[Ask Hyojin] Living outside of Seoul in Korea

Download Available

When people think about living in Korea, a lot of people think of living in Seoul. Seoul is the biggest and probably the busiest city with the biggest population in Korea. More people bring more business, so there are more shops, cultural events, etc., which can be one of the many perks of living in Seoul compared to living in other parts of Korea. However, more people also mean more traffic and possibly more troubles. Some people prefer to live in Seoul and some prefer to choose other cities.

In this episode of Ask Hyojin, Hyojin is joined by Hyunwoo who was born and raised in Gwangju, and Janelle who is originally from the US and spent three years in Daejeon to talk about pros and cons of living outside of Seoul. Enjoy!

We Are Opening a Coffee Shop in Seoul

안녕하세요, 여러분! Hi everybody. This is Hyunwoo from TTMIK. We have been making Korean lessons for everybody for five years now, and we love meeting our listeners (you!) in person and talking to them in Korean as well as hearing about how everyone is learning with our lessons.

Until now, however, it has been often difficult to actually meet up with many of you because we did not have an official meeting venue. Some of you have already visited our office before, but we couldn’t really accommodate you well because, well, it’s an office and we have a ton of things going on for the production of the online lessons and books.

그래서 이번 여름에 홍대에 저희 커피숍을 오픈할 예정이에요! ^^
So we are VERY happy and excited to announce that we will be opening our own coffee shop in Seoul this summer!
