With its modern infrastructure, the delicious food, and the bustling culture, it's no surprise that Seoul is one of the most popular destinations in the world for tourists.

In an attempt to quantify just why Seoul is awesome, CNN has compiled a list of 50 reasons why the South Korean capital is the greatest city in the world. 

From reasons like the food and all the shops open at any hour of the night to the super-fast internet, we can't deny any of the 50 reasons why Seoul rocks. However, among the many pros of Seoul, 4 reasons really stood out for us.

Coming in at No.43 and No.42 are beautiful women and beautiful men respectively, and there really isn't much to say about it other than we agree!

The next reason to catch our eye from CNN is No.32, which is K-pop girl group domination. K-pop is (unsurprisingly) huge in Seoul, it is one reason why the city is so awesome. CNN writes that "from TV and billboards to ramen packages and water filters, girl groups are everywhere in Seoul," and that sounds like heaven to us!

But perhaps the most notable one for us is reason No.30, which is none other than G-Dragon! The BIGBANG leader has been one of the most influential stars to come out of Korea over the past decade, and he continues to set the fashion trend in Seoul with his audacious wardrobe. And of course, there's his music with BIGBANG, which continues to reverberate throughout Korea!

For those curious at CNN's 50 reasons why Seoul is the world's greatest city, check out the full list right HERE.
