Seoul Food is my collection of Seoul’s best food and activities. Life is much too short to waste on bad food, getting lost, or mediocre activities. Before I go out to eat I do my research on one of the many great Korean blog sites. Similarly, I hope Seoul Food will be a great resource before you hit the town.
I spent 24 years of my life in San Diego and when I came to Korea, I was utterly lost. Thank God I had some family and friends here, but even with the help, getting around was tough. This site joins the ranks of some other great expat sites. The only difference is that I try my best to cut the fat. Here I share only my goldmines – in HD photos. If I love it, I post it. Hopefully you’ll love it too, and if there’s something I’m missing please feel free to let me know, or better yet, write an article and submit it. I’ll be happy to post it.
Dustin Cole is half-Korean and half-Anglo. And no, he’s not Daniel Henney. Rather than being in front of a camera, Dustin is good at being behind it, which isn’t to say he’s sore on the eyes. Dustin also plays guitar, enjoys rock and hip hop music, dislikes kpop, and loves playing with his sweet Maltese, Allie. Dustin has turned his love of photography into an art form, documenting portraits and streets around the world. After finishing a B.A. in Sociology at UCSD, Dustin booked a one-way ticket to South Korea and has never looked back. He spends his time teaching English part time, re-re-re designing this blog, and will start an MBA at Korea University in Fall 2011. He now enjoys eating way too much, mostly in the company of his girlfriend (sorry ladies), and writing about it. In this blog. (written by Hana
Hana Cho is fully Korean, and technically -American. She hails from the sunny Southern California, and grew up in the franchise-toting OC. She moved to San Diego for college and discovered what food was supposed to really taste like in independently owned restaurants that didn’t start with D and end in enny’s. After completing a B.A. in Literature/Writing at UCSD, losing some hefty inches off her waistline, Hana turned her (new) love for (health) food into a dream: Culinary Institute of America. Hana enjoys electronic music, painting, and dating doctors. For the time being, she is teaching English in Korea, still eating at different restaurants, and documenting all of her experiences here. Also, she is single. So if you feel like taking her out to a nice restaurant, she’s down.
