The Galbijim Wiki is a wiki run on MediaWiki software that is for and by expats in South Korea, begun November 23, 2005. It differs from Wikipedia in a number of ways:

  • Information is much more specific and related to daily life in the country (for example, List of movie theatres that do not show credits).
  • It assumes a basic knowledge of Korean language in some cases and many external links are all in Korean.
  • Naming conventions are slightly different regarding place names, generally coinciding with the way Koreans or expats living in the country will refer to a place; one example would be writing Gurye or Gurye-gun instead of Gurye County.
  • Users may create Korean language courses of their own, create pages on vocabulary, or language tips.
