Over a million and a half non-Koreans call South Korea home. This number grows every year as the country continues to internationalize through travel, investment, finance, IT, culture, technology, and other sectors. At the center of it all lies Seoul, among the largest metro areas in the world. This podcast is a showcase of the diversity of the city and the surrounding areas.
