Whether you’re a fan of K-drama, K-pop, just South Korea, or all things South Korea, then you can probably relate to Randy and Sarah Arguelles. The Pinoy couple, who spend their time together watching K-series and listening to K-idol groups, have always dreamed of travelling to South Korea to experience what they’ve been witnessing, thanks to Hallyu.
“We wanted to wear a hanbok, eat Korean dishes (especially samgyupsal!), visit royal palaces, and tour popular tourist destinations!” Randy tells TripZilla Philippines.
How Randy and Sarah recreated K-drama scenes
In nine days, Randy and Sarah were able to tour around Seoul and its nearby provinces. The couple even took their trip a step further by documenting their experiences just like how they’ve seen celebrities and K-drama characters. “I was inspired to recreate photos since my sister, who loves K-dramas, wasn’t able to come with us to South Korea. We took these shots to make her happy!”
Amazingly, all these shots were taken in just one trip to South Korea. Check out their pictures below!
