The number of non-Koreans living and working on Jeju Island passed the 20,000 mark in 2017. But for years there has been a vibrant — if loosely organized — expat community. One major event sponsored by Jeju Province and hosted by the local online newspaper HeadlineJeju is the 6th Annual Jeju Expats Festival.
If you’re in the Tapdong area of Jeju City (not far from Jeju International Airport), this Saturday evening (June 30, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. @ the Tapdong Seaside Concert Hall, Map: https://www.visitjeju.net/u/UD) you can catch all sorts of performances, games, activities and shop at a night market run by expats. Homemade jewelry, paintings, crafts, foodstuffs and more will be on sale there.
Having seen past years’ events, I highly recommend checking it out. There’s a remarkably talented group of people from all over the globe who are making their homes (some temporarily, some permanently) on our beloved island!
