Chris and Sunjun were amazing hosts - what lovely people and a lovely couple. They were so friendly and welcoming I was truly impressed. Not only did they make me feel welcome, they also included me at their table when they ate. Talk about hospitality. They both are great conversationalists. If I lived in Seoul, I'd want to include them in my friend network for sure - that's how much I appreciated their hospitality. On the last day, I tried to get money out from the ATM's in Itaewon, but because I hadn't instructed my bank that I was travelling, I got blocked. So since I was low on cash, Chris even offered to drive me to the U.S. Military base where there was an atm that he said would most likely work. I accepted the offer, and he went out of his way to drive me there.
Anyhow - if you are new to Seoul, I would recommend staying with them - they will give you good tips of where to stay, and give u a good introduction. Unfortunately when I was there, I was working on a programming deadline - so I had to put my ear-phones on most of the time and be a bit anti-social cuz I had to finish my work. That was unfortunate because I would have rather visited with them ofcourse. Luckily, I finished my deadline. By the way, their shower is a really good one. I've been to many places across asia, with lower water pressure. But their shower was very refreshing to use after escaping the deadly heat of a Seoul afternoon. Also, their place is in a good location. You can simply walk down the hill (4 minutes) and another 4 minutes walking to Noksapyeong station - which is very central Seoul. Or, if you want to do touristy shopping, just go up one station (or catch a cab) to Itaewan, and you will be able to get many presents for friends back home.
Anyhow, good luck on your trip - its a great value for the money - and great people to meet. Good luck Chris and Sunjun!
