Ah it was very nice weather today in Korea. E and I met up with our friend Ahreum she works with us at Poly. She brought along her younger brother and cousin who are in high school studying English. E was nervous about what we would talk about. But after 3 hours of sitting at the cafe we really hit a variety of topics. Although sometimes it took three dictionaries and a iPhone app to communicate; I’d say it was a success. We talked about Korean drama’s and music, Jason Mraz, pod-casts, phone service, parts of speech, love lives, accents, Harry Potter…the list goes on.
But my favorite part is that I might be someone’s Noona! (Noona is what boys call their older sister ^.^)
I’m finally getting some answers with how the phone plans work in Korea. I found out that the most popular provider is SK, even Ahreum says its the best. Although she has her phone with KT…o_O
I think I’m going to go with KT anyway because they have a blog in English dedicated to expats who want to get a phone in Korea. There is a Smart Sponsor plan so I can probably get the iPhone 4. Their pricing is similar to other providers from what I’ve read online at least. So when me I finally get my ID card I will let you know how that worked out. Ahreum said she would come with me help me get a discount. Oh Alien Registration Card where are you, I am waiting for you.
