Only in Korea Podcast: Seoul 8th Most Expensive For Cost Of Living

The Economist Intelligence Unit ranks Seoul as the 8th most expensive city in the world for cost of living. Chance & Travis discuss their thoughts & this week’s poll results from the Only In Korea Facebook group.

Bim Bom (빙봉) advertises itself as an “organic egg brunch” and is in Itaewon, Seoul. It’s the fanciest breakfast I’ve had in Korea. We waited outside for 20 minutes on a Sunday afternoon, but a great crepe for 16,000₩ seemed worth it. Don’t forget to pierce the yolk and spread it around on top of your crepe before rolling it up and cutting it into bitesize slices.

Address: 261-6, Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, Korea

Directions: This place is not very close to a subway station. Nearest subway station is Hannam on Jungang or central line. We trekked up some monstrous hills from Itaewon.

서울특별시 종로구 인사동길 33-1 (관훈동)

Candidly Kate: Feeling Seoul Unsettled

It’s been two and a half weeks since I boarded the KTX and moved my life up to Seoul from Busan.  To say that the transition was a bumpy ride would be an understatement, but I’ve had a lot of support from my parents, my friends back home and in Busan, as well as new friends and colleagues (not to mention superiors) who have helped in many ways (most notably cracking the whip on my landlord to fix my water as well as getting me a sweet new armoire).

Beyond Busan: Seoul Searching

I have been in Seoul nearly two weeks now and it feels like a year’s worth of events have taken place in the blink of an eye.  What is “sleep”?  What is “free time”?  In this video, you’ll see the progression from my suitcases exploding in my new apartment to a place that feels like home.  It feels like a dorm room, and while I’d much rather live in an environment I’ve decorated in a sophisticated manner, my biggest priority this year is using my 2 generous vacation periods to see the world.
