a walk through our country's present, dreams and future

Seoul is a vibrant and bustling society. With K-pop or Korean pop culture spreading like wildfire all throughout Asia, we walk through the epicenter of it all, the Gangnam district. We will see where the fashion trends are started and how stars are made. We will also bear witness to the technological might that is Samsung and look into the vision it has for the future. A tour that complements the Culture and Heritage tour, it really tells the tale of how we went from being one of the poorest nations of the world to one of the most powerful.
