    Hey all,

    Is there anyone else in South Korea? Want to hang out? I'm near Busan (south-east corner of the country), but I love visiting new/different places...would be good to get together with other MFT shooters! :)

    Cheers,
    Tamas

    I left in June after having spent two years in Seoul. Happy to be back in Canada, although there is lots of stuff I miss. Like the food and Family Mart plastic chair beer drinking and the proximity to so many amazing places.

    Hey...a fellow Canuck!

    I'm going on 3 years now (one more and then I'm done)...yeah, really looking forward to being home, but there are plenty of pluses here as well (not the least being a comfortable life and good employment). I love how close it is to places...I went to Japan 3 times in the past 6 weeks without breaking the bank...good luck doing that form Canada! ;)

    Hi. I'm new to the site. I'll be in Seoul a significant amount of time this year. I'd love to meet up for a casual photo walk, and then maybe end up in a cafe (Cafe Bene and Paris Baguette are my faves) to chat afterward. I know my way around Seoul, but there is so much I still need to discover.

    Sadly, I just left Seoul a few months ago and I'm now in Washington state. Though I only went on two of their walks thanks to having to work most weekends, I'd suggest looking into Flickr in Seoul (https://www.flickr.com/groups/flickrinseoul/). They are a friendly group of people, and usually do 1-2 photo walks a month. Even exploring on your own, Seoul has a lot of fun sights and festivals to check out.

    Thanks. I did check out the flickrinseoul group before. It does not appear to have had any meet ups for a while. But I'll keep an eye on it.

    I'm in Seoul. Relocated here two years ago from the U.S. Absolutely love it here and there are so many great places for photo ops.

    Yep, I really enjoy taking pics in Seoul. Even the most mundane things seem interesting to me. Yesterday I was in Itaewon taking in the atmosphere, and snapping some shots.

    I'm fortunate enough to visit Seoul a couple of times most years. Love the place, amazing food, and the 7-11 out front plastic table and chair soju mixing is just so much awesome.

    I don't recommend going to a BBQ after, though. You end up putting everything on the BBQ...
