New record has been written for high temperature in Spring. Temperature at Daegu, which is the warmest city in Korea, hit 25degC at one point. The night temperature in Seoul has been maintaining above 10deg C for the past few days. This is probably the warmest March in Korea's history. The warm weather is expected to last until the end of this week and then 꽃샘추위 (Coldness in Spring) is going to come again.

Yesterday, after watching the movie "슬픔보다 더 슬픈 이야기", I dropped by Cheonggyecheon at Dongdaemun. Its fountain which was non-operational during winter is now spouting water again. It was a cooling and beautiful evening.


  1. Welcome back! Equinox ssi :)
    原來你一直都沒有離開過 :D

  2. Hi Equinox,

    stumbled upon your blog randomly while searching for information on learning Korean. It's a very nice blog with lots of pretty pictures. Its also a good place to learn some basic korean words too(from your blog entries).

    Anyway, I gather you are from Singapore too. What advice would you have for learning Korean easily and cheaply in Singapore? (I've learned to read Hangeul, but that's about it.)


    And good luck with your studies too! (are you on exchange/ completing your degree in Korea?)

  3. @ tsukasa, you may want to try those korean courses offered by the community centres. you can check the people association website for the course schedule.

  4. 감사합니다, I'll check PA out. Have you used them before?

    just wondering how long you've learned korean? you seem really good at it! 加油!

  5. i study korean as long as this blog.
    i have not attended korean lessons at community centre but i heard they are quite affordable.
