Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

IS THERE A Korean COMMUNITY IN Taiwan?

Hi im a taiwanese American and my girlfriend is Korean.

I read a lot about the relations that Taiwan has with Korea, but I was still wondering if there is a Korean community or Korea town that could possibly be found in Taiwan. Any information would be great. Thanks everyone.

Isn't there a large Korean community in Yonghe around Cardinal Tien hospital? I don't know if it's still the case, but this is what I was told when I used to live down in Zhonghe

I know a few Koreans in Tianmu. I'll ask them next time I see them.

Yeah, that should be right. Heading south out of Dingxi station exit 1, turn left on the first major street (Zhongxing St.). There are all sorts of Korean shops there, but I'm not sure if the owners are really Korean or not. I'd assume that at least some of them would be.

There's a Korean school (looks like a junior/senior high school, but not positive) on the street bordering the north side of Youth Park. I believe there may be some Taiwan-Korea connections through the Presbyterian church as well, so you might try asking at one here.
