In America, it's ok to criticize Christians and Muslims.

One question or two. This kind of neighborhoods are considered slums (or so) in SK? Or are they just old and with an important lack of urbanism? Thus, are they cheap, are they unsafe?

Love Seoul and would like to spend some years there, and i'd like to know more about it, off the beaten path.

Thanks. The photos you quoted are from the area around Yongsan Garrison (US army base in Seoul.) This area is popular with migrant workers and has a fairly international flavour. It is cheap by Seoul standards, but relatively safe. I would disagree that it lacks urbanism. These areas are incredibly dense with 4-5 storey apartment buildings with no vehicular access (ie roads) and only narrow pedestrian pathways between buildings. I find these alleyways endlessly fascinating and they are quite common in the less developed, older parts of the city.

I will post some more back streets shots from around Jongno (traditional downtown) below.

I see it better now. It's just we are not so used to see non-glittering areas of this city in the Internet. Doesn't look bad.
