Seoulist is an online magazine and shop curated to feature the best of Seoul affairs, characters and curiosities. At Seoulist, we’re obsessed with culture and the wonderful melange that can only arise out of a beautiful, frustrating, and exciting city like Seoul. We take an expansive view of culture, and believe that anything can be interesting–even a little black pen. Our favorite pieces offer an unconventional take on something familiar, whether it’s the history of ssuk or subway secrets that every rider should know. Whatever we do, we strive to produce good writing, believing that how we say something is just as important as what we say.
