Kyunghee University is one of the best destinations to visit for viewing cherry blossoms other than Yeoido Park. I've been to Yeoido Park the day before and it was so breathtaking. It's now the time to head for Kyunghee University for comparison. Lee Hyori and Rain (Bi) graduated from here but don't expect any pictures of them in my blog though..hehe. Check other best spring destination by Korea Tourism here.
Kyunghee University has a few beautiful aesthetic buildings and I went there twice!! First with Miju and her mom on Saturday and for the second time on Monday with Ria. Nowon and Sangwolgok is so far from Yeoido Park hence Kyunghee University is the best option.
After alighting from Hoegi Station, Line 1, Exit 1 we took green bus number 1 to Kyunghee University's gate for a very short distance. If you have T-money card you could have a free transfer after taking the subway if not then the ride cost is around 600won.
Miju and her mom in front of Kyunghee University's gate. Anyone can enter the university without restriction except for some places like library where they need your Student ID for access.
It makes me wonder why spring comes right after winter. There's not even a single leaf on the tree, just flower. So amazing and breathtaking. Subhanallah..
The campus bus
We pulled some of the branches and took some flower girls shot.
Kyunghee University is a "good" place to study!! Come here..hehe.
We are Kyunghee's unofficial ambassadors.
The building behind is the library.
You need to pose like that statue to be a 4 flat (CGPA)
student but we are obviously not. ^_^
Another great building but we were confused whether it was a church
or not. There were no cross/crucifix to justify. Miju said that it was
a building of peace.
Some middle/high school students on their
The main building / lecture halls.
Having fun with fish-eye mirror.
Another beautiful tree.
In front of Fine Art Faculty.
We wrapped up our Kyunghee tour with some cream puff
which reminds me of Man Fai..hehe.
My Second Tour with Ria
Ria is from Jakarta, Indonesia. She has stayed in Seoul for
about 1 year and a half and will stay for another 4 or 5 years
because her husband is doing his doctorate in KIST (Korea
Don't be confused with KAIST the famous institute in Korea.
It's a different one. They stay near to Sangwolgok Station,
Line 6. I accompanied her to view cherry blossoms due to
her husband's strict schedule in the institute.
Inside Hoegi Station
Selca with magnolias behind us.
I told Ria that in Korea if you put flower on your head
people think you are crazy..hahaha
Another flower in spring.

We met this little girl at the subway. She reminds me of
Choi Siwon's daughter in Oh My Lady drama. So cute!!
