I am moving to Seoul very shortly and the family follows soon after. The HR department at the company I am going to work for has suggested they find me an apartment in Pangyo instead of in central Seoul because of the size of the places. I can find very little online about Pangyo except that it is relatively new in comparison. Can anyone clue me in about the area? Are there any other westerners living there?
