Suwon is home to Samsung’s headquarters. Although it is a 40 – 60 minute taxi ride from Seoul, attorneys often elect to commute to maintain the luxury of staying in Seoul.

Depositions are sometimes taken in the coastal cities, such as Pohang. This is not an ideal location as it requires additional travel, but it is possible to fly into the Pohang Airport rather than traveling via public transportation or car.
Planet Depos Travel Tip: If you plan to take depositions in Pohang, be sure you bring your bathing suit and take in one of the games of the Pohang Steelers, a South Korean professional football club located in the city.
