Weather in Korea


This is just how I’ve come to experience the weather since living here. Some people love it, some people hate it. Korea’s weather is pretty similar to my hometown of Detroit, except for the humidity. We can get humid days back in Detroit, but every few days, usually a few storms and a cold front will come through and give us relief for a couple of days.

Here, the humidity basically stays until fall so there is no relief.

Fall is beautiful, and winter is pretty similar to back home as well but I think it feels colder since I walk more here. Also the icy sidewalks are like slippery death traps on which I have fallen many times.

Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly to have an easier time learning Korean.

      I’m from Detroit too, and I have to say that the weather is really similar! The humidity also threw me, though. I couldn’t believe it!

        Another Detroiter! I do miss good thunderstorms from back home though.

        • Anjelica Armendariz

          Ugh I know! And all the festivals and the nightlife. Some days I’d kill to go to Greektown or even Cass Corridor!

    2. Yes! Yellow dust! and the heat was torture in the summer >.<

      That yellow dust comes over here to Japan as well…Luckily, it’s only around one day every so often.

        I didn’t know it made its way all the way over to Japan. Actually this year it didn’t seem as bad compared to previous years.

          I never noticed it when I was here four years ago, but yeah, it’s really awkward to see the ocean turn brown from China’s crap.

      I’m free Detroit too. Maybe we need a Detroit ex-pats group in Korea. After four years of looking for work, I decided it was time to move on… to another country.

        Wow good to see more Detroiters out here… I’ve met quite a few. I had the same thoughts as you coming here.
