Everyone and their moms have Facebook these days. And everyone in Korea is too! If you’re not on it, then get on it. That’s because you’ll want to click like on these Korea-centric Facebook pages.
(Note: We tried to find Facebook Pages that had content that couldn’t be found on websites/youtube, etc. For Facebook ONLY content :))
If you haven’t followed us already, do it. The Seoulistic Facebook Page is our venue for fun! There we post lots of fun and interesting things about Korea. We’ve posted before about super cool but controversial buildings, one of the most delicious food finds in Seoul, and cultural tidbits you might not have known about. On this website we give you travel and cultural tips. Our Facebook page is for everything else 🙂

Our good friends at Talk to Me in Korean are the gurus of Korean language education. Their bread and butter is their oh-so-helpful podcasts. But if you’re not a fan of audio lessons, you can always head over to their facebook page. There they have fun translation challenges. If your Korean’s not good enough for translations just yet, you can look at a picture and learn a word or two right?
These two magazines are two of the biggest expat magazines in Korea. These Korea lifestyle and event magazines can be found in expat hubs all around Korea. Subscribe to some of the best subway/bathroom reading material you can find on Korea. But if you’re not in Korea, you can always follow their Facebook pages! There they post select articles, have contests for free tickets, and let you know what’s going on during the weekends!
This group we highlighted in our post: “How to Make Friends in Korea.” And it’s a group that’s dedicated to throwing parties and helping friends make friends (Korean friends at that!). They of course have a website, but many of their events and plans are advertised and even scheduled through Facebook. If you want some Korean friends while you’re here, definitely follow this Facebook page to make sure you know when to go to all the events.
We love Maangchi, and you should too. We highlighted her in our must watch YouTubers post (see link below) because she shares some bomb Korean food recipes. If you’re not a cook, follow her page just to look at awesome pictures of Korean food that’ll make you hungry. But more than just recipes and pictures of Korean food, just follow her because she shows her quirky, fun and cute personality through Facebook 🙂
Technology + Design + Korea = unbeatable. Korea’s one of the most high tech cities in the world, and these guys tell you what the future is going to be like. Korea’s also a world leading design hub, and they’ll let you know about that too. Of course you could just go to their website, but you’ll be missing out on all the other great content they share on their Facebook page. With 400,000 thousand strong, they must be doing something right 🙂
(Note: Advanced Technology and Design Korea is supported by the Korean government, but it’s so cool it gets its own slot here :))
The Korean government puts a lot of money into tourism, and of course a lot of the effort goes to Facebook. Here you can have chances to win all expense paid trips through their contests, find out about useful tourism information, and even find out about job opportunities. Facebook pages are one of the main lines of communication for these government organizations. So follow, and get your Korea on!
