The name may sound odd, but it reflects a reality - at first, we're all just strangers.
Many come here hoping to bond with locals, yet cultural barriers and language differences often stand in the way.
Koreans typically form close-knit groups based on school or work connections, which can feel impenetrable to outsiders.
Furthermore, Seoul offers few spaces dedicated to making friendships.
We want to understand different cultures and widen our views, but language barriers can make it tough.
As a newer generation, we want to break away from traditional viewpoints and engage with the world more openly.
This is where "Fake Buddies" comes in.
to create a community where both locals and internationals can mingle, break down walls, and form connections.
We envision a space where 'fake' buddies become 'real' friends. In this community, we embrace difference, encourage language exchange,
and celebrate shared experiences.
