Italians living abroad are often wary of restaurants prominently displaying our national flag and sporting Italian names, so I was dubious as I approached La Coppia in the alleys behind Hyundai Dept Store, despite my Korean lunch companion having warmly recommended it (or perhaps because of it). As I clumsily tried to brave the three [...] moreYoungsang Cafe and Gallery
There’s a neat little place in Namgu, that might be of interest to anyone who is in to art, photography or especially cameras. The place is called Youngsang Cafe (영상카페). It’s been around since 2006 and has seen many alterations to its décor and menu, but there are some constants which make this place absolutely [...] moreGracias, Brazilian Tragedy
I’ve been lucky to hit up a lot of good restaurants doing reviews for this site. Sadly, to quote Q, all good things must come to an end. I have seen the dark side and I hope to save all of you from it. A while back I had heard there was a Brazilian [...] moreGrappa Pizzeria and Pub – Now in Dong-gu!
By Todd L. Greene Taking its name from the strong, white-graped digestivo (liqueur), Grappa has just opened facing the seaside, separated only by a small garden plot from KG Western Pub. From my conversation with Viviana, they had a previous location in Samsan-dong. Upon entering, one first notices a large poster in the back of [...] more
From Facebook: On Saturday, December 7th, JJ’s Bar will be celebrating its one year anniversary and wow, such an awesome year it’s been.

We want to make this our biggest and craziest party yet, but, [...] moreRoyal Anchor’s American Thanksgiving

Recently, the Lotte Hotel has opened a new bar on their top floor, which offers a classy, relaxed environment overlooking the city. This is definitely a place to go for a nice drink on a special evening. The waitstaff are dressed in formal clothes, the music is soft (and not K-pop), the lights are dim, [...] more
In regional news, the Chinese telecom giant Huawei has signed a partnership with LG Uplus to build a new LTE network. The US Government previously stopped Huawei from building a wireless network stateside over concerns that it could have been used to gather intelligence for China.

The shipping costs have [...] moreCan you help this pup?

By Deirdre Madden Over the Chuseok holiday, my significant other and I went on a road trip to a part of the country I had yet to explore, Jeollanamdo and the west coast. We began by setting off late, revising our route to make up for lost time, and then taking a wrong turn on [...] moreOctober Festivals
Fall is arguably the best season in Korea – clear blue skies (when there are no typhoons in the neighbourhood), warm sunny days, cool crisp nights – it’s a great time to head out and explore the country-side as the rice paddies turn to gold, and the trees display their garish autumn colours. Here are [...] moreJoseon Pottery Made in Ulsan
By 황정원 (Hwang Jeong Won) It is our first picnic. My English teacher, my classmate Zoe and I went to Wang Bang Yo in Wang Bang village just outside of Ulsan. We passed by Munsu stadium (on Highway 7) and drove toward Busan. I turned right towards Yang-san and Tong-do-sa at the Dae-Bok [...] more
