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!?
