DISCLAIMER AND THE LEGAL STUFF

If we rejected your article / post and then you see something similar appear later on our website, rest assured, we didn’t steal your idea, because that shouldn't happen. That shouldn't happen because no two authors should be writing about the same thing at the same time.  Unless it was done intentionally from two or more individuals that submitted their writings to us.  We won't take your idea and publish it under our author name, because that would discredit us.  There’s really no benefit to us to do that kind of shady stuff.  


SOME MORE LEGAL MUMBO JUMBO LEGALESE

​​If we accepted your article for publication on our site and social media platforms, you are agreeing to allow theseoulofkorea.com the full right to publish your article and that you are the author of that article.  Additionally, you agree that once your submitted article is published on theseoulofkorea.com and its social media platforms, theseoulofkorea.com becomes the sole owner of all copyright, publishing, and other rights related to the article’s content.  You will of course get credit where credit’s due when we publish the article / post, but our legal adviser says we have to have these rights in order to publish it in the first place, in order to avoid potential legal problems down the road.

If you still agree, then email your article / post to [email protected]


Thank You!  Saerang Haey Yo!
