    It has been three years after I moved to Seoul

    "It has been three years after I moved to Seoul."


    Is it possible to put 'after' instead of 'since'?

    Not unless you change your mind:

    'Three years after I had moved to Seoul I went home.'

    (But as has been said - No.)

    Re: It has been three years after I moved to Seoul

    Or It was three years after I (had) moved to Seoul​, but that does change the meaning.
