    First i want to say your site is awesome. (진짜 촣아요)
    Really gave me the motivation to getting started with study Korean again.

    Im from Austria/Europe. (오스트리아 사람 입니다)
    My korean wife and her friend showed me the 청계천 when weve been in Korea last year.
    Really was suprised that such a calm and relaxing place exist in the Megacity Seoul.
    Was very nice to experience.
    When we visited there, kinda event was going on, so in the stream itself they built up many figures like flowers, birds and folklore characters.

    Actually i wish i could have seen the light festival this year.
    My sister in law was there and sent us amazing pictures.
    I hope i can see it someday myself.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen

    그 동영상이 정말 재미있어요. 하지만, 저는 선생님이 한국어로 한 말을 이해 아직 잘 못해요^^
    한국어 듣기가 너무 어려운 일이에요. 날마다 연습해도 그래요 ㅜㅜ
    근데 제가 한국어를 완전히 이해하는 그런 날 꼭 일어날 걸 알죠^^

    안녕히 게세요

    Korean is a beautiful language.

    With that off my chest, yes, I’ve been to 청계천 when I was in Korea this summer. It’s a very beautiful stream and I can’t believe it used to be a highway! When I was there, it was very hot with clear, sunny skies and there were _a lot_ of people down there, resting and cooling off at the side of the stream and in the shades of the many bridges crossing the stream. Unfortunately I didn’t get to visit it when it was dark. I’ve heard they turn on a lot of beautiful lights. Would I go back if I get the chance some day? Oh yes.

    I went to Seoul before but we didn’t walk along 청계천. We just went straight to Dongdaemun ! Next time, I’ll spend more time there and enjoy the beautiful scene.

  • i enjoy reading and trying to learn korean but i need a lot of help..

    TTMIK is great, but TTMIK & WTMIK is even greater.
    In other words, Korean subtitles would be very much appreciated!!

    I was in Seoul from April 17 to May 9. I stayed with a family in a homestay setting. The family consisted of husband, wife and sons ages 11 and 15. Much nicer than a hotel!
    After the first visit to Changgyecheon, something, maybe the peacefulness, kept drawing me back again and again. Such a beautiful place!
    I fell in love with Korea and the wonderful Korean people.
    I was fortunate enough to visit Kwangju, Suwon and even Paju City!
    I liked it so much I plan to go and stay a whole month next year in the fall.
    By the way, I am 73 years old, made the trip alone and STILL had the greatest time of my life! SEOUL, 좋아요!! 사랑해!!

    I went to Cheongyecheon when visiting Seoul in early May last year. During that time, there was a friendship festival going on. There were bazaars from many countries in the world and I enjoyed eating and watching the performances. Then I took a stroll halfway along the stream and it was so beautiful. The weather was sunny and the sound of the stream was calming.
    Wish to visit S.Korea again soon ^^
