Having grown up in Koreatown, I have been exposed to so much diversity. It is bustling with people, especially throughout mornings and afternoons. It's easy to get to and from various places in LA from Koreatown thanks to the readily available bus and train transportations (and recently even scooter and bike transportations). This is helpful for anyone, from students all the way to seniors. If necessary, the amount you pay for transport is modified to suit your needs as well. You never run out of anything to do since there are many hidden gems in Koreatown, not to mention the food is delicious (and healthy if you want it to be)! Koreatown is not the most affordable place to live, but it certainly offers so many resources and experiences.

Korea town is a very active and bustling city! However, its not the best place for a family. The homeless population is very prominent and there has been quite a problem in my building in terms of theft and loitering. A few blocks away there was a suspect at large for molesting vulnerable women. So that's the bad, but the good is that I saw a gradual attempt at cleaning up the city. Real estate is climbing. There's quite a bit of entertainment and a diverse helping of good food to be had. So come to Koreatown to visit, but maybe build your home elsewhere.
Koreatown is a bustling, diverse little nook in Los Angeles. Though it’s called “Korea” town there’s a lot of Hispanic influences throughout the city. There’s lots of great food to eat on every other corner such as Korean BBQ, authentic Mexican tacos, and donuts. The things I want to see changed are the pavements (a lot of them are cracked), garbage/litter situation, and I’d want to see more places renovated and cleaned up!
