Saturday night, a fire broke out in Seomyeon, only 3 blocks from where I work and a 10 minute walk from our apartment. A karaoke bar on the 3rd floor of a building caught on fire. 9 people died, 3 foreigners and 6 Koreans.
Adam and I didn’t even hear the sirens. We were watching a movie at home. This morning I had a message from my friend Nicole back home checking in to make sure everything was okay. I guess this blaze made national news.
