Volunteering experience in Busan South Korea

I spent about two years in Japan, but before going back to my home country I wanted to experience yet another culture, so I decided to go to Busan South Korea. I’m interested in Korean culture, like dramas, music (for example Hyukoh) and especially food.


. The food here is so cheap and delicious! If you like spicy food I strongly recommend Korean food. My personal favorite is Bibimbap As a lifelong language learner I’m also interested in the Korean language, even though I can’t speak it yet… (TT) finally, i met so many Korean locals here

i had life time experience here in Busan ~

i fully thank As Home Cafe for giving me an opportunity to be part of this lovely family

Internship in Busan South Korea at AS HOME CAFE Busan South Korea




what brought me to Korea? definitely it is due to the popular Korean TV drama and the idol groups. it is a country which is not far away from China. we have a lot in common. and the great sightseeing here. that's the reason why i am here now, meeting people from different nations and enjoying everything here for the whole month.





After I have been here, I hang out with my buddies almost everyday. What impressed me the most are the food and people in Busan. The traditional Korean food is amazing because of the spicy flavor and the sweat taste. I tried many of them which shown on the TV drama I watched before such as Kimchi, Kimbab. Korean people are crazy about coffee culture, that's what I like, spending a whole afternoon in cafe, doing some reading and talking to friends. 👯‍♂️While the Korean are so nice and friendly especially for those elderly, every time when people know I come from other nation, they would …

Nowadays, many Taiwanese people will go to Korea for sightseeing. That the reason why I want to visit this amazing place. AS HOME CAFE & HOSTEL However, instead of coming here for wondering for several days, I chose to stay in the language cafe as an working exchanger. That enables me to learn and know more about Korean culture. The food here is wonderful. What’s more, you are going to hear a lot of Korean pop music on the street. That makes me begin to listen them from now on. My adventure in Korean will last forever and Busan will be my third home.

Korean Food
You’re interested in Korean culture and want to visit the country but don’t really know what to expect concerning the food ? Here is a small post presenting Korean food’s main aspects!
Korean Cuisine is different from neighboring countries such as Japan and China. It uses a lot of chili, sesame, garlic, as well as a wide variety of seafood and wild vegetables etc. Each areas has its own food culture and dishes of their own. Globally, northern regions cooking is less spicy than the southern regions one. All side dishes and accompaniments are shared on the table, people have their individual bowl of rice. Korean people do eat outside a lot, you’ll have the possibility to taste various Korean dishes in restaurant at reasonable prices, street food and coffee shops are also widespread here!


Main ingredients
starchy: rice, sweet potato seasonings: chili, coriander, salt, sugar proteins: meat (bee…

My thought abut Korea volunteering in Busan South Korea at the ASHOME LANGUAGE CAFE








K-drama and Kpop are really popular in Taiwan, almost everyone in Taiwan knows some basic phrases such as 안녕하세요(Hello). I have never been to Korea before, and I was curious why everyone likes Korea so much. During my stay, I have also found something I like about Korea: 1. FOOD! Korean food is just wonderful, and there are so many kinds. From street food such as 떡볶이(Tteok-bokki, stir-fried rice cake), 김밥(Gimbap, seaweed rice roll), to 순두부찌개(Sundubu-jjigae, soft tofu stew)… I never run out of food options in Korea!



2. People – people in Korea are generally very friendly and polite. When I jog in the morning, there’s always a lot of아줌마(ajumma, aunt/ middle-aged woman) comfortably sitting on 평상 (pyeong sang, Korean wooden bench) while chattering, and they smile and greet you with안녕하세요or a friendly nod. 3. Landscapes – Busan as the second largest city in Korea, it offers beautiful urban landscape when you …

Just arrived to Busan two days ago, so far so great! I wanted to spend some time in South Korea to get to know a bit of the language, the culture and Korean people, but I don't like spending too much time in big cities, so I chose Busan and found AsHome ^^ the place is wonderful so far, a bit away from the clutter and well connected with subway and buses, comfortable beds, good wifi, facilities and kitchen, plus you get to know people from all over!

Hej, allihopa! Vi har precis öppnat ett nytt språk café i Busan, Sydkorea och nu letar vi efter nya trevliga medarbetare!

Är du intresserad av matlagning? Kanske gillar du att diskutera film och böcker? Eller har du någon annan hobby eller talang som du vill dela med dig av? I så fall är Ashome något för dig! Vi behöver volontärer som är vänliga, villiga att lära ut och umgås med våra koreanska studenter.

På Ashome får du möjlighet att träffa många koreanska vänner och lära dig om Korea och dess kultur. I utbyte kommer du att hjälpa våra studenter att träna och förbättra sina engelska kunskaper genom avslappnad konversation.

Ett plus för våra volontärer är att caféet endast är öppet på vardagar så det finns gott om tid för utflykter med vänner, eller utforska Busan på egen hand!

Sommaren är här! Kom och njut av vädret och träffa nya intressanta människor. Det finns massa att se och upptäcka i Busan, särskilt Koreas mest berömda s…
