Earthquake in Korea: Safety Words!

There was an earthquake in Korea last night off the coast of Ulsan (slightly north of Busan)

(minor, no huge damage reported but there is a risk of mud slides!)

Here's the word for earthquake:

지진 - Ji-jin

Here are a few words to know if you're in an earthquake in Korea:

도와주세요! - Please help!

(doh-wah-ju-seh-yo)

주의 - Caution

(joo-ui)

비상구 - Emergency Exit

(bi-sang-gu)

기다려요 - Wait, stay

(gi-da-ryeo-yo)
But really, if you're experiencing an earthquake, find something hard and stable to hide under. Running around trying to get out of a building can actually hurt you more as you might fall or be hit by falling objects. Try to wait out the shaking, then find a way out.

Have you ever felt an earthquake?

I'm from Southern California so I've been in quite a few :/

I been in at least 2 earthquakes...but The one ive been in 3 years ago was like 7.2 magnitude...it was really scary especially since I saw wires that were hanging sway from left to right so fast
yep, just heard from my friend who is in a city just outside of Busan... all of my friends are fine... nobody was hurt
I experienced a minor one during my trip to alaska. Btw I am also from cali too 😁
none of my friends who live there have said anything about it so it must not be too bad
had one in Massachusetts a couple years back

Things You Can Do ONLY in Korea!
If you’re planning your trip to Korea and have only shopping and eating on your list, I can't blame you. Korea’s pretty awesome for that. But don’t forget to do some unique things you can ONLY do in Korea. Here’s 5 to get you started: For five more, check out Seoulistic's list --> http://goo.gl/xwIsQ7 1. Stay in a Korean traditional house Hanok villages are a beautiful way to take in the traditional culture of Korea. Be it in Seoul, Gyeongju, or Jeolla, these homes are a great window into the past. You won't get an experience like this anywhere else on earth. 2. Mud wrestle while enhancing your skin The Boryeong Mud Festival was started in 1998 to promote the local therapeutic mud, this annual festival has become extremely popular among both locals and expats, drawing more than 2 million people! Grab your friends and hit the mud! 3. Declare everlasting love from Seoul’s most scenic point Seoul’s Namsan Tower gained popularity due to the actions of two television stars. In order to declare everlasting love, the couple wrote a message on a lock, attached it to the fence on Namsan Tower and threw away the key. Now, you can not only see thousands and thousands of locks and love messages here, but you can also create your own. Feel free to purchase your lock or phone case ahead of time or buy them at the gift shop upon arrival. 4. Visit the only kimchi museum in the world Where else in the world will you be able to go to a museum solely dedicated to the Korean staple, kimchi? This is a foodie’s dream. Kimchi, or seasoned fermented vegetables, is at the heart of Korean culture and its food and is usually eaten with every meal. Few people also know that there is not only 1 type of kimchi but 187 different documented types, ranging from kimchi of different ripeness levels to water kimchi, cucumber kimchi, and radish kimchi varieties! 5. Eat Korean street food with drunk locals under a packed tent at 4am Koreans not only like to go out to a lot of different spots when they go out, but they also stay out really late. After going to a bar or a club for a few hours, it’s inevitable that you get hungry. What better place to go to eat than underneath an orange, outdoor tent? Grab some spicy rice cakes or fish cake and soak up the night life.
