Cool thread! Don't know how i missed it...
anyway, i live in daejeon, about 2 hours south of seoul. though its the 7th largest city (i think), it still feels somewhat small townish.
there are about 1,500,000 people here and its surrounded by mountains on 2 sides. 1 side is Gyeryong National Park.
one cool thing about daejeon is that its easy to get away to all other places in korea as we are nearly in the middle of the country.
there are a lot of foreigners here though not a lot of organization to get them together, other than the bar, of course. walmart, costco and carrefore can satisfy most western cravings but if you're looking for good beer or cheese, you might want to head to seoul.
the subway is almost done with parts of it already opened.
ive lived here my entire time in korea mostly because of the size and the fact that winters and summers are worse in other cities. i also have quick access to the mountains and rock climbing.
thats daejeon in a nut shell...
