Now I will recommend date places for new couples. first of all, new couples must not go outside. because the women’s make-up will run, and for women walking in high heels is too hard. So, the best date places for new couples are musicals, theaters, and cafe. These place make men and women share their same hobbies and comfortably sit. especially men and women can speak in a calm tone and get to know each other better.

IF couples don’t have enough money, There are lots of place to 해 on a date.
FIRST, 여의도 park gives satisfaction to couples
couples borrow bicycles and in-line skates.
When they ride bicycles and in-line skates,
they don’t have to pay uncomfortably high lending fees.
and 여의도 park’s surrounding 한강(HANGANG) is also a good date place to walk and talk.
SECOND, ancient palaces(고궁) are valuable places to date.
ancient palaces have characteristic elegance of KOREA .
For example DOEKSUGUNG (덕수궁) have lots of sight.
and DOEKSUGUNG’S DOLdam-gil is famous date course.
dignity and quiet atmosphere makes couple feel romantic.
THIRD, SEOUL MUSEUM OF ART(서울시립미술관) is cheap and intellectual date place.
couples appreciate work of art. and they can raise their appreciate art skill.

Third, for couples who want to go outside for more than one night, We recommend JIFF, JeonJu International Film Festival.[1] JIFF has surprising events at roadways by professional or amateur bands and singers. So even couples need not to buy any performance tickets. [2]Just find performances and stand there and listen.
And Jeonju is a famous city for delicious food for hundreds of years. Thus there are lots of famous, tasty restaurants. I went to restaurants that serves gukbap, boiled rice served in soup and naengmyeon, cold noodles and unrefined rice wine.
and also Jeonju traditional Korean village. I took pictures of these places and all of these places have a good atmosphere for couples.

Fourth for couples who don’t have lot a time, we recommend places around INHA University, Such as 인경호 and 궁합나무 and 해오름동산, 인하대후문, 하이데거숲.
First of all, there is 인경호 in INHA University. Particularly, when cherry blossoms bloom, it is good place that date, sitting on the bench in 인경호. And there is 궁합나무. 궁합나무’s two benches are like chairs, there is a rumor that when boys and girls sit under that tree, that couple will be not break up.
The place is great while we go around the school. In addition, there is 해오름동산 behind the college of education, it is good place where we chat and take a break.
Because there is bench, we can rest quietly. Also, couple are likely to eat something and drink coffee together, because it is exist behind the our school.
And there is 하이데거숲 on the road to front gate. We can date between the trees, since benchs are arranged in sequence. Also, we can eat lunch from boxes, sitting on the benches with table.
