what will your place look like? think smallish. lots of people post photos of their place, so do a google image search for officetel, or korea apartment.
here are pictures of an officetel bedroom and bathroom. officetels are one big room and a bathroom. so, first two shots are of the same room, and then the bathroom... yeah... more info here. and watch this:

I really like your blog. Recently I've been looking all over the internet for information about what it's like being black and a woman in Korea, and finding little of either. So thank you for your blog and all it's great links.

I found your blog by googling cute korean boy's. XD

I too will be a Black ESL teacher - if all goes according to plan. Anyways, I saw that you work for CDI - I'm thinking about working for them too. In your opinion, if I were to stay 6 months, is it worth the hourly pay? I know I'd have to pay my own rent and airfare and such. What do you think? I was thinking about a year at first, but now I'm not sure, I have other things in NY I feel I may have to be here for.

Thanks for any input!

Thanks for your blog. I've been reading eslcafe and it sucks. I get tired of the racism and complaining. Sound like you enjoy it over there. Is it okay if I ask questions occasionally? I graduate May 09. Random fact, yes, I know. Thanks for the awesome blog.

Thank you for all the helpful links and tips. I will be moving down in August and it is nice to learn about what it is like to be black and a female in South Korea.
