Among these parks, the Culture & Art Park sits in the deepest part of the forest, and at the entrance to the Ginkgo Tree Forest is BTS’ RM Bench.

Dosan Jokbal
A tasty restaurant that captivated the appetites of V, Jin, and Jimin

Love Your BTS & Seoul! Seoul Travels for ARMY

This restaurant that is known to have been visited by V, Jin, and Jimin has also been frequented by other celebrities as a popular restaurant in Cheongdam. Unlike other common jokbal (pig’s trotter) restaurants, Dosan Jokbal has a classical interior design like that of a wine bar or an Italian restaurant. Dishes that the members ordered are the bossam (vegetable wraps with pork), kalguksu (noodle soup), and gogi mandu (meat dumplings).

The simple, refreshing bossam with the fat removed and the spicy but cool kimchi are the perfect combination. Enjoy that with the rich broth of kalguksu for a clean finish to the meal. Unique dishes like the fried jokbal with a crunchy outside and soft inside and the salad-style, mango jokbal with fresh mangoes and vegetables are also popular.
