 K-dramas and movies glamorize Jeju Island as South Korea's ideal honeymoon destination. Who can blame them? Jeju's fresh air, scenic beauty, gastronomic local cuisine, and wide range of experience tour options justify all the hype. South Korea's ~honeymoon capital~ offers a sweet escape from the hustle of the big city while staying equally equipped to cater to urban needs (like shopping!).
