I’ve seen this scene all too often and I just had to blog about it.
While wandering down a busy on a freezing Saturday evening, I see a girl in a short skirt outside a store called The Face Shop (english | korean) yelling into a microphone. I can only assume she’s giving the details of the specials that are going on and trying to entice you to come inside and check them out.
Sometimes, they take turns yelling at the people who pass. Mostly, they yell over each other. It’s weird because they aren’t direct competitors business-wise. One sells lotion and the other sells ice cream. But they seem to be at each other’s throats!
Who is the winner? The answer is clear once you check out this video.
I used to think Kraze Burgers had a pretty strong selection of hamburgers. I also thought the Friday’s Burger at T.G.I. Friday’s (the only hamburger they have) was mighty tasty. But now I don’t think I can ever go to those restaurants again! Those burgers aren’t bad by any means. It’s just that they can never compete with Smokey Saloon.
I stumbled upon Smokey Saloon while wandering around Itaewon looking for a nice place for a Sunday brunch. I didn’t know what it was but I saw a line of people waiting to get in so it must be good right? I never see that at restaurants in Korea.
Smokey Saloon has multiple burger combinations for your choosing. They also have a few sandwiches and a shrimp burger if you want to unleash your inner korean.
I chose the “Ambulance” which has a fried egg on top, 2 slices of bacon, American cheese, and a hash brown on the bottom. I topped them off with a side of coleslaw and “sloppy” fries (chili cheese fries).
The entire meal was fantastic. (See more pictures below!) But don’t take my word for it. See what Candice has to say about it in this video taken inside of Smokey Saloon, where, I do declare, you will find the best burgers in South Korea.

Since we’ve been living in Korea, people from back home have been asking us many different questions about what life is like here, such as:
- What does a shower look like in Korea?
What should I expect in Korea?
What should I prepare for in Korea?
What surprises should I prepare for in Korea?
What are some cultural differences in Korea?
One of the first cultural differences that Jermil and I experienced in Korea is THE SHOWER!!!
There are no words that can explain a traditional Korean shower, so I’ve put together a video for you. During the filming, I happened upon Jermil!
They started around 8am and didn’t stop until 10am. I don’t have to be to work until 1 so I usually get up around 11ish. They really tried to ruin my Tuesday living in Tanbangdong!
I found a ridiculously tall tower on an insanely tall mountain in South Korea (see pictures below the video!). The Koreans call it N Seoul Tower. The N stands for Namsun which is the mountain which the tower sits on.
I’ve been there twice in my life and I think since you’re reading this, you should go at least once.
Here’s how to get there:
1) Take the subway to Myeongdong (Line 4, stop 424)
2) Watch this video (also below) for directions once you get there.
3) Or if you think my videos suck…
a) Take exit 3 and go up the hill for about 10 minutes then up the stairs.
b) Or take exit 4, go to the big intersection straight out of the subway, go left towards the Namsun tunnel, and take the stairs or elevator up to the tower.
