fun?
