Why South Korea?

A small population of digital nomads and adventurous retirees have chosen South Korea for its top-notch healthcare and infrastructure, lively festivals and things to see and do, and kind people. There are endless opportunities to teach conversational English. Seoul is one of the world’s safest big cities, although the traffic is ???? and the pollution is a major con. Expats report culture shock over the collectivist nature of the people in this full democracy, especially compared to rugged American individualism, but some find they prefer it. The cost of living is no bargain, but you can live modestly enough, especially outside the city, and enjoy your fill of delicious Korean food at reasonable prices.
