So to cut the story short, they came over last weekend to check up on the apartment, but we were confident that they would be impressed. It's a 2yr old apartment - us being the first tenants. We kept it very clean and they were pretty happy.
It was a nerve racking day. I've never had to do this 2 yr contract renewal for apartments and it was a serious matter.
Thankfully, my husband's good friend came over to help us. We call him our "lawyer" (he's not a lawyer) friend. He wanted to make sure we got what we wanted - an increase of 50,000won and no more for 2 yr renewal on the apartment.
We all sat down to negotiate the deal on the apartment and price - it was very intense. I can speak enough Korean - but not enough to make negotiations.
We can't still believe our friend came to help us that day.
We can't thank him enough~~ because he made his moves and talks and we got what we wanted! A 50,000won increase in rent each month for 2 year renewal!
We still can't believe we got what we wanted! Moving is painful - and being the only tenant in our apartment is hard to give up... we are so very very thankful for our friend.... We would never be able to make such a deal without him!
And to actually think that, our apartment runs for 200,000won more in rent (than what we pay now) - as priced by the realtors. I still can't believe he got us to just 50,000won.. We joked that he should make it a part time side job to make deals happen ;P
So to congratulate the successful deal - we ordered jajangmyun that day. I heard it's a common meal to eat on moving days (too tired to cook?).

We got a small "tang-soo-yook", "gan jajang", and "gochu japchae bap". All delivered in less than 30 minutes with a free fried mandoo!
