A mix of South Korea ☸

This is a brief entry of when I was living in Seoul.

South Korean culture is unique in a sense where the culture is actually a mix of multiple other cultures. Together, they form the “Korean” culture which is unique to them.

In ancient monuments, historical sites & religion too, you will definitely notice the Chinese influence. Also in terms of religion & language, one can observe the many European styled cathedrals; as there are many Korean Catholics here. For the language part, most Koreans are able to speak perfect English, which shows that influence from the west is very strong.

And finally, for those Koreans not proficient in English language… You can be sure that most of them are able to speak rather fluent Japanese. That’s probably because Korea & Japan are neighbors and many Koreans will be sure to have at least one relative who resides in Japan.

As for the Japanese influence in Korean architecture, this would be the modern buildings, skyscrapers and of course; the shopping streets.

A mix-mash of east, south & west. This is what makes makes South Korea unique.

So… what’re you waiting for? Come ‘n’ visit Seoul right now!

I’m sure you’ll love it!
