I'm from Ireland and I arrived in South Korea just over a month ago. I'm here to learn the language, the culture and explore as much as possible, hopefully while working if I can get a job ;)

Anyway, I'm looking for work and a place to stay (solo or shared), but most of all I would just like to meet new people.

Hope to chat soon :)


Hello Ppl.

I will be visiting Seoul with in few days . I am looking forward to meet some interesting ppl . It would be nice to hang hang out and spend some quality time.

Hi everyone

From Ireland moving to Incheon in a couple of weeks after three years in Japan, very excited about the move, looking forward to meeting other expats in South Korea.


I'm a South African. I first lived in Incheon in 2013-2014. I just moved back here about three weeks ago.

I am a Kenyan. Still in school but thinking of doing my masters in South Korea. I reaaaly love the country and its culture. For now I want to learn the language and interact with South Korean Natives in Kenya. But I wouldn't mind finding out how living and learning in South Korea is :)  :)

Great to see a fellow Irishman here, where in Korea are you?

Hello, I'm Myriam and I'm planning on studying in South-Korea
I would like to make friends too!!

Greetings everyone.

My name is Moe and I am from Norway and I am planning to live in South Korea for a few years. I want to make some new friends, learn about the culture and I want to improve my korean.

It would be highly appreciated if anyone could give me some advice about living in South Korea, more specifically Seoul.

Hi Everyone!
I'm an American (New Jersey) currently learning Korean and hope to make the trip soon. I'm especially interested in the countryside and equestrian activities in SK. Hopefully my Korean gets good enough so that I can earn my keep teaching English and/or helping others prepare for vacations in the U.S., so any help I can get would be much appreciated. And of course, making new friends along the way is a bonus!


i live in Germany and worked as Management consultant in Europe.
Great possibilities to discover most european countries and so many lovely cities.
A while ago i met my soulmate in Vienna.
He is Korean, living in Daegu, and we decided to live the next years in Asia.
So i will quit my job and move to Korea, but will need a job for Visa and money for living.
Hope i can get a lot of tips about living and moving to Korea and will find some job opportunities.
Thank you for offering the great opportunity , finding friends and connections here.

You should also go through the Living in South Korea guide so that to gather a maximum info.

All the best,

Hello, thanks for the advise and i will surely do that.

Thanks Bhavna, i will surely do that.

Good morning, I have just arrived in Seoul a couple of days ago after a spell in the middle east. I reckon I will be here a while working, certainly more than a year. My work is based in offices in the CBD and I am in a hotel for a while till I find my feet.

A bit of practical advice would be nice to help me settle in -

1 Does anyone use or recommend Uber for getting around the city, or a more local operator? (English language preferable).

2 Where is generally the best deal for drawing WON in cash from ATM's regarding Korean bank/ATM charges? My credit/debit card has great FX rates so I will draw WON rather than a home country equivalent converted by the ATM operator.

Thanks, look forward to chatting later.

Looks like english is the most used language... good...
