Friendship In South Korea (Episode 70 of K-PoD: Life In Korea)

K-PoD: Life In Korea

Friendship can have its pros and cons while living in South Korea.

If you’ve spent time in South Korea or are thinking about moving to South Korea, you are going to make new friends and at some point, have to say good-bye to them.  Whether it’s you or them that leave, you can make life long friends here and it can be difficult when it’s time to part ways.

Scott, Adam, and Marco talk about friends coming and going during their time in Korea, making new friends, having Korean friends, and all the benefits and difficulties of friendship while living abroad.

It’s all about FRIENDSHIP in Korea on this episode of K-PoD!
