BUSAN, South Korea — Only 10 more days before the Korean kids start heading back to school, so plenty of families will be out and about this weekend before the summer winds down and teachers and students are back in the classroom.
This weekend is highlighted by a few happenings out in PNU, with the Zero Festival taking place Friday through Sunday. It's also a great chance to eat some great Thai food, or, if you're not in the area, there are also plenty of music and nightlife options this weekend as well.
