(This maybe my own experience). First my apology to write this one in English. After 4 months living in Seoul, I noticed that it is really hard for a foreigner to get close into a group of Korean friends. In another party, i was discussing with my roommate and some of my Korean friends. They all admitted that they do not want to introduce a new friend into their closed friend group. They explained that it would create an awkward moments for their closed friends, since it would take them a lot of time to get to know another "stranger" member. So would those explanations be true? Or it depends on the personality of difference person?

Well.. My thoughts are different from your friends'. I like bringing new friends to my old group and introudcing each other so we all can hang out from next time. I don't mind meeting a new person and most of my friends are cool with that. So I don't agree with the akward period to get to know the stranger stuff but I can tell it can be hard for foreigners to fit in a korean group if they don't speak Korean.. I mean fluent enough to have conversations with koreans. Because my friends want to hang out with foreigners but they don't speak English so they think it would be really awakrd.
