What a $420/Month Apartment in Seoul Looks Like!

About a month ago I showed you guys my empty sad looking apartment (watch it here)

But now I have finally moved in!!!

My apartment is in Gangnam and costs me about $420 per month, including my water bill.

I still have to pay wifi, gas, and electric but that is pretty cheap :)

Let me know what you think!

In case you're thinking of moving to Korea one day, you can definitely find cheaper apartments.

I just prefer to live close to my office which is in an expensive area (Gangnam) but areas near universities like Hongdae or Sinchon can be much cheaper!

*instantly wants to move there so I don't have to go through the hassle of expensive American rent*
@ElsaRuiz @Aripendragon haha! I realized I didnt mention it!!! You can see it briefly at 11:45, it hangs from my wall :)
I lived in Hong Kong for a while and one of the places I lived in while there had a bathroom similar to that xD oh the memories xD I remember it took a little getting used to, but at least that means the bathroom floor should be pretty clean! XD
I live in Seoul and I did it via Airbnb until I can save enough money for my own place. paid $1,402 for 3 months in a shared apartment. so saving for an expensive deposit or, key money, is easy with a well paying job.
You should also check out the site Stayes for shared housing options! Good luck:)

Pros And Cons Of Stamped Concrete Driveways
Many homeowners tend to ignore their driveways when maintaining or renovating the exterior of their houses; they typically focus on the lawn, gardens, and landscaping. Having a lovely driveway is most times unappreciated but there are many reasons why improving the appearance of your driveway is just as important as renovating other parts of the house. The driveway is the first part of the house that most visitors will come in contact with; it is also likely the most visible part of the house. Thus, ensuring that the driveway is not only presentable but also gorgeous could easily make your house the best looking on the block. Why Concrete? Concrete is one of the best building materials for driveways today. It is long-lasting, durable and when properly decorated can be very stunning. Concrete can withstand all weather conditions without suffering any damage, is very affordable, and requires very minimal maintenance in the long run. This is perfect for homeowners who do not want to have to renovate their driveways every few years. Stamped concrete is one of the methods of decorating concrete. It involves the use of concrete stamps to design shapes and patterns into the concrete. A color-release agent is also embedded into the surface of the concrete. This produces a stunning design in the concrete that makes the area appear much more sophisticated. As lovely as stamped concrete is, it is important to consider its pros and cons below before deciding if it is the right fit for you. Pros One of the major advantages of using stamped concrete is its affordability. Concrete is generally much more affordable when compared to natural stone, pavers, or other building materials used to design driveways. Thus, stamped concrete provides affordability while being able to maintain beauty associated with other building materials. In addition to stamped concrete being durable, long-lasting, and easy to maintain, it also adds value to the home. In the event where you have to sell the house, stamped concrete increases its value and may even make that you get multiple offers. Cons One of the major downsides to using stamped concrete is that it requires a professional to install it. The process is quite complex, requires tools and equipment which are not typically found around the house, and extensive skills. For this reason, a homeowner cannot attempt to build it alone. Another disadvantage of using stamped concrete is that, although it lasts very long, the concrete can develop minor cracks after some years and these cracks are not very easy to repair. Also, stamped concrete requires periodic cleaning and sealing especially after years of use. Proper maintenance however prevents cracks which would save a lot of money in the long run. Conclusion Stamped concrete provides a lot of options for homeowners who are looking to make their driveways appear more appealing. It offers a wide variety of colors, shapes, and patterns that can imitate the appearance of tiles, wood, and bricks but which is so much more affordable. The decorative concrete however requires the skill of an experienced professional and cannot be done by homeowners, requires periodic maintenance, and is not very easy to repair.

Korean Winter Street Foods
Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: 군고구마 (kun go-gu-ma) 군 means "roasted" and 고구마 is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! 호떡 (ho-ddeok) 호떡 is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) 군밤 (kun bam) We just learned that 군 means roasted and now we learn another word: 밤 means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. 계란빵 (kye-ran bbang) 계란 means egg while 빵 means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after 군고구마 :D 호두과자 (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! 호두 means walnut and 과자 means cookie or snack. Therefore 호두과자 is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! 회오리감자 (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called 회오리감자 because 회오리 means tornado and 감자 means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow

Berber carpets are unique treasures in Moroccan culture Berbers have been used for a long time by Berber tribes and thus are still popular in most decorative and interior styles, inside and outside Morocco. Provided you choose the right rug. Because, besides his living reputation, he, unfortunately, became a large collection of counterfeit products, where new carpets were marketed as old tribal pieces.

Some many online sellers and suppliers claim to offer high-quality carpets and rugs from Morocco What many people fear is whether homemade carpets are old or not. Well, that's why one might have to testify to some of the information we will look into in this article. Here the most important thing is the age of this carpet. In this article we will all focus on:  Know its past life If your seller claims that the Moroccan rug you are buying is a vintage one then do ask for its past life. Many of the old and vintage handmade rugs in Morocco might have been used in the ancient household. Accordingly, one will find few signs that will authenticate this. The old Berber rug or any other vintage Moroccan rug, in fact, should have little stains of henna, candle wax, etc. Also, one can find few marks on that rug.

Restoration Difference Another important sign to look for in any Berber rug is the restoration signs. Vintage rugs are the rugs that were made before the 1990s. Manufacturers often clean these rugs and restore the torn pieces so that these can be used for home decor. If the Moroccan carpet like Beni ourain rug or boucherouite rug is truly vintage then you will definitely find a restoration difference. This might include a slight change in color or the stitching of the torn pieces. This restoration is done with extreme care so that Antique beauty and the vintage charm of the rugs are not compromised. With the above-mentioned information testify to your supplier for the vintage rug and buy the best one for your home decor.
Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!
Korean 101: Christmas in Seoul

It decorates like crazy for Christmas so I'm going to use some pictures as inspiration for a few Learn Korean words today :D Christmas decorations: 크리스마스의 장식 (keu-ri-seu-ma-seu jang-shik) Christmas stocking: 크리스마스 양말 (keu-ri-seu-ma-seu yang-mal) Christmas tree: 크리스마스 트리 (keu-ri-seu-ma-seu teu-ri) Pretty: 예쁘다 (ye-ppeu-da) Beautiful: 아름답다 (a-reum-dap-da) Cool!: 신기하다 (shin-ki-ha-da) Do you guys have places with cool decorations (장식) near you?! @RobertMarsh @darcmana @thePinkPrincess @AmbieB @XergaB20 @Ercurrent @adikiller @darcmana @JohnEvans @BtsIsLife @sherrysahar @Bose @NickySerban @EvelynBravo @KellyOConnor @CloverShadows @JasmineWilliams @VixenViVi @EllieDean @SHINee808 @BabySheep @KiKi29 @WiviDemol @KarlythePanda66 @ChrystalA @ElizabethT @Sinique @merryjayne13 @exoxerox @robertakm64 @exoxerox @Sarahwifi @ArmyofKookie @unbreakable1109 @saraortiz2002 @JezziCrypt @jannatd93 @panouvang123 @herreravanessa9 @cherriblossom17 @kpopisnylife @Rhia @RainaC3 @viparm @StephyBAP @Emealia @DekaraMiller @mistymaity @themrshongki @AbbyCoday @Exoexo @DestinyGLove @RishaDC @Baekyeol27 @Ilikepancakes @meoutofme @JosieAnime15 @LilMcGriddle18 @Aripendragon @LizaNightshade @DasiaB @Diajuni @zoila205 @ChoHee1 @aguileragissel @mjmora8 @Taisa @Belenrodexo @SamanthaLimon @GuerlyReyes @NysA @ckienitz @kamijo @LelaCrockett @JasminMartinez @paigelynnmag @shantalcamara @JeonJungkook17 @Thelovelyscout @swoopingisbad99 @yxngjia @JessicaSchnipke @RihannaTiaMay @QueenLele @faith12246 @lizdickson @thedopeshow1994 @chrissimari @animelova346 @Lizluvspurple @staceyholley @NellaKim @jeppblackmen @Cattt @nerdykeira @izzy08290 @kanatm @drewmortem @Izab3lla @qlo2011 @nerdykeira @lupemontserrat @MaeganHickerson @angelicpsyche @namyoongi @KayLu @blockbbum @CyrahImaniRich @NoChillSavana @theseoulofkiara @KirstieHocker @kaehyun702 @aiisson @JinAsh @cheesyginger64 @clenkendrick @hana09 @LilyVang @kawaiieeyxre @BrianniWilliams @LaynicornLay @thedaylifeofana @MichaelLosquadr @TayDee @jinstaekookie @JustinaMclean @DejaunaeSiders @alientae1095 @Alysworld @mellowsmootheex @KiroTheNeko @CatherineBrooks @Banime21 @AnimeInhale @stirlingite @BereniceEsparza @AlleyWoozi17 @JoanneJr @mrsfullbuster @NinzeePhyu @gabriellarramos @ManiGray @jenjenkhreim @GeraldoJacobo @justcallmekyki @CeilidhHoadley @MandySpaulding @hazell1013 @shellyfuentes70 @ChansyVang06 @HayleyEastman @mudkip @Shadowsfyre @BrittanyBelken @cheersmacky @KayleeLong @Chocolat09 @KaiOppa @oreofrenzy09 @lovebluecolor @Xmochachip @KaylaBurge @BreeHubler @coyote122014 @kchavens09 @ChelestiEdwards @Ninado @Swhitta @desesoray @VaneRodriguez @JazminQuiroz @AnnaArai @ReiRei @DanHenley @FelicianaRomero @kelleyvinh @DustanCarpenter @Jimidiot @NatalyaRodrigue @maivtsov @yohanlee127 @squishypanda @MikeKusanagi @KatieRussell @namjoonswife @ivyheart13 @OliviaMcAuley @Venisce @Taehyungie @rosepinkerton16 @BrendaValdez @ShannonSaysHey @Tiyanekia @twinxon @Saeda1320 @k8mccombs @ZitaMahoney @kvnguyen @Solimar @jader @AngelaLaurent @mari7 @kraft226 @CristalTrujillo @JHOPE1435 @MakenzieBonney @notgucci3 @AnelVega @Rainbowlady16
