[Korea] Exploring Yeoju in a day!

[Travel in October – November 2016]

Introducing Gyeong-gang Line that opened in September 2016. Gyeong-gang line that runs from Pangyo Station to Yeoju Station that makes day trip to Yeoju alot easier by a transfer from Shinbundang Line. All thanks to 2Day1Night, they introduced this new line as part of their Sejong The Great episodes, hence we got to know this easier way to travel to Yeoju. King Sejong is one of their most respectable king in their history. In fact, he is the one whom create the Korean characters that all Koreans now able to read news even they doesn’t go to college. If you still find his name unfamiliar, he is the one who appeared on your 10,000won note!

here’s some sharing of the Yeoju trip :)
