Settlers of Seoul
About This Show
Over a million and a half non-Koreans call South Korea home. This number grows every year as the country continues to internationalize through travel, investment, finance, IT, culture, technology, and other sectors. At the center of it all lies Seoul, the largest metro area in mainland Asia. This podcast is a showcase of the diversity of the city and the surrounding area.

Robert Hamilton is a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at Seoul National University. Robert's research focuses on geographies of sexualities, transnational sexuality, queer theory, and male prostitution. He has lived in Korea for nearly twenty years.
