International depositions provide limitless opportunities for travel, often to exciting locales.  But will your destination have local U.S. -trained reporters and videographers to cover your depositions?  If your depositions are in South Korea, the answer to that question is yes!  You can take your deposition just as you would in the U.S., in a comfortable conference room, with realtime on your own laptop or a loaner from the reporter.  The videographer, while recording the proceedings in high definition, will step in to expeditiously resolve any technical issues which can sometimes arise.  Text and audio can be streamed to any participants who are unable to attend in person.

South Korea’s capital city of Seoul has several qualified interpreters with years of experience interpreting for depositions in all sorts of cases.  Partnering with a court reporting firm with a strong local presence ensures the best available interpreter is covering your depositions in South Korea.  A dedicated, professional interpreter providing accurate interpretation is vital to a smooth deposition, ensuring fewer interruptions, and a cleaner transcript.

In addition to saving money on travel expenses, partnering with local professionals for your depositions in South Korea can also provide an insider’s track on how to maximize your spare time to thoroughly enjoy your surroundings.  South Korea is a country with a rich history and culture, not to mention mouth-watering cuisine.  Be sure to ask the reporter, videographer, or interpreter for the best local restaurants, shops, and cultural centers.  They can also tell you the optimal times to visit these places.

The Statue of King Sejong the Great, with Hangeul projected on a water screen, is located in the Korean Main Plaza at Gwanghwamun Square.  Korea enjoyed more than 1,000 years of peace starting in the 7th century, under dynasties which lasted for centuries.  It was during this millennium of peace that Sejong the Great promulgated Hangeul, the Korean alphabet which enabled all Koreans to learn to read and write their language.  To this day, Hangeul is regarded as one of the world’s most systematic alphabets, and Korea celebrates Hangeul Day each October 9th.

While you are in Korea, you should treat your taste buds and try some local dishes.  Kimchi is a staple in the Korean diet, the most common variety consisting of napa cabbage that is preserved and lightly fermented in bright red chili flakes.  There is also kimchi stew, where the kimchi is boiled with chunks of fatty pork, with seasonings and additional ingredients until the stew bursts with flavor.  This is a popular everyday dish in Seoul.   If you are craving meat, pork bulgogi is a delectable indulgence.  This dish can be made of pork, chicken, or beef, cut into thin strips, then marinated in a sweet soy sauce with a generous share of garlic and sesame oil, and grilled.
