Alright, What The Heck is a 방 ?!
We hear this at the end of words a lot....방 (bang)!
And here's a hint...it has nothing to do with Bangtan^^ 방 actually means ROOM!
In Korea it is used for a lot of things, especially places you can rent for a short time to play, work, sing, etc. PC방 - PC Room (pc-bahng)
This is where you can rent a PC computer to play video games, watch movies, or just access fast internet! This is usually a place that serves snacks, is kept really cold and dark, and is filled with people playing League of Legends or Starcraft LOL! DVD방 - DVD Room (DVD-bahng)
This is where you rent a small room with a couch or lots of mats and you can watch a movie on a big screen. You pay by how long with movie is. 노래방 - Singing Room (no-rae-bahng)
This is just like karaoke! You get a private room to use with your friends or just yourself and you either pay by the hour or pay per song. 멀티방 - Multi Room (meol-ti-bahng)
This has a little of everything. You can do karaoke but also play video games like Playstation, Wii, etc. There are usually snacks offered for free! 찜질방 - Korean Spa (jjim-jil-bahng)
This is a really typical Korean spa with saunas, steam rooms, and pools. People can stay here overnight for very cheap and there is usually a small selection of food. Which of these would you love to go to!?
