International Wines and Spirits Expo 2016

When it rains it pours!

Jewelry Fair Korea 2016 is "RE-BORN" at COEX

It’s no secret that South Korea has an ever-growing taste for the finer things in life. Just pop into any department store, or take a stroll through one of Seoul’s shopping districts to witness first-hand the nation’s obsession with luxury.

Unsurprisingly, the country is also one of the world’s fastest-growing jewelry and watch markets, which is why the Korea International Jewelry and Watch Fair (aka Jewelry Fair Korea) has had much success since its establishment.

Coffee Expo Seoul 2016 to Serve Up a Fun and Tasty Caffeine Fix

There’s no doubt about it. Koreans love their coffee.

So much so that it’s impossible to walk a single block in this country without crossing a packed coffee shop franchise, posters of celebrities advertising overly sweet mix coffee, or a cleverly designed theme cafe.

As such, it’s no surprise that one of the country’s biggest food-related exhibitions is dedicated to the caffeinated beverage.

Letter from Korea, January 2012

January 10, 2012

Dear Ireland,

For starters, Happy New Year.

Another year of my life in Korea has passed. This March will mark the seven year anniversary of my first arrival in Korea. It seems like that long. That’s neither good nor bad; it’s just how I feel. If I look back on 2011 I can say that it has been a good year. As well as passing some milestones, it has been productive, it has been exciting, it has been tragic, and it has definitely strengthened my resolve to see things through in the future. But, I don’t really want to go on about how 2011 was when 2012 is here and happening now.
