My apartment in Korea: a virtual tour

Many people have been wondering what my apartment is like in Seoul. This video will show you the atmosphere of a Korean apartment in detail while filling you in on the basics of an apartment building in Seoul. I live in an office tel apartment. They are all studios and some people work in them, while others like me live in them. Because it is an office tel apartment, my building is much quieter at night because the only people coming and going are those that live there. To learn more about finding an apartment in Korea visit finding an apartment in Korea to read more articles.

Your apartment is really pretty, but it seems a bit small. Which part of Seoul are you living at? I lived in Suraksan and rent was 550,000 won a month for nearly 50% larger than your apt (almost triple the closet space). But my apt wasn't as nice though. I'm in Busan now, paying 300,000 won for the same size apt.

hey anonymous!

I live just one block from historic Insadong in Seoul. Specifically Jongno. The rent is also 550,000 which is considered great for this area because it is so close to everything downtown like, Insadong, Samcheongdong, and Gwangwamun.

Its definitely smaller than apartments further from the city. But my goal was to never have to take the subway to work. I walk 10 minutes to work each day, and love being this close to everything in the city. So I definitely sacrifice space for the lower rent here! But then again you get used to it and find creative ways to store things!

Thank you for this virtual tour! Your style reminds me of our Long Island home builders. Though simple, it's very calm and cozy inside.

Hi! Your Korean apartment was really cute and close to some great areas! Just wondering why you ended up having to pay for half your rent and not living in one provided by your company? What did you do with your piano when you left? x

I had to pay because that's just how my contract was! Also, I sold everything via Craigslist! I also sold my bike online in Japan on Craigslist!
