If you ask me what is the most romantic place to hang out during the night in Seoul, I will definitely recommend Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain. Banpo Bridge is not just an ordinary bridge, but you can enjoy a fountain show that happens every night (except winter). Located along Hangang River, you can chill around Han River or have a picnic, enjoy ramyeon (Korean instant noodles) that you can make by your own in a nearby convenient store and enjoy the dazzling fountain show.
“Banpodaegyo (Bridge) is a two-tiered bridge over the Hangang (River) that features the Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, the world’s longest bridge fountain recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records) with 380 water jets and a dazzling array of multi-colored lights.”
This drink is so popular recently! If you can not drink Soju ("Korean legendary alcohol'), you can try this carbonated liquor, contained of between 3-5% alcohol. "Iseul Tok Tok" (이슬톡톡) is a peach flavored fizzy beverage with alcohol content from Hite Jinro and it is very popular with women due to its fruity peach flavor.
