1. Couple Rings

In Korea, it is very common to exchange ‘couple rings’ around the 100-day mark into a relationship. While not as significant as an engagement ring, couple rings are usually a matching pair worn on the left ring finger, and serve as a visual representation of the commitment to one’s partner. It is also quite common for couples to hand-make these rings together and include some type of engraving to make them even more significant.

2. Photoshoot

Whether it’s a 24-hour photo booth or a by-the-hour studio session, Korean couples love taking photos together. Photo booths are scattered everywhere throughout the city and offer couples a chance to create more candid memories in that day ‘couple look’. Whereas studio sessions are easy to book but offer a more elevated experience to capture special memories with a loved one. In Korea, couples often display an ID-sized photo of their significant other on the back of their phone case.

3. Perfume Class

DIY couple activities, including perfume making, have become a hot date trend in Seoul. This is not only because it’s engaging but also because it ends with each person taking home a one-of-a-kind souvenir. Perfume classes typically consist of two phases, selecting scents & mixing the perfume. It is common for couples to identify the scents they like on paper before swapping notes to create their partner’s ideal new scent.

N Seoul Tower offers a scenic escape and a panoramic view of Seoul, creating a romantic setting for couples to create lasting memories. It is a long-held practice for couples to attach ‘love locks’ at Namsan Tower to show their enduring commitment to one another. Padlocks can be brought from home or purchased on-site and are usually adorned with the couples’ initials and the date before being locked onto various surfaces at the viewpoint.

6. Theme Parks

Theme park dates are a great way for couples to break out of the daily routine with their partners. In Seoul, most couples visit Lotte World or Everland for a staycation getaway and buy matching or complementary headbands to wear throughout the park.
