I'm planning a return trip to Seoul in Mar or Apr of 2006, about a week. Does anyone have any new info regarding hot new K-Pop, or Korean animation? I'll probably be hitting the Kyobo Bookstore in Jongno/Myeongdong, and the big bookstore in the COEX in Samseong.
I'm planning to take a lot of photos and scout out potential photoshoot locations for anyone who follows later in the year. I don't know if I'll have a cos ready for the trip, but I will definitely be looking out for new pieces and raw materials/accessories.
If all goes well I'll be staying at a hotel in the heart of Myeongdong. Does anyone know of any good festivals in March-April? Wish I could be there for the summer concerts, but the hotels charge a lot of prices because Japanese tourists start showing up from May through October...
