Welcome Two-Panther, I was there 1987-1991.
Welcome. You must have been in 2ID right before they all reflagged (1/17 to 5/20, 1/23 to 1/5 etc). I can still smell the kimchi and the smell of the rice paddies in the spring during the melt.
Toko-Ri was better than Tongduchon, IMHO. But it was a longer bus ride :)

Nothing like the smell of Korea in the Summer. Fortunately I was at Bonifas so most of it was South of me.
