@Julien Hi Julien, thank you for “looking out” for us… Respect! 🌻

Hi all, no “hard” plans yet. But who knows… For now I could use help translating a letter to Korean. It's a personal letter to “the highest floor” of the company. I'm “tumbling” towards a lawsuit in NL, with my direct (stubborn) colleague. I believe it's best to keep such away from a judge and not fight in public. This letter must be in perfect Korean and taking all rules in terms of respect and ways to correctly address and attract the necessary attention.

So, that in short… :-) Please? Anyone…?

Thank you in advance 🌷

BR, Jo

My name is Steve Baker

I'm a 67 year old retired British Cirizen.

I have met a lovely South Korean lady who I would love to marry in South Korea but hadn't a clue how to go about it.

Anyone out there who can advise me and how easy it is to stay when we'd

Thank you

Hey, everyone! I lived in the ROK for a cumulative half decade between 2008-2016, but I've been back in the US for approximately the same amount of time. I've recently felt this calling to return back to the peninsula either as an ESL teacher or some other job, preferably in a Christian work environment.

Hopefully someone has some insight into resume-writing for ESL positions overseas, the best TEFL online classes, and resources to sell entire households in one fell swoop. Thanks for any tips or suggestions!

Also, my name's supposed to say "Homesick for 한국", but it doesn't recognize 한글, apparently...

Hello @Homesick for 한국,

Hello Shyam Shdnineh,

What do mean without visa ? You can not come to South Korea without the proper visa.

Please find more details about your visa options by reading the Visas for South Korea articles.

G'day all round,

I'll be moving to Busan, Korea in the next few weeks to work as an ESL teacher.

Does anyone know where a good place to get a beer is once I arrive?

Any recommendations are helpful, and if I see you when I'm there, just come up to me and I'll be sure to buy you a beer and share some stories!

Hi, this is George, I visited Soeul years ago and really like this country, recently there is an opportunity for me to move to this lovely country.  My work is specialized in reducing online fraud and credit card chargeback, so it's a good idea to say hello to folks in South Korea.

I would like to know what should I do if I want to continue my career as a Fintech guy if I moved to this country later. How to further develop my current profession?  any useful thought is welcome.


I'm Al Arca, and was an expat in Ulsan as a young boy in the 1965-67 time frame. Our family moved to Ulsan when my father went with a team from Swift and Co to start production in a fertilizer plant.

@Julien good post
