About Me

Seoul, Korea | Asia is a global resource for people visiting or living in South Korea!

Hello! My name is Max, and I’m so very flattered that you stopped by! This site is dedicated to learning about Korean culture and the best things to see & do in Korea, largely learned during my years as an English teacher in rural South Korea.

During a hike with my students in Goeun, South Korea in 2017.

I lived in the town of Yeongwol for 3 years, and now a couple years removed from life there and running websites for a living, I decided to start one about South Korea! I go back to visit each year (most recently in May 2022), and I have dozens of friends still living in Korea from all walks of life, so all my info stays up-to-date.

This site is part of my efforts to connect you to the most unique, beautiful, and special parts of Korea, so that you can fall in love with it just as much as I have.

I hope you’ll feel right at home here.
