  • April Korean Popular Cosmetics Collection | K-beauty you don't know

     If we talk about Korea, what else can you think of besides kpop? I guess most girls will say it must be cosmetics. I don’t know if you’re the same as me.always sighing and curious when watching Korean dramas and idol.Lament the Korean skin is so good. And curious about what product they used.Then start to enter online or buy products through friends’ recommendations.But are Korean cosmetics popular abroad really famous in Korea? Don’t blindly choose Korean cosmetics. Let me take stock of the most popular Korean cosmetics in April for you.1.Not Too Much - Lazy Morning Ph-balance Cleansing FormIf you ask a Korean:What do you think is the most important step in the skin care process? I believe 90% of people will say clean. So when it comes to the choice of facial cleanser. Koreans will be extra cautious in their choice. This most popular facial cleanser became the king of sales in April.The ph value of this cleanser is 5.5, which is the most similar to the skin ph, which can minimize the irritation of the cleanser to the skin. There are also 7 kinds of natural plant ingredients inside, allowing the skin to get nutrients from nature. Even if your skin is very sensitive,you don't have to worry about it.Treat your skin well from the morning!  2.Nature republic - Black Bean Anti Hair Loss ShampooDo you know a song called ‘I felt your shampoo scent in the shaking flowers’ from Beomjun Jang?If you have been to Korea, you will find that Korean girls are really exquisite.Their pursuit of beauty has even reached every hair. You can always smell a faint fragrance when you pass them by. What I admire most is that their hair is always smooth, even if it is perm and dyed, It is not damaged at all. Later I learned that Korean girls are very harsh when choosing shampoos. And this shampoo is rich in Jeju island black beans, natural ingredients can not only reduce scalp oil secretion but also reduce hair loss. Maybe this is the reason why this product has been ranked No. 1 for several consecutive years. If you have the above problems, then you must try this shampoo. The fragrance of your shampoo in the swaying flowers will be particularly charming. 3.Derma:B - Daily Moisture Body LotionAre you accustomed to using skin care lotion every day? If not, then you must understand the importance of skin care lotion. The thing Korean girls will do after bathing is to apply body lotion all over the body. If you don't like skin care products that smell heavy, then you must try the daily moisture body lotion that Korean girls are using. Even for sensitive skin, you can use this body lotion with confidence. Don't miss it! 4.Nature Republic - California Aloe Fresh Powerdery Sun StickIn Korea, you can go out without makeup or washing your hair, but the thing you will definitely do is put on sun care. The sun will not only darken our skin, but also accelerate the aging of our skin. The secret to good Korean skin may be here: To develop a good habit of applying sun stick. I think there are two reasons why Nature republic California aloe fresh powerdery sun stick has become the choice of Koreans. One is to use carifornia aloe ingredients refreshing and not irritating. Another one is that it is easy to carry and can be used anytime, anywhere. Sun stick will be absorbed by the body, so be sure to choose natural ingredients! And it must be refilled every once in a while to ensure that your skin is protected from ultraviolet rays. 5.Uriage - Bariederm Cica LevresFor Korean girls who wear makeup every day, lip care is also an indispensable part of every day. Does your lips often crack if you wear lipstick every day? This lip care provides your lips with the most natural Barrier from harm. If your lips have been severely damaged, you must use lip care that contains less irritating ingredients.  If you want to know what is popular in Korea recentlyFollow and leave a message to us.Let us tell you what you want to know about Korea!

  • Korea’s cherry blossom festival in April | Definitely not to be missed

    Hi, I'm Saurus from the Kpop character band Violet Walls.April is coming. Have you ever heard a song called ‘the ending of the cherry blossom(벛꽃엔딩)’? This song can be heard everywhere every spring when cherry blossoms are flying Have you ever imagined how beautiful Korea is to when cherry blossom comes out?Let me tell you three of the most beautiful places to see cherry blossoms in South Korea.^-^1. JINHAE GUNHANGJE FESTIVALAddress: Yeojwacheon Stream and Romance Bridge, Yeojwa-dong, Jinhae-gu, Changwon-si, Gyeongsangnam-do 경상남도 창원시 진해구 여좌동If you like cherry blossoms in South Korea, you must not miss the cherry blossoms in Jinhae. The most famous one is the red and blue locomotive as shown in the picture. Although the train has been out of service, it matches the rows of cherry blossoms on both sides of the road. You can take a bus or train from Seoul to Busan, then take a bus to Jamhae Outer Bus Station, then take a bus or taxi to Kyungha Station, where you can see a fairytale world of cherry blossoms falling.There are also a variety of traditional Korean snacks for you to choose if you feel tired. There are also many cherry blossom themed gift shops. Bring a special gift for those who can't come to Korea but also want to experience the fairy tale world.2. CHANGDEOKGUNG PALACE Address: Yeojwacheon Stream and Romance Bridge, Yeojwa-dong, Jinhae-gu, Changwon-si, Gyeongsangnam-do 경상남도 창원시 진해구 여좌동If you love South Korea, you must know the Gwanghwamun Gate. But do you know Changdeok Palace, which is also a good place for Koreans to choose to enjoy cherry blossoms? The stately traditional architecture of South Korea and the romance of cherry blossoms form an imaginary picture. You can feel the charm of traditional culture of South Korea with only 3,000 WON. Here's a tip! You can visit Changdeok Palace for free on the last Wednesday of every month. Not only in spring, but also in any season, you can see different scenery in Changdeok Palace.If you're tired of wandering around, head to the nearby Hanok Cafe, where you can enjoy a coffee break while watching the cherry blossoms fall on the dreamlike Ghandeok Palace. Take your friends, your boyfriends and girlfriends to enjoy the beauty of spring!3. CHILDREN'S GRAND PARK   Address: 216, Neungdong-ro, Gwangjin-gu, Seoul 서울특별시 광진구 능동로 216 There are many parks in Seoul where you can enjoy the cherry blossoms, but one of the parks I would like to recommend is the Seoul Children's Park located in Guangjin District, Seoul. You can take the subway line 7 to reach the Children's Park Station, and you will enter the Seoul Children's Park near exit 1. You don't need any ticket to enter the Seoul Children's Park currently.Rows of cherry trees became one of the most attractive paths for people to go for a walk, where you can definitely take wonderful photos that could amaze everyone, not only is the cherry blossoms, there is also a zoo, a botanical garden and a playground. If the weather is nice, the picnic area will open.   Go on a picnic together with some friends in the spring, where you can also be an innocent young child! ^o^With two prestigious universities nearby: Konkuk University and Sejong University, you can head to University Road in the evenings to enjoy the vibrant college nightlife.  * Because Corona has not gone out for a long time, remember to wear a mask, meet a few friends, and enjoy the fairy tale world of Korean cherry blossoms.

  • Korean Specialtist 1 | What are we eating today?

    Hello, I’m Neconave from K-pop band Violet Walls!It’s me in the band who fancies delicious food most. If you travel to Korea, there is some traditional Korean food that I must recommend to you! Remember to collect it!There are too many things to say, I will divide them into two parts.Don't forget to come back again! 1. Korean fried chickenIf you have seen ‘My Love From The Star’ , then you must know chic-maek (치맥),chicken and beer.The main character of the TV series always eats fried chicken on the day of the first snowfall.but for me, fried chicken and beer are my favorite choices no matter what time it is.There are many famous fried chicken brands in Korea, such as Kyochon, BHC, BBQ, Goodnae.Each brand has its own unique taste. Even if you eat fried chicken every day, you will not feel tired,]so remember to try it! 2. Korean BBQIf you are a meat lover just like myself, then you must try Korean BBQ.  The delicious kimchi will defuse the greasiness of pork, plus sauce, bean sprouts and other vegetables, it's like a symphony in your mouth.If you still want to try Korean alcoholic drink, you must have a bottle of Korean unique soju, this is the fantastic “dream team”. 3.Pork Feet & Bibim NoodlesPork Feet & Bibim Noodles is called the king of supper by Koreans。If you can’t eat spicy, you can choose the original flavor, if you like spicy you can choose fire porkfeet,Or there is another choice called garlic pork trotters, which is my favorite.If you feel the trotters are greasy, you can have a piece of Bibim noodles to refresh the taste.Or if you prefer rice, you can order a rice ball.There must be people who have never tried this combination, but there are definitely no one who only ate it once. 4. Kimqi pancake & Unrefined rice wineIf it’s raining, there will be a choice in the Korean menu called Kimqi pancake & Unrefined rice wine.Why do Koreans like to eat this on rainy days?One of the interesting reasons is that the sound of the iron plate when making pancakes is very similar to the sounds of rain.So the most reminiscent thing on rainy days is Kimqi pancake & Unrefined rice wine.Not only Kimqi pancake, there are also plenty of alternatives, like seafood pancake, potato pancake, fish pancake, you will always find your favorite.Unrefined rice wine is a traditional Korean rice wine. Compared with the strong soju, it is easier to be accepted by ordinary people, and it is more like non-alcoholic drink.And there are a variety of flavors to choose from, including fruity, creamy, and yogurt flavors, each of them is worth trying! If you know any other delicious Korean food, or want to know other food information.Please leave a message and let me know! Or if you know something that I didn’t mention, please tell me! I must try!

  • 2020 Korean New-Tro | South Korea that you don't know

     Have you watched the drama called Mr.Sunshine? Does the retro trendy clothes impress you? This new-tro trend is emerging in various fields in Korea, such as vintage clothing, design style, food and so on. The people who lead this new-tro trend are the young people in South Korea. They have injected new power into the retro trend.  New-tro = New + RetroNew-tro can be interpreted as a Korean version of the “hipster” culture, but it is very Korean in terms of the origin and interpretation of the word. There are many reasons for the popularity, the most important of which is that young Koreans born in the 1980s and 1990s have always been full of love for the various design styles of the time, and younger people inject the energy of the new era to make them renew Shine.Not only new-tro clothes, but also the new retro trend in all aspects. Let’s take a look at the popular items that are loved by Koreans under the new retro trend.1. accessories  Scrunchy and hair claw can be said to be the most popular fashion items by Korean girls recently.How hot is the hair circle of the large intestine? Kpop artist can be said to have one man, and the color matching of the clothes adds a sense of youth and profit. For example, as everyone knows: IU, BLACKPINK JENNIE, etc. have used scrunchy in private servers or MV, and the novel style is very amazingThen there is a hair claw made by Korean girls, because it has a variety of sizes and colors, no matter how long your hair is and what style you can control, the moment you wear it, you are the most gentle Korean drama heroine, why don't you buy one and try it?   2.soju  Speaking of the representative alcoholic beverages in Korea, Soju must be mentioned, which is quite popular not only in Korea but also overseas. For Koreans, the earliest soju brand was Jinro soju, which was born in 1924. Their icon -- toad, was not very accepted at the beginning.In 2019, Jinro redesigned the image of toad and improved the production process of soju to make the taste of soju softer. This series of changes conformed to the trend of new-tro and gained huge popularity. Especially in the main consumer group of soju-young people aroused a topic.Fans who understand Korean culture must know that when drinking soju, they will use soju cups with soju. The combination of soju and soju cups has become a well-known golden partner. In order to follow the trend of new-tro, more merchants have launched soju glasses with retro elements which will be printed with a sense of age on them, which are deeply loved by young Koreans.   3. Interest life  With the sudden emergence of Corona19, more and more people have to stay at home. Retro products that can evoke warm memories of the past have regained attention, especially film camera and vinyl record.  In the 1980s and 1990s, the film camera was arguably the most fashionable fashion item, but with the popularity of mobile phones, people used more portable mobile phones to shoot, and the film camera gradually disappeared from people’s vision. But with the rise of new-tro, film camera reminds people of the past and returns to people’s vision. Even the film camera vending machine appeared near hong-ik university, which caused a strong response among young people.Would you also enjoy music time if you were at home alone? With the new-tro trend, vinyl records have re-entered people's vision, and more and more people have begun to collect vinyl records. A lot of this popular trend has also added a lot of interesting designs to kpop. For example, the album launched by the artist is no longer a CD, but a vinyl record full of age. The combination of retro and new era culture, are you moved?On May 1, we will launch monthly korea K-box May ver. And there will also be a new-tro product in it. If you are curious about what it is, or if you want to own it, then you must remember to follow us. See you on May 1!
