Hi All,

I am looking to move to Seoul (or one of its many suburbian Cities) in September 2018 together with my Korean wife. We want to spend a couple of years in her home country. We currently live in Dublin, Ireland and I just wanted to put out the feelers to get some other expat insights around, rent (or Joense), job search (preferably in my field as IT consultant) and studying Korean.
I am still very bad at Korean, despite two beginners courses, duolingo and some very basic converastions with my wife. It just doesn't stick in my head. :-/
How are you picking up Korean, how long did it take you?
It'd be great to see what experiences other people had...



Hey everyone!

I use to live in Incheon as an elementary school teacher. I'm no longer in Korea but I loved it and miss it so much. I also still keep in contact with my Korean friends, still study the language and still keep up with the news there.  Oh and I was in Seoul all of the time and it remains one of my favorite cities. I'm moving to Paris this year but Korea still has a piece of my heart!

Thanks for the motivational speech :-) Looking forward to my adventure now too!

Hi all,

I have accepted a new job which will be located in Busan, Korea. I'll be there early July.  Any advise on where I can find a decent apartment would be helpful.

It's quite normal to find house through consulting brokers. They are in general having
or sharing each other the information on the houses appeared on the market with different size, location, rental prices, and so on. I'd like to recommend you to contact several brokers in local for comparison.

I would appreciate the help, and thanks for reading. Have a nice day ^^

Hi everyone,

I am from The Netherlands and I live in Seoul for little over a year now. I share a rooftop home with my Korean Girlfriend.

I fell in love with Korea 5 years ago when I studied Korean at the Sungkyunkwan university. Ever since I wanted to come back to Korea to make a living. Now I teach English at several academies and I started my own YouTube channel (SexyGreen - for those who are interested).

I want to share my experiences with the rest of the world and show how a Dutchi mixes in with the Koreans.

I would love to read more about other people's experiences while living here, both the good and bad things.

I am ready to connect!
