Jangsan is kind of an enigma. I can’t walk from my building to the subway station (about 50 meters) without seeing other foreigners that apparently work and/or live in the area. When I walk around during the day they’re everywhere. When I eat at Starlite or Quiznos or run into a coffeeshop, there they are. Yet somehow, as soon as it gets dark, the foreigners seem to disappear.
I guess it’s not really a mystery. To the rest of Busan, the green subway line might as well just end at Haeundae. I know I’ve never gotten far in convincing my non-Jangsan friends to venture into the barren nether-regions that lay beyond the most famous beach in Korea. So invariably we Jangsanites are pulled into other neighborhoods to socialize without our friends ever returning the favor.
