My sister, a doctor, got engaged to her boyfriend. He is also Nigerian, and apparently he flew her out to New York to propose! I got my security deposit back plus what they had overcharged me when I moved in– that’s $242.00 much needed dollars. I also went on a job interview this morning, and I’m excited about finally making the BIG decision to pursue my career in health law. And, more importantly, I’m that much closer to having a white winter in Cheongdamdong!
I decided to stay in Cheongdamdong, because it was the cheapest option. It was also one of the most convenient options, since it is close to Itaewon, Sinsadong, Apgujeong, and a few other places I would like to go, like Ellui, SM, and the Han River. Once I found out I could use the apartment, which has two beds, all by myself– and even have an extra bed for a friend to crash, I went All In and made my booking on Wimdu!
So, HERE is the Cheongdamdong Guest House, which can also be found on AirBnB. It’s SO lovely, and my host, Do Hyun, is SO nice. There was a problem, because the website was showing a $339.00 discount– one that appeared a few weeks AFTER I booked my room. I contacted him, and he immediately contacted Wimdu and even spoke with my mom. The discount was definitely a mistake, and everything was taken care of in a few days. What’s more, he was never annoyed or angry with me or my mom for asking him so many questions and sending him so many messages. He was just patient, kind, and understanding. So, I am really excited to meet him, too!
If YOU are looking for a place to stay while you are in Gangnam or Seoul, choose this guest house, too! The location alone is the best, because you are in the heart of Gangnam, right next to famous Kpop stars and Korean celebrities, delicious restaurants, cute cafes, and popular clubs! And, coming home to this cheap but cozy and clean apartment with everything you need will also be the best.
Is it December yet?
I can’t wait to see my best friend Jennie, J-, D.H., unni and her family, all of my Korean friends, AND all of my friends from Korean class who are living and working in Korea PLUS, I also can’t wait to go to my favorite restaurants and clubs, Namsan Tower, and even Busan! It’s going to be Two Weeks in cold paradise.
