Looking for a place to live in Korea for the summerโ€ฆ Family (2 adults, 1 child). Is there any other resources out there other than airbnb?
ngubdfnvuxa3mo
kfzbekcfwykcu do you live in Korea with family?
pgxcfunkxocu3mo
I am just traveling alone I am afraid
ftxiuc3mo
Hi Everyone, I'm in Korea (currently in Seoul right near Gangnam station) for the next month and looking for recommendations on good coworking spaces. Anyone have experience here? There are tons of spaces around, and I can comb through all the reviews, but would love any personal recommendation :slightly_smiling_face:.
wlijk3mo
swqmtpc Iโ€™m at WeWork Yeoksam 2, if you wanna drop by. You looking to book a subscription for a month?
pfomzzgjo3mo
Iโ€™m at ECS153 at seolleung and I like it so much Iโ€™m hesitant to even share it on nomadlist lol. the 24/7 access has saved my life since I work for a startup in california and the vibe is so perfect
pjbonfmpr3mo
what is Elancer? a KR company?
shbgrgcwi3mo
Yeah itโ€™s basically like the upwork of korea. The CEO of elancer actually works out of the coworking space himself and is a really friendly guy
dnbnlmhflyor3mo
cool!
qfidnrjef3mo
ahh cool
jsvbpgoms3mo
Korean guy?
evlsntjdu3mo
Yup. Heโ€™s been doing elancer here for like almost 20 years now and he told me he believes the working structure of korea is too rigid (obviously) but he bet a long time ago that people would want more freedom in their work so itโ€™s interesting to talk to him since heโ€™s been in the space so long
bksiujywm3mo
very international set of people here though. Mostly KR small teams (startups?) but some french and canadian folks too and myself
tvgbd3mo
kptnwwtxjx nice find! Iโ€™ll have to check it out, looks better than the WeWork Iโ€™m at :)
xvnxkqldj3mo
yeah join me! ๐Ÿ˜„
etdiugocr3mo
although lately Iโ€™m basically fully nocturnal because weโ€™ve been having tons of meetings so even if you come Iโ€™m not around much during normal working hours
lpgqti3mo
Sounds like a good spot, are you renting monthly? I only see information about monthly membership, I would be looking at something more like a week.
fiuixeuic3mo
I do monthly. One time I did a month and they let me extend by another two weeks though and pay for that separately
For me I do have to put a 1 month deposit down (it gets returned after my time is up) and sign a contract even though Iโ€™m just renting a month. Kind of a hassle but Iโ€™m under the impression itโ€™s due to SK regulations or something, and that theyโ€™d prefer to streamline the process but currently canโ€™t
jdchx3mo
looks like prison ๐Ÿ˜‚
mcjac3mo
on a more fun note, has anyone made any home brew alcohol? looking to make some cider at home
yygvgx3mo
I made a few batches of โ€œbucket wineโ€ while in the Peace Corps. Itโ€™s fairly easy to do, the hard part is getting an end product that tastes really good :P
ydvguk3mo
I found the โ€œyoung wineโ€ always tasted the best, so drinking early before the fermentation fully completed.
rtwevn3mo
I used mango, coconut, and vanilla in my experiments. Coconut was the best.
maxhch3mo
But you want to make cider, thatโ€™s a whole other animal that Iโ€™m not familiar with. Good luck!

Does anyone in this group have recommendations for interesting Korean language podcasts? Ideally not Kdrama or Kpop related. Or news. Just, like, a Korean language equivalent of This American Life or Radiolab or Tedtalks...? Do these even exist?
sgyxzhayz2mo
the name of the podcast is "๊ทธ๊ฒƒ์€ ์•Œ๊ธฐ ์‹ซ๋‹ค" (=I dont wanna know that)
hdhjnjufsdbe2mo
excellent, thank you wpyklseqyt
mlqvjbylv2mo
it's made by the first Korean language rapper in Korea
qdvhwokog2mo
and then he got famous
ptcjwqzfw2mo
then he hated fame
rcminrjfu2mo
so he started a podcast
wxygwxpqw2mo
and now a podcast company
ukoehcrpc2mo
it's very much like This American Life's political leaning + talking
kwfambnk2mo
oh thatโ€™s pretty cool
flkzmcnn2mo
btw gdwxuyonib howโ€™s your korean language?
dmdyadtpl2mo
non-existant
xnpixpbbb2mo
I'll be happy to learn Chinese cause it has >1B ppl but not Korean with only 50-100M ppl
zxpsmlxlg2mo
I learnt Spanish cause >500M ppl
fjxvnmcyv2mo
have to pick the right language to put my resources in
puqpwibei2mo
unpopular opinion I think smaller languages like Dutch, Korean will disappear anyway and we'll all just switch to English/Chinese/Spanish/Hindi
wcnortmmq2mo
LatAm will stay Spanish, Europe will switch to English, Asia will be English with Chinese
vtjlbbgfn2mo
and I have no intention to try assimilate in countries where my odds of assimilating are close to zero, like Japan and Korea
kutgvxiee2mo
poxpzfaas2mo
I'd have a better chance in China or Thailand
eoojnoet2mo
ha interesting
ytoalscb2mo
very pragmatic approach I would say!
buzsnlzch2mo
Related Dutch rappers now rap English Dutch Arabic mixed
aqjokzgus2mo
Dutch going extinct
pyttglln2mo
๐Ÿค”
wxbfbyobv2mo
Is good
awwhpbkj2mo
trying to find a niche probably
syywsmrfu2mo
Dutch just becoming less popular
eeustkscw2mo
English is the lingua franca ๏ฟผ
awynuvlrc2mo
Ye
xmyqdhcwu2mo
Surely Iโ€™m paranoid but Iโ€™m cutting my time in Seoul short. Risk is minuscule now but I donโ€™t want to wait around if general international travel gets affected etc. Will be in the USA by sunday. Stay safe everybody, wash ur hands
jpivviqbv2mo
vgarahyhha wise choice I think
shmglsbpc2mo
Worst case nothing happens, best case you're in good place
svjec2mo
Seoul isnโ€™t a bad place to get stuck though, you can self-quarantine and order everything via delivery, and never have to leave the house.
medqylsru2mo
Yes totally
ripqbdcsv2mo
I wonder how easy it spreads through food or when delivery ppl touch box
dhonbhgke2mo
I guess not a lot
frgslg2mo
Haha, speaking of delivery, what food delivery app is best for non-Korean speakers?
sbfuz2mo
When I first came here, I screenshot+google translate OCR everything, worked good enough to sign up for almost anything. Itโ€™s too bad Uber Eats left Korea.
svxksyvdy2mo
wish korean apps would do more english interfaces
jfgpyvdmx2mo
Kakao Taxi finally went English when olympics happened
fcxklrbtzdhuv2mo
From how little English seems to be spoken there, it seems like a lot to ask
djwiodvt2mo
this is a good point
lapcbikko2mo
Update- that was an anxiety-inducing travel experience to say the least. Airplane full of people coming from high risk areas. Everyone in masks all 12hrs. Some medical screening before we got on the plane of select people. Some questioning of people at the gate about where they were coming from etc. Tons of coughing and sick-seeming people. Were held at arrival gate because of two passengers who fell ill during the flight and they were pulled off first for paramedics to screen them before we were let off the plane. I'm back at my parents house now and we're basically self quarantining here alone for 2 wks just cuz. Tldr if you're thinking about traveling at this point I'd say only do it if you have a good reason to
etqfoojlnicme2mo
Oof, that doesn't bode well
xfzqayrfr2mo
dkjobcdsnv jesus, I was planning SG -> NL soon but maybe not
fucsmokmi2mo
Why were you on a plane full of high risk ppl?
saakvjqjp2mo
My guess is ICN was a layover for people. Many were catching connections from MSP to other places in the USA too
aajfhfwanacp2mo
Initially had a flight to Bali with 2 days in Singapore, will probably switch to another flight where I just have 2 hour stopover in Moscow.
zblnlz2mo
drrazmupks you should be fine. SG is closed for travellers from Mainland China now (even transit, from what I've been told) so your risk should be minimal. I'm still travelling SYD - SIN - KUL in the next couple of weeks.
emnneuwjd2mo
oh ur a Chacha driver?
tljoxlbpr2mo
zxxmlfvibr yes, chacha driver.
vbolowfqm2mo
ah yes this isn't the place to advertise that unfortunately
fnnsvpyfqbg19d
The flight from Maputo > Jburg > Accra > Dulles was cancelled
