If you recently moved to South Korea, then we advise you to join in all of these facebook groups for foreigners, which are pretty useful due to the fact that you can seek for advice and make friends.
Moving to another country can sometimes be stressful. Because it means that you need to follow new rules, and start from zero. Due to this, many doubts can arise. Which you might not know where to get them clarified.
If this was your case, then do not worry. Your doubts can be resolved in some of these groups we are about to introduce you.
Despite South Korea having their own helplines for foreigners, it is sometimes more comfortable to just be able to ask your doubts through comments rather than talking by phone.
Besides, it is quite annoying to have to wait for your turn when you just want to clarify your doubt on something simple. And there, you cannot ask about matters of daily life, of course. Such as where to buy groceries, for example.
With this in mind, you want might to try joining some of these useful facebook groups for foreigners to seek for help.

Every Expat in Korea
This group is for all foreigners living in South Korea. Here, you can seek for advice, recommendations and even ask for opinions. And why not? Get some fun with some of their memes.
What I like the most, is that it is pretty active. Because of this, it became my main source for news. Since a lot of people translate news articles and post them.
Really Really Free Things in Korea
This is the perfect group for anyone who is in a budget or recently moved here. Because here, people give away the stuff they do not need anymore, FOR FREE.
However, you need to always be prepared to comment. The reason is that you have to be the first one to claim the product if you want to receive it. If not, you will be put in a waiting list.
The people who are giving away products are able to post any day. On the contrary, people who want to ask for things can only post on friday.
You will be surprised by all the things that are given each day. I have even seen people gifting their furniture and electronics.
