Busan in My Eyes

on 6 December 2011

Busan (taken from Wikipedia)I’ve been 3 months in Busan but not yet write something about this city. Busan is South Korea’s second largest metropolis after Seoul. By any chance, Busan is the sister city of Surabaya (yay! my city). If you ask me how long to catch Busan from Seoul, it takes 2 hours 40 minutes by KTX (Korea Train eXpress) or 6~7 hours by bus.

We can see the maps to imagine how big the city of Busan is 🙂

At first I came here (September 2011) the weather still feels good for me. It reminds me of the city I love so much Malang. But in the end of November, the autumn looks alike will be enter winter. The coldest temperature I’ve ever record is 0 degree Celcius!

Actually I don’t really know about this city before I came here. I just knew some information about Busan. One of my bestfriend who really likes K-drama “Delightful Girl Choonhyang” (DGC) cried happily when I told her (on this August) that I will fly to Busan to have my master degree. Honestly I never watch DGC when it aired 2005 in Indonesian TV, that’s why I didn’t know about Busan, I didn’t know the story of DGC, and of course I didn’t know the love story of Choonhyang & Mongryong! But finally I saw the K-drama last month because one of my friend just download it. After seeing the serial, I understand why my bestfriend loves it so much. I do googling and find out that DGC is the 2005 interpretation of the Korean clasical story in the era of Joseon Dinasty. In this series, actually mostly the scenes show about Seoul and Namwon, but in the end Choonhyang hide herself in Busan for some reason. I believe that the scene was not originally taken in Busan because they don’t show the other places except Choonhyang’s residence 😀

These are some pictures that I capture around my campus 🙂 [click at the picture to enlarge]
