Doing some more writing today. Apologies if I owe you a story and I swear I'm working on it.
My landlord rang this evening and asked if we had any Koreans living with us. I said no repeatedly because I assumed that he was implying we had either sub-contracted the apartment or had people living with us who weren't on the contract. Which probably *was* one of their concerns. But it turned out that two people by the name of Ii and Kou had gone to a locksmith, told them they had lost their key to our apartment and tried to get them to open it up! Luckily, said locksmith rang the landlord, who put a stop to it.
I'm a little worried, but as long as locksmiths are checking up on these things, it should be okay. I just hope they keep checking!
