The first part of the evening: Eating Korean BBQ, which always comes with a variety of side dishes. I came to Seoul a few years ago for the first time and this has become my favourite dinner meal. Not only because of the taste, but also because of the setting. Being together with friends around a grill gives such a cozy feeling.
Soju! The most popular alcoholic beverage in South-Korea. Not everyone likes it though, as it has a very distinct taste. Personally I would choose a bottle of Soju over a beer any day! The lid of the bottle is used for various drinking games. (which I always seem to lose…)
Sometimes fun, sometimes very embarrassing…
Karaoke Rooms. Especially if you are a foreigner and the only song you know is Gangnam Style….
떡볶이 is soft rice and fish cake together with very spicy sauce which can eaten alongside the road. A good way to sober up! (or get rid of a hangover).
The steamy dumplings and mandu shops add a lot of atmosphere to the streets of Seoul.
A series about Korean night life isn't complete without the neon signs and of course the numerous pc rooms, where koreans and foreigners spend many hours playing games like Starcraft, Overwatch and League of Legends.
막걸리 (rice wine) is often served in an iconic gold coloured kettle together with gold coloured bowls and 'jeon' (an omelet/pancake with vegetables or sea food dish)
A series of night life in Seoul can't go without neon lights and massage shops...
Bungeoppang: Fish-shaped sweet pastries filled with red beans or pudding.
