Korea Shopping and Life Costs

K-PoD: Life In Korea

Shopping in Korea, online shopping in Korea, Korean clothes and fashion, food costs in Korea, and services in Korea can be a good or bad experience while living in South Korea.

The costs of living in South Korea can be cheaper than the current country you are in and South Korea can be a great place to save money if done the correct way!  Korean clothing, fashion, sizes, food, online shopping, markets, street markets, haircuts, and services in Korea can have their advantages.

Scott, Adam, Marco, and returning guest Saber talk about the costs of living in Korea, online shopping in Korea, finding clothes, the service industry in Korea, food shopping, and more!

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