First things first. I want to say, once and for all, that no one should ever, EVER, have to wake up when it is still dark. Everybody clear on that one? Good.
That being said, doing so can result in some pretty cool experiences. Like, for example, hopping on scooters/motorcycles with some very good friends and riding out to Homigot (호미곶) to watch a beautiful sunrise. Despite being half-asleep, it was a great time.
