BUSAN, South Korea — Temperatures are freezing the new year so far, but hopefully the weekend can warm your spirits. Look on the bright side: at least it’s warmer than Seoul.
It’s a pretty quiet weekend after a month of parties and holidays, but there is still plenty to go, see and enjoy for the first weekend of 2013. A month-long Woody Allen film festival is underway at the Busan Cinema Center, the Hwamyeong Toboggan Slope is once again open for business and there are plenty of indoor activities if you are looking to beat the chill this weekend.
You can check out the Haps Calendar for everything going on around the area. Enjoy!
