I'm currently in my 2nd year of teaching English in Busan, South Korea. I also co-run an English website about salsa in Busan: Busan Salsafied

Check it out if you're planning to visit the city.

Sometimes Korea surprises me in the weirdest ways. Top of the Lotte Department building in Nampodong.

This Dog
Hope he’s got sunblock. If Koreans have a dog, it’ll most likely be one this size. Seen at a hiking trip with my teachers.

Dogs in Korea
This one’s even blushing. Probably because it’s wearing a tutu.

Jindo Dog

                  The Jindo Dog

You’ll mostly see a Jindo dog only in Korea since they are considered a “natural treasure” and are hard to export. Most are micro-chipped by 6 months to make sure they don’t leave the country.

Beggars Can’t be Choosers..
but this doggie chose me to give her treat after treat. I felt sorry for the ridiculous outfit they made her wear. Taken at a dog cafe in Seoul. January 2011.

Dog with Underbite
So ugly, he’s cute. My friend and I figured we’d give him extra treats since he probably doesn’t get as many on account of him not being able to pull off that innocent puppy look. But, now that I think about it, everyone else that visits probably thinks the same thing, so in reality he’s getting twice as many treats! Sly dog. Taken at a dog cafe in Hongdae, Seoul.
