10 sweet spots to take your date on Valentine's Day in Seoul
  • Restaurants
The restaurant choice is definitely one of the determining factors for a nice Valentine’s night. You know the drill: make sure you choose a good one and hurry to make a reservation (and no, going unconventional by taking your date to a local Kimbab Cheonguk doesn't necessarily make you cool).
A date at a museum — have you done it yet?
  • Art
Taking a nice stroll through artworks and exchanging quips over coffee at a nice museum café — an art show adds an interesting dimension to any romantic interaction, whether for a first date or a night out with someone you have been with for a while.
  • Movies
Movie date on Valentine's Day? Old-fashioned, granted, but classic. After all, a good film is a hundred times better than a mediocre love confession (girls, do I see your hands in the air?). So unless you can whisper like Humphrey Bogart, let the movie speak for you. Here's a list to choose from.
