One of the top items that couples share are rings. Lately, many couples in Korea have chosen to make their own rings instead of buying extravagant ones.
With the instructor’s guidance, the couples measure each other’s size, cut the metal and make them into rings. Exchanging the rings they made for each other adds special memories to their token of love. 4. Couple Massage Therapy
