Apartment Tour in Sejong City, South Korea

Here is an old video of a small apartment tour in a new city that I’m living in call Sejong City in South Korea. The city opened in July 2012 and I arrived in Korea at the end of January 2015. The apartment that I am living in was one of the first few apartments that was built in the city and there are still many apartments being built. The newer the apartments the more nice it is 🙂

If you guys have any questions about South Korea or what it’s like living here or in a new city, message me or leave me a comment. Still trying my best to stay updated. Tomorrow I’ll be getting LASIK so I’ll probably be away for awhile. Anyways, Happy Chuseok everyone!

Dream Come True

I’m finally in South Korea and it’s not just for visiting. I LIVE here! 😀 Haven’t blogged for a while and really need to get back.

Back in university I have always been interested in the Korean culture because watching a bunch of Korean Drama and listening to K-POP. During and after university I have always wanted to visit South Korea, I wanted to go through the places I would see in the Korean drama. Then instead of saying I started doing. In June 2014 I took about a week off from work to go to South Korea and right when I landed and stepped foot into the country, I fell in love. I had a friend who was living in South Korea and met up with her for awhile. Honestly, to me, being in South Korea felt like as if I was in the Korean Drama. Things you see in the drama would be a lot like the things you see in the country (which makes sense since they are filmed there and I can say the same about America). After my vacation was over I told my friend how much I missed it there and how I envy her for living there. So she told me to just move here as well. It took me a month to convince myself to do so. And it took me about 7 months to actually make it happen, to pack my bags and say good bye to America and Hello South Korea.

So here I am today, 7 months later living in Sejong City, South Korea. Sejong City is south of the capital Seoul and it’s a brand new city. By brand new city I mean this area used to be all mountains 3 years ago and they knocked everything down and built a city. Crazy huh? But that’s just how South Korea is. They make a lot of new cities and Korea tends to build things very quickly. They built a convenient store near my apartment within a week!

There’s a little update on my life. I’ll try my best to keep you all posted and see how interesting my life is in another country 😉
