This place on Jeju Island is supposed to be most beautiful (and crowded) at night, but I was there alone in the day.

Pig parts in Jeju (South Korea)

I love bacon. I love a good pulled-pork sandwich. However, I don’t like to see where these items came from.

Marketing is a bit different depending on the culture I suppose.
