I've been taking pics and making blog posts of spring flowers in Seoul since I came here around 10 years ago.  Enjoy!

I miss springtime in Korea with regards to the cherry blossoms, and the warmer weather. Something I cannot
get where I am. I also miss the Jindo Sea Parting Festival. I attended that one last time in 2016 before I left
Korea.

The things about Korea in springtime that I really don't like are the yellow dust and these light green things
in the air that leaves their particles on the ground.

Spring is easily the worst time of year in Korea.  The air pollution is savage, yellow dust and the farmers burning trash including plastic and god knows what else.  The amount of times I've had to cancel a hike or any outdoor plans because it wasn't safe to go out in that gunk air was awful.

Maybe it's just my area, but the last month or so has been pretty okay. We had some atrocious crap near the end of Feb, beginning of March, but it's been decent since. Nothing much past 100.

... it's weird how an AQI in the 60s now means "good weather" isn't it? :(

There are some pretty stellar photos there!
I especially like the tulips (I have to, out of patriotic duty), and the fire maples!

Should be getting nice now.  May is my second favorite month in Korea with October being my first.

I miss Korean springtime. Warmer than where I am now.

lol from what I recall you're in Ontario?  yeah, it's freakin' winter here still (Toronto)....just had hail today.

Korea does have four seasons; the same can't be said about most of Canada.

1) Too ****ing cold
2) 2 weeks of nice weather and yellow dust
3) Too ****ing hot
4) 2 weeks of nice weather

SO DISTINCT. NO OTHER COUNTRY HAS THIS.

1) cold winter like southern Ontario, Canada or the north-east of the US (e.g., NYC), but much shorter.  Hell, it's May and Toronto's temps are still 50 to 55 F; was also in NYC recently and it wasn't that much warmer. 

2) I imagine the weather right now in much of Korea isn't too shabby

3) It does get hot and humid in much of Asia, but I was able to manage it (not in Hong Kong, though).

4) Fall is warmer and lengthier in Korea (or East Asia in general) than my region.

But, if you're from, say, SoCal or Flordia, yeah, I can see why people would hate Korea's weather.

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom in my area, and I managed to grab some photos over the weekend!
Considering that the skies went from the deepest blue they've been in weeks so the ocher haze we're now getting thanks to China, I'm really glad that I took the time!

If anybody else has some pics they'd like to share, I'd love to see 'em!
These are all just taken with my phone because I can't be bothered to bring a camera everywhere with me...

Nice shots Kyndo.  Your neighbourhood clearly had some very different weather compared to up in my area this past weekend.  Weather was miserable here both Saturday and Sunday.  Rain all day Saturday and overcast and a bit cool Sunday.

Back in the day you had nice falls and springs and they'd stick around for a while.  Yellow dust was much less too it seemed.  I remember my schools in the countryside at the time sent me home early too.  In fall I went out cycling every afternoon.  F/n brilliant weather.  Even if I had that free time now, which I don't, it wouldn't matter.  The humid polluted air hangs on a lot longer ruinening any holidays you have until about mid October and for 2 weeks it is nice while you mostly have to be at work. 

Climate here sucks most of the time.

Occasionally, there are a few days in May and sometimes even June that can be nice.  Korea should do daylight savings time so we get an extra hour of sunlight in the evening in spring and fall to get outside and enjoy the weather before it is dark.

Countries should be moving away from this. Korea doesn't need to go backwards and adopt daylight savings time.
