Ice rink opens at Seoul Plaza
The ice rink at Seoul Plaza, which has become one of Seoul’s winter icons, opened on December 16.
Marking its 10th anniversary, the outdoor ice rink is popular not only with children, but also with couples and tourists as they can enjoy both skating and a beautiful evening view of Seoul. This year the rink is even bigger and there’s a kids-only ice rink for their safety.
