Seoul does not empty during the holidays. My statement was based on erroneous claims that I’ve now proven to be false.
Spent the last few days battling through shoulder-to-shoulder crowds (note: shoulder width measured by Korean standards so even denser than you might initially imagine). Not enjoying the madness, but that said have had an awesome time anyway. More updates to come, but felt I needed to dispel my previous claim before getting around to a more in-depth post.
Happy weekend, everyone!
