Korean Haunting


I came to South Korea to be with my husband whom is in the Army. I have been here for 5 months. I have been living in my apartment for over four months. About two and a half months ago I started getting the icy felling like I was being watched. This went on with no happenings until last night. My husband is training in the field. I am all alone in the house, just like any other night I got changed, went into bed and called my husband. I got to sleep around 12:30am.

I slept for about two hours when I started having a dream that I have had before. But instead of what normally happened in the dream, an unknown force was on my back with two handfulls of my hair, holding me down. I woke up to find that my head where, in my dream, this force had my hair. I blew it off thinking it was my imagination. I fell back asleep a short time later. The dream resumed where it had left off. This happened one more time before I decided to just stay awake. It was about 5:00 in the morning, I am not exactly sure. I heard a Korean man's voice talking, it was very deep, I could not make out any words that I know. It sounded as if he were hissing the words. By this time I was already terrified. I heard knocking, and my chairs being scooted around. This went on for about an hour. Then it started scratchng my walls. It started soft and short at first, I ignored it until it got harder and louder increasing a lot everytime.

Finally I could not take it any more it felt like my heart was going to burst, it was beating so hard. I got up and turned on all the lights in the house. It stopped. I got dressed and looked around to find all my chairs moved, little things moved, and then I saw the scratch marks on the wall. I was about 6:30 in the morning when I left. I am looking for another apartment. There is no way that I am going to stay there and let it keep getting worse and more violent.

the same thing happened to my aunt in Korea too. Maybe yo had the same apartment or something. All I know is that my aunt would wake up in the middle of the night and see that her furniture moved.

Brandy, Like I've asked others, where were you staying at. I have been in Korea and mostly worked the night shift since 1990. I was a Dog Handler and we had numerous experiences here in Korea. I have been all over the ROK and would like to get a map together annotating all of the stories and scary places. I have years of investigating the paranormal and would love to check out your old home. I do speak Korean and I am from the old haunted Wisconsin.

maybe you can just stay calm or call someone like your friends and talk to them for a long time until you feel much more better OR maybe you can invite your friends over and tell them to stay with you or sleep over for a couple of days 😁

Brandy, are you still there? If so maybe you should learn to say 'This is my home now, please leave my home' or something to that effect, in Korean. Maybe he'll get the hint 😉

Get out of the house asap Brandy. While our minds can play tricks, not of all of it is imagination.
Before any physical violence, find another place.
