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.

Stop and Stare
It’s shoe wonderland. The windowless store combined with shoes just overlowing on the sides is so inviting. Outside one of the many shops in PNU. July 2012.

Browsing Korean shoes 
  Whenever I need to get somewhere in Seomyeon, I like to take the underground mall route and window shop. In Busan, South Korea, May 2012.

Shoes of Korea 
 Spring is here, so while that’s when shoe stores will start displaying more flats, sandals, and heels, it really doesn’t matter since Korean girls tend to wear in the year-round, sunshine or rain, hot or freezing.

My Mommy always labeled my things in case I lost them…
and I often did, especially lunch boxes. I always put in an extra snack and would take it out at a random time of the day to eat it. Glad to see that one of my most entertaining students (because he is so adorable yet very disruptive) is just like I was. Most Korean students and teachers wear indoor shoes when they go into school and many are styled like those in the picture above. This little 1st grader apparently took his shoes off during my class and left without them. He always leaves the class with the same amount of energy as he came in (though not always geared to learning English) so it’s no wonder walking around the building with shoes on is the last thing on his mind.
