Since I'm leaving South Korea in just one month (cry), I have been doing a little spring cleaning and decided that now is the time to post a video blog tour of my apartment. Along with the tour, I've included on some tips for moving out, specifically how you can reach out and sell some items to people who are just moving in.
I hope this video gave you a better idea of what an apartment in South Korea could look like. They are all a bit different. In fact, one of my fellow teacher friends snagged a loft, which is awesome. I've really enjoyed living in my non-loft for a year though. It's a great space. If you're interested in filling up the space and buying (or selling) furniture, looking at the classifieds on KoreaBridge was really the easiest way. Usually when a teacher is leaving, they will sell furniture and other household items for super cheap, and sometimes they will help you move it in to your own apartment as well! It's a good way to make new friends.
Another way to sell or buy items is to join Facebook groups in your area. I am a part of several Busan groups, and one Jangsan group, which is the exact neighborhood where I live. Posting items to buy or sell in these groups guatantees that the item is already close by, which is perfect for when you want to bring in some furniture.
After graduating from Emerson College with a BA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, Ariel Rosen looked back on the semester she spent traveling around Europe and decided she must explore Asia. Her teaching job with ChungDahm April in Busan allows her to experience South Korea firsthand and with the enthusiasm of all the children she teaches. She is overjoyed to share a class with them and finds herself learning more from them and the bright beach city around her everyday.
