Achasan is a chundery, exposed granite goddess, eager to thrash you if you aren't wary.
No roads up, hence no shuttles. You earn your runs on her.
Runs are steep and technical. Not for beginners, or XC riders.
You see hikers, but they get out of the way and cheer you on.
City's english newspaper sent a reporter and cameraman up with us once, for pics and a story.
Equipment: A fullface lid and pads are a must, unless you like leaving flesh on the trail to show where you've ridden. Bring a full camelback and munchies. In summer and fall you can usually find an Ajuma selling food, soju, beer, and ice-cream at the top of one of the ridges, but not always.
Is rideable all year, if you come prepared.
Summer is hot and humid, watch out for the odd monsoon. One hit us the day we took pics, we are all soaked.
Winter is usually clear and cold. Best season to run her is spring or fall.

In Korea and Seoul especially you are able to find a relatively high number of Bowling facilities, called "Bowling Chang" (º¼¸µÀå) in Korean.
Some are new, some are old but it's great fun nontheless.
Just look for a giant bowling pin on any rooftop and you know where to go!
Equipment: Everything you need is provided. Bowling balls are provided in all different sizes, shoes are available against a small fee.

Asia League Ice Hockey consists of 8 teams; 4 from Japan, 2 from China and 1 from Korea and Russia. Well, actually I don’t know about ice hockey very much. So I’ll show you a useful website. You can check out the schedule and the system of this league. I went to an Arena in Seoul to watch a match last year. It was my first time to watch ice hockey games in my life but it was really exciting and interesting. Seoul had a team named Winia but this team has changed its home arena from Seoul to Anyang. But you don’t worry about that. Anyang is very close to Seoul. You can get to Anyang by subway line-1.
Equipment: Spirits like ram, whisky etc...

If you're in Yeouido Park or Olympic Park and want to ride a bike you're in luck. The picutre to the left is just half of the stock of one of the five bike rental places in Yeouido Park (and more in Olympic and other ones, too).
Rates are reasonable (same as the rollerblades, actually) at 3,000 won (USD 2.50) an hour...6,000 won an hour for tandem bikes (those ones are popular too). Just give them a piece of ID and pay for the first hour, if you go longer just make up the 'overtime', as they call it, when you return (there is no extra charge for being late, you still pay the base rate only).
You can even go as far as you like...perhaps the 22 km from Yeouido Park to Olympic Bridge...just as long as you're back by about 8-9pm when they want to close up.
