 Whenever I opened my drawer and saw this photobook, I wish it'
Nobita's desk drawer which can access to Doraemon's time
machine so I can travel back in time to the Joseon period~!

 Take pictures so that we can show the taxi driver, as the pick-up point
will be at the same place as we dropped off.

The guide said we're the only group that not joining them back to Seoul, the rest of the tourists will take the bus back to Seoul at 5pm that day. So, if you're considering a day trip out of Seoul, quickly jot this down in your itinerary now... Feel Korea and Fall in Love in Jeonju!

 Amazed to see white Jeonju, I couldn't resist to snap few shots, but suddenly
gush of wind swirled and snow showered my hair. Ne~ naughty snow!!!

Journey back to Jeonju...this time round in Hanbok~! ^^

The guide brought the rest to Hanok Village, but we're left behind
as we're dragging our heavy luggage and couldn't catch with their big steps.

which is the entrance to familiar building...

If you haven't watched it, you might not want to miss it.

You'll love his role as Gu Yong-ha (Yeo-rim) - a mischief, smart, cute and upperclass scholar. He was nominated for Best New Actor, Excellence Award Actor in a Mid-length Drama, Netizens' Award, Popularity Award and won Best Couple Award with Yoo Ah-in.

We didn't go in because my hubby went to Tourist Information Center.

 We need TIC to help us to call and check whether kids are allowed 
to stay because the motel didn't reply my booking enquiry.

Kids went up as they're curious on this pavilion on the second storey...

Now my turn to go up for selfies... :P

There was a photographer came up, and asked me whether I'm an artist. He thought I was there for shooting film. I knew it's because I wore Hanbok... I told him I rented it from Seoul so I can travel around Korea and donned in Hanbok. He even asked me the price as if as he wanted to rent it too. Btw, he's Korean but maybe not from Jeonju.

Chatted with him in broken Korean. He told me he just came out from Hyanggyo, and asked me to  go there so I can take more beautiful photos...
