Beyond Surviving South Korea: Top 5 Tips for an Awesome Life

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 in | Comments Off on Beyond Surviving South Korea: Top 5 Tips for an Awesome Life

I’ve been living in Korea for almost 10 years and I’ve met plenty of people who were thriving, but I’ve also seen people who were just surviving, and just barely in some cases. Some of these people who were only surviving had been living here for years. Don’t let it happen to you! Create a happy life for yourself in your adopted home. Here are my top 5 tips to help you have an awesome life in South Korea. Build a Large Network ASAP In any country in the world, it’s all about who you know. In Korea, it’s even more important because people are always coming and going and you’re constantly having to make new friends. Having a large network can be extremely beneficial for the following reasons: -to get information that you need (Which doctor speaks English in Ulsan?) -help, when you don’t have your family close by (car accident, job loss, etc.) -job opportunities (many university jobs are filled this way) -fun! A bigger network means more social opportunities My top tip for building a large network is to accept as many non-sketchy invitations as possible when you move to a new place, even for activities that wouldn’t normally be your thing. Be friendly, go with the flow and you’ll meet...

MERS – What You Should Know

Posted by on Jun 6, 2015 in | Comments Off on MERS – What You Should Know

The internet in Korea is buzzing with information about the MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). The rumour mills also have been running day in and day out which is confusing the issue for most people who are concerned about the safety of their families and themselves. The Canadian Embassy now warns about following media reports during this time and suggests heading to credible sources  of information like WHO website Also noted from the letter sent out by the Canadian Embassy is that, as of this time, there are no restrictions on entry into Canada. However, they stated that people coming into Korea may face increased passenger screening. The Ulsan Metropolitan Police have issued prevention flyers in many languages to help inform people of precautionary measures to help stop the spread of the virus. As of now, no schools in the Ulsan area have been shut down because of the virus. However, if you are working in a school or crowded area, I would advise you to wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer. Since the disease is not airborne, practicing general hygiene with help reduce the risk. A particular troublesome spot noted on the facebook page is the number people who do not cover their mouths when coughing. However, with the increased spotlight on...

Posted by on Jun 3, 2015 in | Comments Off on The Wealthy Teacher: An Interview with Jackie Bolen

The expat community in Ulsan is very diverse but a large portion of the population are English teachers. While the money is decent for young single people, it may not be the best job in the long run.

Independant Culture in Ulsan

Posted by on Mar 18, 2015 in | Comments Off on Independant Culture in Ulsan

By Philip Brett Ulsan is an industrial city. This has not changed. In 2012 I was informed that the only things to do here were drinking and shopping. That has certainly changed over the last few years. Whether you’re new to the city or just looking for something new to do about town, here’s a (in no way comprehensive) list of options. Go support your local scene, or better yet – get involved. Make music, organise a show, or...

Old Downtown is Ready for Christmas

Posted by on Dec 16, 2014 in | Comments Off on Old Downtown is Ready for Christmas

Over the next few weeks, I encourage you to take a walk in Seongnamdong or “Old Downtown” as many expats call it. For the longest time it was the hangout of middle school students and old people. However, like most things it has been making a comeback in many ways. For the most part the old charm of the area still exist. Dank alleyways with interesting shops still exist but are slowly being replaced with trendy cafes and fashionable...
