The latest threat came two days after the North Korean military announced it would rip up the 1953 armistice agreement ending the Korean War - a move that would theoretically pave the way for a resumption of hostilities. LINK
Anyway, we finally made it to Gangnam (after walking, catching the subway, catching a train, catching another subway and then changing subway lines). All up it took about 2.5 hours. I really wanted to have my photo taken in front of a sign at Gangnam station doing the famous crossed wrist dance that PSY does but Jihyeon was too embarrassed to indulge me.
We headed to a Korean BBQ restaurant in Gangnam where we had Samgyeopsal. It was kind of expensive (for Korea) because Gangnam is an expensive area. It worked out to be about 20,000 won per person (about $20). As you can see in the picture, the meat and the side dishes was very good. More info on Samgyeopsal here.
We then moved onto an Irish pub (which was quite expensive even by Australian standards). From memory a schooner was 8,000 won ($8).
Needless to say, we didn't spend much time here even though we had our own private room. We quickly moved onto a more traditional Korean tavern.
We headed home about 10pm and got back to Daejeon about 1am. At Daejeon train station we decided to catch a taxi home. I thought I had been in some crazy taxi's before, but this guy took the cake. Speed signs? They are actually a maths test. Whatever the speed sign says.... you should do at least twice the speed. I am not kidding or exaggerating this. We were doing 110km/h through city streets. Indicating? When you are going that fast there is no need to indicate to let other cars know what you are doing. By the time they see you, you are already past them. Jihyeon told me it was called a Korean bullet taxi.....
