Embark on Your South Korean Expat Life

South Korea is a fascinating and truly individual country, with its own unique cultural charms. As a leading innovator in many areas of technological advancement, robotics firms, social media companies, and other technology start-ups are doing booming business. With some of the fastest (and getting faster) average internet speeds in the world, South Korea is a haven for nerds and gamers all over the world and is also a big draw for international expats looking for economic opportunities, and a new life, in a new country. Life in South Korea can prove hard to adjust to for many expats, especially Westerners, with cramped (yet thoroughly modern) living conditions in the bigger cities and the lack of international culture the further away from urban centers you go. Luckily, our vibrant and welcoming community in South Korea is here to help, with a friendly group of international people for you to connect with and from whom you can get answers to your questions.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Australia or United States of America, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Get to Know Interesting People Even before You Move to South Korea

South Korean culture is friendly, with co-workers and neighbors taking a keen interest in getting to know and understand each other. Bearing that in mind, expats are unlikely to lack for social interaction, even if you don’t speak the language. Having said that, however, it’s always enjoyable to relax and speak to like-minded people in a foreign land, so InterNations offers a wide array of activities and groups for South Korean expats. From day trips to local beaches and Korean movie nights (Korean cinema is famed worldwide for its daring and innovative approach to movie making) to wine tasting and singles nights, there's something for the expat of every persuasion in InterNations' community of expats in South Korea; if you can tear yourself away from your smartphone or latest computer game, that is.
