Two recent questions from readers.
Firstly, one which risks eliciting a huge number of recommendations, from Ashey:
Hi, I had the Yuko system done in England 6 months ago and now I am living in Korea and I am looking for a similar hair straightening system in Seoul. If anyone could give me the name of a salon on Seoul that does it, that would be great.
Secondly, a tougher one. Does anyone know of a recruitment company in Korea (or indeed elsewhere) who specialises in helping foreigners find work in Korea? Particularly skilled foreigners (eg qualified accountants) with English as a first language who are also fluent in conversational Korean?
It might sound as if I’m looking for a job myself, but it’s not for me: I don’t speak the language (yet).
Also, it’s looking more likely that I will be able to have a quick weekend in Seoul in 10 days’ time (19/20/21 January). So if any of you can think of ways to entertain me (any good bands playing, good art exhibitions, good restaurants etc) please leave comments below or email me.
