After reaching an all-time high in September of 2019, the South Korean won has remained steadily strong into the early months of 2020. While other travelers head to the popular tourism destinations of Seoul, Busan, and Jeju Island, we have our eyes set on another city: Mokpo, located in the Jeolla region at the southern tip of the peninsula. The port city offers some of the most interesting dining in the country, and specialty dishes like hongeo (a naturally fermented, extremely pungent skate-fish dish) attracts food lovers from around the world.
