Fare Magazine Issue 4 (Seoul) is out now. In Fare’s fourth issue we journey to Seoul, where a mid-century miracle swept this small historic city into a twenty-first century megalopolis.
Seoul is a city rooted in ancient memory, faith, and tradition. Thoughtful consideration flavours social relationships and every interaction from the corner shop to the boardroom. Glimmering all-night shopping districts—clustered with street food carts and cafes—offer a surreal shopping experience for the city’s most nocturnal. Meanwhile, in industrial back-alleys, improvised eateries grill regional specialties, and noodle houses serve up Northern-rooted classics so beloved, that they facilitate peaceful political dialogue. Heavily inspired by Western ideals, Seoul is an easy, inviting gateway into Korean culture, and an ultra-modern city ready to surpass expectations.
Fare is a new magazine exploring the heart of a city through its food, history, and community. Fare magazine is published bi-annually. Fare introduces its readers to a single city and lets its locals do the talking: taking you down backstreets and through forgotten histories, exploring neighborhoods and local institutions, and doing more than just taste the food on offer. The result is a portrait of city life and culture more thoughtful and nuanced than the dreamy conjurings that typify touristic material. Fare magazine is not a conventional travel guide; it is designed to excite and inspire, but also to educate, and each issue begins with a crash course in the city’s phenomena of place, and ends with a full glossary of local terms and histories referenced within.
