Learn More Korean with Our Ebooks


Seoul and Busan are often compared to each other mainly for the simple fact that they are South Korea’s two largest cities. But they are very different from each other and they each have their own distinct vibe. These are just a few, but if you’re an expat thinking about coming to Korea to live for awhile, you might be trying to choose between the two. Me personally? I love them both. I would prefer to live in Seoul because I think it has more to do, but I love Busan’s more laidback feel for a big city.

      Everyone always says people are nicer in general down there too. I tried to convince Hyo to consider moving down there in the future haha.

    Yay! Love Busan. You’ve probably already been, but Gamcheon Culture Village in Busan might be my favorite place in all of Korea. It’s so colorful and beautiful! Busan definitely has this more laid back feel (different from even where I’m at in Jeollabukdo).
