Looking for Friends in Seoul!

Hello everyone!
I am a Canadian and have been working at a hagwon in Gangseo-gu, Seoul (near Gimpo) for about four months. I am interested in getting to know some new people and make some new friends that are outside of the "hagwon bubble". I'm female and 22.

I'd love to do some touristy things, go shopping or go out for drinks or dinner. Let me know if you're interested!

Hi Erika

I'm also in Seoul arriving in two weeks, as I will be working as an English teacher.  I'm in Nowon-Gu.
I'd love to make friends with people as it's my first time in South Korea. I am a female.
If you're interested in being friends, just let me know :-)

Hi Erika,
How is your life going on in Korea?
I am also in Seoul and would like to meet up with other expats.
if you would like to meet someone from other parts of the world, feel free to contact.
have a good time.

Hi Erika,

Any chance you speak French? Tons of plans to hang out in a very dynamic French speaking group.

Otherwise, welcome to Seoul and best of luck with finding things to do around town.

Take care,



I would love to meet up with you when you get here! For some reason I can't private message you. Do you have that function turned off? I can send you the link to my facebook via private message.
