Bài mẫu tham khảo:
I visited Seoul for seven days during winter last year with my mother and brother. Although we tried a lot of delicious food and saw a lot of beautiful scenery, I was looking forward to the Namsan trip the most in order to accomplish a mission.
Namsan tower is famous for the ‘tree of love”, a designated area around the base of the tower where couples can publicly declare their eternal love for each other by placing a love lock. My girlfriend, who is a hopeless romantic and a huge K-drama fan, wanted to get a lovelock as a souvenir from the place. I was at a loss for words when I saw thousands of lovelocks of different shapes and sizes, scattered around the “Tree of love”. The place looked exactly like the movies we had watched together at home so I immediately took out my phone to video call my girlfriend to show her. Before leaving, I got her a pink lock, with a heart in between, which I was sure she’d love.
She believed a lovelock from Namsan tower would help our relationship to last longer. She told me that was one of the best gifts she has ever received and she definitely would cherish it. Although I don't really believe in the magical power of the lovelock, I still got her the lock to please her.
