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.

Ep. 12 – Christopher Maslon on bodybuilding and self-determination
Christopher Maslon is a professor at Daejeon Health Sciences College and competitive bodybuilder. While not exactly a Settler of Seoul, Chris has lived in Korea for the better part of fifteen years and has experienced what he would call a complete transformation over that time. It was in Korea that he first starting lifting and taking fitness seriously, and now in his mid-40s Christopher is in the best shape of his life, achieving top placements at Korean bodybuilding shows, appearing in magazines and model shoots, and even a few Korean movies. So it’s a great conversation you’re about to hear, one that I think was worth the trip to Daejeon. Let’s call this episode Settlers of (Mostly) Seoul.
