Hello! I'm a Tennessean moving to Daegu next month! I have never lived outside of the US and have no acquaintances in SK so I am looking to meet some new folks and have some fun adventures.

Hello every one, my name is Patricia Ferreira. I live in Africa, Swaziland. I have been in South Korea back in 2008, it was an awesome experience living there. Friendly people, I went sight seeing their beautiful country, I got a job in a pre-school. I really enjoyed their food as well especially the fermented cabbage, Kimji. I want get come and work there again as an Aupair.

Its an amazing country with a lot to offer, I would suggest you take this opportunity and use it wisely. Its a great place to be, great people, beautiful culture and so much to learn.

Hi, I'm Kaya, i'm french ( currently living in paris ) and I would love to do a 6 months internship in South Korea ( Seoul mostly ) . Starting from September 2017 til March 2018. I travelled to SK back in 2014 and I loved it as a tourist. Now i wanna experience another side of the SK society.  If you got any advices or tips . Please share it !
Any help is welcomed :)

Nice to meet you !
Itaewon is really an international area in Seoul. So if you ever missed some species or just some western food you can go there and you'll find it. It is also a great place by night.
I would definitively recommend you to do the 5 palaces of the city of Seoul. They are amazing. You just don't wanna miss the King Sejong Museum. It is so full of history and culture.

In summer time, Enjoy the cold noodles and patbingsu. It is literally delicious and refreshing !

I wanna tell you so much more but i don't think there will be enough place here to write them all. looL

Contact me in private, i'll reply as soon as i can

Hello everyone ~
I'm Mama, 27yo, a French girl expat in Seoul since 2014.
I've come for learning Korean for 6 months in Yonsei at first and met my current fiance and I've never left the country since then... I've done a year with a Working Holiday Visa and then changed again to a student visa. Nowadays I'm still learning the language but in SNU, and I am working part-time in a software company.
I am a Korean food lover and I'm very interested in Korean history (looking for very good books btw).

Nice to meet you ~
