how to do things in your korean apartment

My husband made this for me when I lived in Korea and it ended up being a very valuable resource as I learned the ins and outs of the various appliances around my officetel.  I came across it recently and thought I’d share it here because it’s too helpful to keep for myself, especially considering I no longer live in Korea 。◕‿ ◕。

They are, from top to bottom:

▽How to use your washing machine

▽ How to set your rice cooker to cook while you’re sleeping (I’m still startled to this day when the rice is cooking because the ENTIRE apartment smells like popcorn and it shakes and steams and it’s 4 AM)

▽ How to use the ondol heater (mine was broken all winter long so this didn’t really end up mattering to me)

▽ How to get into your home if the door lock is out of power (luckily I never had to use this).

  1. Ha! I remember my second day in Korea and I thought “yep, time to do a load to kill time” while waiting for Bobby to get back from uni. Three hours later and I was near tears thinking WTH am I doing here?!? Good old google translate. “pine soccer ball” & “furry dogs leg” weren’t far off what it was telling me :P It’s so sweet that he made you this list! Dare I say romantic?
