hi ;-)You know what? I don't know where black folks hang out because when it comes to black folks, I'm a bit of a weirdo if you know what I mean. It just means that sometimes I don't fit easily in African-American groups. I've always been that quirky outlier that hung with kids of all kinds. That followed me pretty much up to this day. The only place where I had a click of black friends like me was in college and law school where we were all the black kids who were smart enough, lucky enough and financially well off enough to go.However, your best chance is probably Itaewon. It's more African than black American though, but I've run into folks from the military there. That's the thing. Most blacks who are American are with the military and they already have their home comforts on base.Unfortunately, whites dominate the social scene in Seoul but I know there has to be SOMEWHERE where black folks hang out. If you find it, let me know because I'm at my wits end with these pasty irritating folks.

thus came these:
