As a country that belongs to four season countries, South Korea offers a beautiful scenery during winter. Cities in South Korea often snow a lot. If in Tokyo it rarely snows in December, it is different from the South Korean capital, Seoul, which is often quite snowy during December. There was something interesting about my first snow experience in South Korea. Usually, the first of December is the official date of winter season starts, but snow rarely falls on that date, usually only the cold last. However, in the city where I lived, Daejeon, I got my first snow on December 1st! After that, I returned to Indonesia on December 27th. I could not recall how many times had it snowed in Daejeon, as it snowed quite often.
For me who just saw snow for the first time, the snowing scenery was amazing. Even the photos I took could not describe the beauty of snow in South Korea.
