Where to go out alone?

by Claude2255

Hallo! Which place is a good location to go out and meet people in Hongdae? I am alone and don't have friends in Seoul so far. But in most places people go in groups and I feel a little strange going around alone.

Re: Where to go out alone?

by LadyOdyne

Hongdae is clubbing and students. If you're an outgoing kinda person then by all means go to a club (I recommend Club FF) on your own and meet people that's not all that weird in most people have got drunk and lost their friends anyway.

If that is not for you I suggest trying online. Korean friend finder is good for dating (formal and informal) and making friends. - You can google this to find the website.
Adventure Korea is great for outdoorsy things like rafting and holidays to Jeju. They have a web site here -
There are many facebook groups...for classes (pottery, kim bap making etc)...if you like learning and meeting new people in relaxed most people who end up at these things don't know anyone else, anyway.
There's also some English theatre in Itaewon, and you can usually strike up a conversation that way! Again, trying searching Facebook for events or here -

Good Luck!

Travel Tips for Seoul

Visit Insadong, streets filled...

by Lunagirl

Visit Insadong, streets filled with antique and art stores, galleries, and restaurants inside some of the oldest buildings on the city. The food! Cheap and wonderful Korean reataurants line the streets; Street food to warm you during the harsh winters; sitting on a heated floor with my shoes off and eating a 'Korean pizza' with my dear friend Kim, Me; the soothing effects of atomic-hot kimchee chige or sam gae tang during the headcold season. Tokk manduguk for New Years Day! More panchan (side dishes) than there is room on the table! I could go on and on . . .

Little Stores Everywhere

by jburron

I couldn't understand why my Korean friends would ask where the store was when we were hiking in the woods or at a park or somewhere. Once I got here I understood. Koreans are creatures of comfort (well, so am I) and convenience stores are all over the place.

Within one block of my apartment there are 6 little stores (some right beside each other!) all selling pretty similar products. As well, if you take a stroll down the Han River you'll see many shops like the one pictured on the left. In true Korean/extreme fashion, they are every 50 feet in some areas and non-existant in others. I could never understand how they all stayed afloat financially until I noticed on a hot day that the parks were so packed that you could hardly walk (well, not that packed, but you get the picture).

At these stores there are the usual Korean and some Western snacks and drinks as well as beer, Korean alcohol, toys, kites, ramen noodles and many other goodies (few of which have much nutritive value which makes me wonder why Koreans are so thin).

Korean Barbecue

by crazyguitar

If you are invited to a Korean barbacue never say no. It´s my favourite Korean food. It´s amazing the number of plattes they put on the table. You grill the meat on the table. Usually there are two types: pork or beef.
How to eat it? Take a leaf with your left hand, put some meat inside, garlic and the red spicy sauce, envelop and eat it (one bite).
Kimchi is always present in a Korean table, it´s a very spicy cabbage. Koreans use to drink Soju, arghhhh! The first day is not a problem to drink this kind of liquor but after trying it deeply one time you´ll hate it!
Sometimes after having a dinner you are
taken to a karaoke by the locals.


by machomikemd

Korean Food, Bulgogi is made from thin slices of sirloin or other prime cut of beef (usually imported since local korean beef is very expensive!). The meat is marinated with a mixture of soy sauce, sugar and other ingredients such as scallions and mushrooms, especially white button and shiitake and rice glass noodles are added and is cooked into an lpg stove! it is Deelicious!

it costs 18,000 won an order but it rises to 55,000 won if using local korean beef!
