When I moved to Korea there was so much to figure out -- getting cellphones, opening a bank account, paying my electric bill, buying furniture, applying for a driver's license...the list goes on and on. When you're in an unfamiliar place and you don't speak the language all of these small tasks can become mind-boggling and frustrating.
I was lucky though, because I had help from my amazingly efficient sister-in-law, Kimberly, who just happens to run her own business called "Kulture Concierge." I can't say enough about how helpful this has been to me and my husband - it's literally made our life in Korea more enjoyable, because it reduced stress and frustration. So, for a few bucks, maintain your sanity!
What can Kulture Concierge do? Essentially, this company can help expats living in Korea with just about anything. Here's a brief introduction to the company from its website:
