After recently hearing of a Filipino Market within the boundaries of Seoul, I decided it was worth a visit. One of Korea's sizable minorities, one Korea Times article
claims there to be almost 46,000 Filipinos in Korea - often doing the jobs in the '3 D's' category (dirty, dangerous, or difficult). The market nearby the Hyehwa Catholic Church gives them to share information, give or get assistance, and purchase a taste of home. As a fellow foreigner in Korea, I found myself sharing in their community, albeit still as an outsider of sorts.
