Summary of the Blog Post

As summer approaches, the weather is getting warmer, but it also means there are more fun activities to enjoy. Today, I want to share my experience at the Korea Beauty Festival held in Gwanghwamun. The event was filled with various booths and activities ranging from Hallyu content, idol makeup, VR and AI photo experiences, to Taekwondo experiences. I personally tried the AI photo experience, and it was really fun. Additionally, there was an event at the information center where you could collect stickers on a fan to receive a gift; I got a travel-sized toothpaste and toothbrush set.

The festival wasn’t just about beauty experiences; there were also consultations with plastic surgeons, events and gifts from cosmetic companies, and regional promotions. Most activities started from 2 PM, so since I visited during lunchtime, I couldn’t participate in many activities but enjoyed walking around and looking at the well-decorated square.

The event in Gwanghwamun Square lasted for three days, and other areas in Seoul are planning various events as well. Hair makeup in Hongdae, fashion in Seongsu, and reward events in Myeongdong are scheduled. I’m looking forward to what other events will be held in Gwanghwamun Square next time. If you have the chance, I recommend participating in these events!
