tattookorea_studio3

The first thing to know about getting a tattoo in Korea is that it’s most likely illegal. How’s that for an opening line? See, tattooing is only legal in Korea if the tattoo artist is a licensed doctor, as they’re the only ones allowed to legally handle needles of any kind. Now, there are PLENTY […]

But I’ve gotten my teeth all fixed here, I’ve taken care of my skin in amazing ways, and I’ve now gone to the chiropractor! Just outside Itaewon station is the Create Wellness Center, a charming lovely […]

Mogo: A Vegetarian Meal Kit Service in Seoul!

Mogo: A Vegetarian Meal Service in Seoul - The Nerdventurists - www.nerdventurists.com

I haven’t griped too much about the difficulties of being a veggie in South Korea, because I feel like it’d be kind of obnoxious of me to do so. Korea’s diet is heavily meat based. It’s in their cultural makeup here as well as a huge part of their social world. Of course it’s going […]

Musical Theater in Korea: Dorian Gray (Starring Kim Junsu and Park Eun Tae)

Musical Theater in Korea - Dorian Gray: A New Musical - The Nerdventurists - www.nerdventurists.com

Living in a foreign country has its host of difficulties, especially when you don’t know the language. However, I truly believe that music is international and you don’t necessarily need to comprehend every individual word to understand the feeling or meaning behind a song. That’s why I wasn’t too worried when I traveled out to […]

Weird and Wacky Museums of South Korea

Weird & Wackiest Museums in South Korea - The Nerdventurists - www.nerdventurists.com

I’ve never seen so many museums in a single country than I have in South Korea. It’s staggering actually. There’s everything from museums on folklore to Leonardo da Vinci, Hello Kitty, and even African art. Some of these museums get a little… different. How about one dedicated to toilet culture around the world? Or even erotica? […]

Moist Lover Rubber Mask Review

Moist Lover rubber mask review - The Nerdventurists - www.nerdventurists.com

Sometimes you see something and have to buy it. I’m a big fan of the skincare here in Korea. It’s well priced, has great effects, and there’s about 5,000 different things to try. One of those things I didn’t anticipate trying was something called Moist Lover. It’s one of Dr. Jart’s new rubber masks and […]

How I Saved $3k By Going To The Dentist In South Korea

How I saved $3k going to the dentist in South Korea - A+ Dental Apgujeong - The Nerdventurists - www.thenerdventurists.com

I have saved over $3,000 in Korea. No, it’s not from penny pinching and transferring money home (although I do that too), no, it’s because I went to the dentist. Yup. The dentist. Dental care in South Korea is cheap. It’s not insanely cheap, no, but it’s much cheaper than back home in the United […]

Make Your Own Soap At Innisfree Jeju House

Make your own soap at Innisfree Jeju House - The Nerdventurists - www.nerdventurists.com

Vacations are definitely earned in Korea and I just spent the most wonderful five days on Jeju Island, South Korea’s own little Hawaii. Volcanic beaches, white sand, clear water, rolling mountains, and tons of tangerines and green tea. It was pretty much paradise and rest assured, I’ll be writing a lot about it. I mean… […]

Learning Korean With Talk To Me In Korean: Hangeul

2016-06-17 21.08.52

안녕하세요! It’s coming up on two months in Korea. It feels like two years and at the same time only two weeks. Moving to a new country, especially one that speaks a different language, is a stressful time. Even visiting a country where you can’t read or write the language can be a nightmare. That’s […]
