The Seoul of the South
Welcome to Seoul of the South
'남부의 서울'에 오신걸 환영합니다!
So, you're probably over Gangnam style by now. Have you tried some Korean BBQ or come across a K-pop music video online? Are you interested in learning more but not sure where to start?
Asking your Korean friends or co-workers may not get you anywhere, and the direct flight to Seoul from Atlanta takes over 14 hours. So what do you do now? You don't have to go far. Plan a visit to Gwinnett—the Seoul of the South—your very own local K-town.
More than 100,000 first and second-generation Koreans brought many aspects of Korean culture and daily life right here to Gwinnett. With this growing community, they brought Korean businesses, retail shops, churches, markets, and restaurants. It’s really like having a mini-Seoul right here in Georgia.
Nearly one-third of Georgia’s Korean residents have settled in Gwinnett County, primarily around Duluth, where most of the Korean shopping centers are located, and in neighboring cities such as Lawrenceville and Suwanee.
There's a lot to take in, but we're here to help. Attend one of our Seoul of the South Korean Food Tours, or take a look at our Guide to Korean Culture to get started.
