Busan

CNNGo is taking you to South Korea's city by the sea, Busan. Make no mistake, Busan isn't trying to be like Seoul and it takes great pride in doing everything just a bit differently. Former radio host Petra Jung gives us a taste of what it's like to be in a port city. And that taste is of course, seafood. We head to the largest fish market in all of Korea, Jagalchi, where the food goes from wiggling in a tank right to your plate. We also find out the secret to what makes grilled seafood in Busan the best, and get to know makgeolli, the drink that has been tempting Koreans well before soju. Then, editor of HAPS Magazine Bobby McGill shows us the role Busan played in the Korean and Imjin wars as we tour the Geumjeong Fortress and the Beomeosa temple. Photographer Min Ho Yun gets us access to where the spirit of Busan is on full display - the Lotte Giants baseball game. Yun says Busan baseball games are more like going to a karaoke bar than a sporting event. If you need a caffeine break, café owner, Jay Song gives us some insight into the coffee craze in Korea. And once you've got the energy, musicians Violet Lea and Gino Brann take us on a tour of the nightlife, where we see where all of the best local music can be found. Busan may be Korea's second largest city, but it by no means feels it is second best.
