Movie Listings In English (Nationwide)




Yes, I've navigated the Korean CGV site trying to figure out what shows were playing and their times. Not the easiest task until I came across this movie listings site. There was one about 5 years ago, but vanished. Good to see someone else got on the job^^

Here's a link on the new Daejeon Access site, I'm slowly remodeling.

Dr. Yoon in Noeun-dong


Dr. Marshall Yun (Yoon) comes highly recommended by Daejeon Access and other long standing members of the expatriate community in Daejeon.

Dr.Yun was born in Korea. He was raised for half of his life in Indiana, in the United States.
He is fluent in both English and Korean.

 


His bedside manner is one of professionalism gently mixed with a genuine sense of warmth and understanding. It is what you should expect from a top quality family doctor.







Have any questions? Feel free to ask him about the medicine or treatment he's prescribing you.
He will elaborate on any question you may have.

( Directions in the image above or give his office a call)

********Call first, his day off may have changed^^ (This is an old card)

Foreign Food Mart!



It has taken me a bit to get down to the new "Foreign Foot Mart" near Daejeon station. After eating an interesting meal at a new local Mongolian restaurant with a friend in Eunheung dong; Earl and I proceeded to search out this new foreigner mart. As we approached, I realized this was only a few store fronts before the "World Food Store" - another western import retailer.



Deodorant and smelly sprays in a small variety of fragrances.



I was pleasantly surprised to find goat meat. Never tried it, but I may in the future^^.

 


It is located just a few store fronts before "World Food" (on your left coming from Old Downtown) towards Daejeon train station.

Macro Animal Clinic


I was walking around E-Mart Traders last week and came across a 24 hour animal clinic.
I haven't been there since I don't own a pet. I figured this might come in handy if you have a pet and it has an issue at 2 am and you don't know what to do^^
There's a map at the bottom of the page.

  • That's right, we're doing it again! It's time for the FOURTH ANNUAL ANGELS RIDE FOR CHARITY!!!!!

    So we got a big one planned for everyone, with all your favorites: LIVE MUSIC - AWESOME FOOD - HOT PRIZES and of course the BIG RIDE... all for a good cause. Come enjoy a perfect Saturday outdoors with family and friends.

    Here's the Seo Daejeon Stage! It's Beautiful!

    When you arrive, sign up for the first annual Charity Football Tournament (American football).

    Registration starts at 2, games start at 3. Any and all are welcome to participate (though an understanding of the game would be beneficial). You'll need a team of 5, a clever team name, and ₩5000 per person (I think that's roughly ₩25000 per team). All the money raised will go to local children's centers which the Angels Ride for Charity event supports. Winners of the bracket style tourney will get bragging rights for the Greater Daejeon area and some super-secret, totally radical prize.

    Basic rules: 2 hand touch, first team to 5 touchdowns wins, 4 downs with 1 first down marker at midfield, no kickoffs, teams start possession at the 10 yard line, and 10 apple rush. Everything else is based on standard NFL rules. The exception being: steroids and all other PEDs are allowed.

    Directions:

    By Subway: Seodaejeon Negeori Station (서대전네거리역) Exit 2

    By Taxi: Seo-dae-jeon Ne-geo-ri Yeok (서대전네거리역) (closest to Exit 2)

    By Bus: the 101, 103, 119, 201, 202, 311, 314, 315, 612, 613, 614, 618, 701


    Facebook Event Page Here

    YELLOW TAXI
    PINOY MART
    BILLY PILGRIM
    TACO K
    SANTAS
    SHISHA HOUSE


    Looking for artists who would be willing to part with some of their work for a charitable cause.
    As it is an outdoor event, please consider the size and dimensions of the work. The most saleable work will be something that can be easily carried.

    If are interested, please contact me via FB. Thanks.

    Glen Riley






    Please remember we do all this to raise money for local charities. Proceeds from food, games, and prize raffles will go into the pot; in addition, DONATIONS ARE MOST WELCOME!!! It'll be a blast as always, so come have a good time, and give a little back to the place that's given you so much!!! Hope to see you there!!!!!

Told A Story--Best Coffee in Korea, no hyperbole


Told A Story may just be the best purveyor of coffee in Korea. Yes, the best in the entire nation. The shop, located just a hop skip from Gungdong Nonghyup in Eoeundong features many of the world's current cup winners, freshly roasted, in ground or whole bean form.





The adjacent coffee shop offers the standard espresso coffees but you come here for the hand drip. There are coffee nuts out there who like to say "I've had some great coffee" but here at Told A Story it really seems like you are drinking another liquid.

Gunpyo checking his current roast.

The 2012 Cup winner is Kenya AA Nyala; if you haven't had it, you should go there for a cup. Friends of mine that live in Seoul have started buying it for their office. They love the fact that they get it one or two days after they order and it is roasted on the day they ordered it. I had some Honduran Jorge Mendoza. It comes from a farm owned by a guy named Jorge Mendoza. This bean was the cup wonner in Honduras and came in at a respectable #27.





Told A Story is located in Eoeundong. If you walk towards KAIST from the Gungdong Nonghyup, take the first right and it is on the second block on the left. Tell them Earl and Daejeon Access sent you.
