Egy kedves koreai ismerősöm a télutó okozta jeges úton totálkárosra törte az autóját, szerencsére ő maga nem sérült meg súlyosan. A kórházi látogatásomnak nagyon örült, sőt még egy kis White Day cukorka csomagot is kaptam. Köszönöm és jobbulást! :-)

I really enjoyed Seoraksan and will almost certainly try to go back if I end-up spending another year in Korea. I think I'd skip the tour group and hopefully be able to plan for clear weather, though.
