[In Full Bloom] Cherry Blossom Festival is here in JinHae, Korea!

Finally, it’s officially Spring for real! Loads of friends have been flying back home to Korea, specially Jinhae, to visit families and also, to enjoy the magnificent view of the Cherry Blossoms and other flowers in full bloom. This time, #teamSOCK will recommend a new place other than those usual suspects in Seoul (Yeouido, Hangang River Park), which is none other than Jinhae 진해!


There’s a saying going around that “The best representation of Spring in Korea would be at Seom Jin River”. Looking at the pictures provided by KTO, who can say no to that?

You can check out beautiful sunsets atop Chan-bok Mountain.
