Running club Re: Running club JillyK
Hi Dave!
I just moved to Busan and am a runner as well. I'm doing the race this weekend in Busan, and one in Gyeong-ju Oct. 17th.
I live close to Haeundae, but way up the mountain in Jaesong dong.

What type of pace do you run at? Where do  you typically run?

e-mail me!

Gym in Gimhae? Re: Gym in Gimhae? 143busan
it kinda depends on what are of gimhae you're in...believe it or not, that's a pretty spread out city.  it also depends on what ur budget is as koreans think that expensive means good.  if you go to the top floor of the 'hue n' rock' building...that's the building with the CGV theater...there is an upscale fitness center that runs about 100K a month.  there is also a fairly new one...

Is Busan a good place to live?! Re: Is Busan a good place to live?! elmobuzz
busan is a good place to live.  it can be cliquey, but life really is that way, in general.  the only really negative part is having to listen to people who like to hear themselves type about how great they are and how they could not make it wherever their home was, but yet how they know so much about life back there.  if you are wanting to move to busan, you can get a pretty good...

Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! Re: Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! elmobuzz

food, especially new and strong tasting ones, need to  be tried at least nine times before a true like or dislike is formed.  a child one time saying that it does not like something should have no influence on whether the food will be offered again.  (the same goes for adults, really.)  this approach is of even greater importance when dealing with something as...

plagued by little flies in your apartment? I have the answer. Re: plagued by little flies in your apartment? I have the ... mattsid
Keeping any discarded food waste in your apartment is what seems to attract them the most. Solution, don't! Or if you don't fancy taking your food waste to the food bins after every dinner either flush it down the toilet (Koreans don't like you doing this, apparently it blocks them, but never had a problem) or keep food wastes in a sealed container. Personally I keep my food waste in a large...

New in Mokpo Re: New in Mokpo adele_v

I did mean 200 million; obviously I'm talking about the very Korean system of paying around 75% of the apartment value in full upon rental and then getting it back entirely from the landlord when you leave the house (never quite understood what's in it for the landlord...apparently bank interests, on average 4,5% per year).

Anyway I have now decided to stay at the apartment...

Gym in Gimhae? Re: Gym in Gimhae? hope749

Gymrat780,

Well in my opinion and experience I recommand you the elementary school playground for the suitable place of your exercise. Usually it is opened to the normal public people during whole day in Korea. So lots of korean people including me enjoy the exercise at the playground without no fee at the huge ground after the work until the late evening. For instance running,...

Teahouse Re: Teahouse Rutherford

Just go to google maps and type in "다원" and "찻집".  Both are names for traditional tea houses.  There are a bunch around but they're not always easy to find. 

I can recommend a nice tea house behind Lotte department store in Seomyeon.  It's called 하나방 and you can find it on google maps. 

There is also a bit of a tea district in Jungang-dong...

Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! Re: Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! kilhallon

LBS, why do you bother to waste your time answering this constant stream of drivel from individuals who so obviously have so much time on their hands.

I have no doubts that the majority of us that are amused by the ongoing comments, have no doubts as to your sincerity in your postings, a somewhat rare attribute on this site.

Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! Re: Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! lee-bum-suk
''I say just ignore them''....then why do you respond and why does it take you three paragraphs to say such? A child only needs to tell an adult once he/she doesn't like asperagus.

Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! Re: Lee Bum Suk is a Waste of Our Time! Chambertin

I say just ignore them, and the rest of those who have been here too long to be of any use to anyone outside of the "clique."  It's quite obvious that many who stay here too long either develop some kind of complex or deal with the differences between what they wanted and what they ahve by ranting away on forums all day.

Leave them be as you only feed their oddity by even...

Which store? Hunting down a power converter Re: Which store? Hunting down a power converter Chambertin

Any luck-

I cant find one either.  Looked at local stores and the lager ones like Hi-Mart.

 

EDIT:

I checked arround and couldnt find any of those stores.  However maybe that was a typo because "철물점" led me in the right direction.

However by then I had just given up and went to Lotte Mart and got one for about 30,000W.

Report racism and log racist accounts here! Re: Report racism and log racist accounts here! Our Great Teacher

I think essentially the good outweighs the bad here for foreigners.Where I'm from, the racism to Asians can be much worse compared to what happens here to foreigners. Bit of staring ,people practicing their Englishee , rude kids , getting rejected from businesses now and again.Big deal.

I think a thread focused on why f/t salaries have remained almost fixed...

Report racism and log racist accounts here! Re: Report racism and log racist accounts here! joe kimchi

My personal experience came when i interviewed with a major corporation in Korea.

The program manager from the office I would be working in, came into the room where the applicants were waiting to be interviewed and asked us the usual job applicant questions.

Then she singled me out in front of the other applicants and made a comment about my dark hair, my skin, my brown eyes....
