It’s taken awhile to get used to certain Korean foods and customs, but I would say I’m pretty familiar with most things after living here for 6 years. My tastes have changed a lot and I’m starting to like certain Korean food that I didn’t like before.
The last one really relates to me though. In the states we are not THAT enthusiastic abut delicious food. However I a little anxious when I’m eating with Hyo’s fam because they are asking me or telling me every 5 minutes how good the food is and asking me if it’s good (looking for a big reaction). I don’t think I will ever get used to that.
Shoutout to my friend Anthony Baber for giving me this idea. He wrote a nice article about the stadiums and offers more info on the special things each stadium offers (Check it out here.) My personal fav would have to be Munhak since I live in Incheon and you can’t beat the reserved BBQ Zone while you watch the game.
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.
