18 February 2015, Seoul – We last revealed the best ways to experience Korean Pop without having to stalk your idols in Korea. Clearly we cannot leave out the obvious places to be camping/stalking your favourite Korean idols right?

As a K-pop fan and a traveler, it’s obvious that you would like to see your favorite idol during your trip to Seoul.
