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!?

I've heard that going to a dvd 방 is the korean equivalent to Netflix and chill
I can't help but wonder do guys usually bring a bag of snacks with them to the PC Bangs?
BAR!
@ashleyemmert That's interesting! I would imagine the keyboard would be nasty after multiple people them throughout the day. Lol. I remember back in the day we were not allowed to bring food to computer stations in the library (for that reason).
i wanna go to a spa room and a karaoke room 030

Types of 빙수: Korea's Favorite Summer Dessert!
Bingsu is a classic summer dessert in Korea and all you need to make it is shaved ice and toppings! Here are a few popular ones: Let's start with the classic - 팥빙수 pat-bing-su/Red Bean Shaved Ice! You might be thinking "beans?! on a dessert?!" but these are red beans! they're really sweet and delicious and used in many desserts and breads all over Asia. Next up, 멜론빙수! mel-lon-bing-su/ Melon Shaved Ice! Summer is the season of melon and its popular to get your shaved ice served to you with a half of a melon as the bowl! Delicious :) My personal favorite, 딸기빙수! ddal-gi-bing-su/StrawberryShaved Ice! Korean strawberries are incredibly sweet and when served as bingsu, its magical! this is always my favorite flavor! The irresitible 녹차빙수! nok-cha-bing-su/Green Tea Shaved Ice! You can never go wrong with a green tea dessert. Korea grows a lot of green tea so if you're lucky you're trying freshly made green tea products grown right in Korea! A summer MUST! 수박빙수! soo-bak-bing-su/Watermelon Shaved Ice! Korea is OBSESSED with watermelon in summer! You can get watermelon milk, watermelon juice, or even just watermelon on a stick all over Korea! So of course you have to try watermelon shaved ice! Mouth watering 오레오빙수! o-re-o-bing-su/Oreo Shaved Ice! Can anything taste bad when covered in oreos? Didnt think so :) A traditional taste - 인절미빙수! in-jeol-mi-bing-su/Injeolmi Shaved Ice! What's injeolmi? It's a kind of rice flour and rice cake! It is sort of bland but its a taste that grows on you :) The wonderful 흑임자빙수! heuk-im-ja-bing-su/Black Sesame Shaved Ice! I love black sesame! It is similar to peanut butter almost but a little weaker in taste. Dont let the color intimidate you - its delicious! Wake up with 커피빙수! keo-pi-bing-su/Coffee Shaved Ice! Coffee bingsu usually comes with a shot of espresso for you to pour over the ice. Eat fast before it melts! Last but not least... 토마토빙수! to-ma-to-bing-su/Tomato Shaved Ice! Cherry tomatoes are considered a dessert in Korea so you often see it on the dessert emnu. I haven't tried it but the picture is pretty at least! What flavor do you want to try?!
Visiting the City of Gunsan in South Korea
Korea has a complicated, heartbreaking history, but in Gunsan the struggle to grapple with the past is especially strong. In cities like Seoul, most of the city was torn apart first by the Japanese then by the Korean war, and then again in the 80s by the desire to "modernize." So when you look at Seoul, you have to actively look for pieces of hardships of the 20th century. Gunsan though was not touched by the Korean war (except for losing their train station) so all of the architecture from the 1920s that the Japanese built while they colonized the country and set up a system of taking all of their food, remains. Gunsan does a fantastic job of showcasing the history while also standing up for Korea and sharing the hardships the citizens went through during this time. It was a great history lesson and I'm thankful that they had so much info in English! First stop was Cafe Teum, an old grainery that turned into a cafe after it was abandoned and in disarry. Then I went to the Hitotsu House, a two story Japanese style house in the center of the Shinheungdong neighborhood where all the rich Japanese people lived before the 1950s. It's very rare to see any Japanese architecture in Korea because it was all torn down by the war or by citizens wanting to tear down what the colonizers left behind. Next was Dongguksa, the only Japanese style temple left in Korea. It was stunning and so peaceful with a little tea house and tons of bamboo. Last up was the rail town and architecture museum which I adored. I learned so much on this trip and I hope you learned something too :) Watch my trip there here:
