Small business license for Westerners? No problem. My email can be 143busan
No problem. My email can be found here but just in case...it's 143busan@gmail.com. Price of property is actually one of the highest in the world in Seoul. I'm thinking top 5 or so. It is much less here.

non-payment of salaries Blacklist support manager

The bottom line for Koreabridge is that these types of posts have the potential to cause too many legal and managerial headaches.  I do think it's important to hold employers accountable and would be interested in collaborating with existing blacklist sites and those to come (Wakold, perhaps you're interested in starting one?).  

Aside from referring people to these sites, I...

Korean Mother-In-Law Diaries Midwest America so... wakold

So you were making 5000$ per month, and saving up to 3500$ out of your earning, and now you don't have enough money to buy yourself a beer?

Maybe you spent a bit too much money on  Ukrainian Lotte Dancers and Uzbek hostess girls?

Does anyone know where to get Spin bike/ exercise equipment? I can't think of anywhere shav0017

I can't think of anywhere specifically, but I have a set of 4 KG (a little over 8 1/2 pounds) weights and a jump rope, and a fitness band I could sell you.  (and possibly a yoga mat and fitness ball, but haven't quite decided if I want to sell them yet!)  I live by Haeundae Beach (jung-dong exit) and work in Centum City, if you're interested shoot me an email or give me a text/call...

Busan Centum Hospital My wife had a terrible DavidRushbrook

My wife had a terrible experience at this hospital! Barely anyone spoke English for starters! Things were dirty and they let her lay in vomit soaked sheets until I demanded they change them! When they changed them that set had big holes in it! It was an overall terrible experience! We both would recommend going anywhere but here!

Small business license for Westerners? Thanks 143Busan for your rov25

Thanks 143Busan for your reply,

Would you mind emailing me on roinchina@yahoo.co.uk to have your email as a reference in case I need your translation services?

I assume you're based in Busan, and from what I can see on this website rents seem lower than Seoul, is the business activity the same, it goes in proportion with...

non-payment of salaries I don't understand wakold

I don't quite understand why somebody cannot tell the name of a Hagwon which didn't pay them.

On a personal opinion kind of note, I think mister the manager moderator seems to be a bit too concerned about comments and should just let people write what they think. And if somebody got ripped off from a Hagwon, why not prevent some other people from being ripped off too?

Small business license for Westerners? OK...the answer to your first 143busan

OK...the answer to your first question is yes.  A foreigner can operate a business on their own without the partnership of a Korean.  The laws differ a bit and as I've always said here, I'm not lawyer...but I can assure you that it is completely possible to obtain.  Rather than seeking a lawyer though, is to find someone who can translate for you and visit Seoul City Hall first...

Travel restrictions re-entering South Korea? return kwaz666

Never heard of any problems with going to Japan, if it was like that, there wouldn't be so many visa runs.

Just don't go to Hong Kong unless you have your return ticket to your home country handy. THose guys are strict. I don't wanna go back there just cause of that bad experience.

Tax Returns? Do foreign teachers qualify for a tax return? tax kwaz666

You do qualify for tax return. Just file at the end of the year. Your school should provide you with the proper documents. Depending on which country you come from you will recieve 100% of your taxes back.

Best kebabs in Busan - Seomyeon Big Boy! Good to hear. Is he using mattsid

Good to hear. Is he using that yummy yogurt sauce and decent veggies (lettuce, onion, tomato, cabbage etc. ) or just that nasty sweetish tomato based sauce with just cabbage that the majority of the kebab places do in this town?

need computer guy who can help fix my laptop. You should take it down to mattsid

You should take it down to Gaya computer town near Gaegeum. There are dozens of shops there that will be able to check it out. Computer talk is the same the world over so communicating the basic problem shouldn't be a problem. Repalcement cost shouldn't set you back an arm and  a leg either.

Directions. Take Line 2 to Dong Eui University station. Forget the exit but you want to...

While we are experimenting with comments on job ads, we still do not plan to provide a blacklist kind of space.

need computer guy who can help fix my laptop. Be Careful... JayLo

Does your computer actually turn on and working with the HDD (hard drive) clicking? Or not start at all (stuck at startup or dump to DOS)? 

Clicking sound on HDD as your internet research is suggesting is failed HDD (mechanical), not fixable within most people's budget. I'd copy whatever information thats on the computer (documents, pictures...

Do you think comments should be allowed on classified ads? I agree... SolidChamp

I think that the classified ads that have been posted as of late are severly lacking in common sense.  People are asking FAR too much for their stuff and it's really quite sad to see expats trying to nickel and dime people from their own community.  Anyone asking ridiculous prices deserves to be put in their place, and people who are unknowledgable in such things who are just looking...

Do you think comments should be allowed on classified ads? Comments on classified dcross

Comments on classifieds serve a good purpose and should stick around.  Answering questions about items publicly so that you dont get calls with the same question is a big one, but getting feedback is cool too.

Hairdresser that knows western hair You want to go check out a mattsid

You want to go check out a place called The Hair in Namcheon Dong. The guy there trained at Vidal Sassoon in London, speaks great English and knows western hair. Hence a pretty large foreign clientelle.

To get there get the subway to Namcheon station on line 2. Exit 3 and take your first left. Walk down to the bottom of this street and take a right at the bottom the shop is on your...

Finding postcards? postcards in Nampo-dong everlong

You can find postcards at the Busan tower in Yongdusan park which is located in Nampo-dong. Also, you can just stroll around in the underground mall in Nampo and find tons of souvenir shops that sell them. Finally, you can find more souvenirs (including postcards) at Gukje market which is also in Nampo-dong. Basically, Nampo-dong is a good place to find souvenirs. Hope this helps!
