Most of us love chocolate for its wonderful and sweet taste. Eating chocolate releases hormones such as serotonin and dopamine, which makes people happy and crave more chocolate. It truly provides a break from our busy and stressful lives. In other words, it gives us relief. So if you’re a big fan of chocolate, you cannot miss the third Salon du Chocolat Seoul!
Salon du Chocolat Seoul 2017 will take place from Jan. 12-15 at the Seoul COEX.
