Preparing to come to Korea shouldn’t be a big stress especially in regards to your health. You don’t have to worry about any tropical illness with a name not even the doctor can pronounce. They don’t exist here. You’re not going to face a grizzly animal that could kill in one fair bite. I’ve heard there are tigers in the DMZ region, but you can’t go there anyway. If you gash your leg open, break your arm, or somehow manage to become riddled with sickness, there are well equipped hospitals full of expertly trained doctor who can speak English to take care of your every health need.

Health Care in Korea
Lindsey lived and worked in Seoul, South Korea for over 5 years. While there, she dabbled in different areas of work and explored the culture. She spent time teaching elementary students, business English to adults and high school students about college preparation. She also studied Korean, wrote blogs and tasted as many foods as she possibly could including fermented skate fish. Over the years, Lindsey developed a love for Korea and the culture. She is keen to share her knowledge of Korea with others and she will always consider Korea a second home.
