Scene in Seoul: -17 degrees celsius

Here’s the current scene in Seoul. It’s the start of February and we had a snowfall last Tuesday. I wanted to take pictures of the snow-capped mountain from where I’m sitting right now, but I couldn’t because the windows wouldn’t budge open. They are frozen shut! Wonder what’s the temperature in Seoul today? This morning, it was…

With a real feel of -24 degrees celsius, according to It makes me just want to stay home and watch the rest of the Korean drama I am currently watching ;p


  1. whenever I read about cold weather in S.Korea, I think about Rain (Jung Ji-Hoon) who is serving in the military right now.. he must be freezing.. poor Rain..

  2. Hi Ms. Betchay!
    Me and my friends will be arriving in Seoul on March 16. Can you please give some advise kung ano yung usual weather and climate during the 3rd week of March? Is it still very cold? Do we still need to bring thick jackets? Sayang kasi ang luggage space kung hindi naman na pala kailangan ng thick jackets. I’ll be waiting for your response.
    Regards =)

    I went there last December and the weather was -7 to -10.
    Thick Jacket is a must. You must wear more than that.
    I advise you to bring thermal wear and Winter Jackets or coat (wool). Otherwise you may have to buy there.
    To give you an idea, I need to wear Thermal wear, then Polo shirt, then sweater then winter jacket. I have scarf, ear muff, hat and thick gloves… and it still feel very cold outside.
    Unless of course you intend to stay indoors most of the time.

    1. Probably not really climate change since it has happened before. We don’t have a lot of snow this winter, though. I kinda miss last year’s winter!

  4. wow. grabe ang lamig naman dyan masyado. My younger sister is set to work there as an EPS hopefully by March. makayanan kaya nya ang lamig dyan? sa Gyeonggi-do province sya. Anong petsa matatapos ang winter?

    1. Hi Julius! Hindi na masyadong malamig sa March. By the end of March eh tapos na winter at parang Baguio na lang ang lamig.
