I really wanna go in Seoul, but I got no one to come with me (non poker player friends_lol). I'll have to man up and go by myself.

I'm interested in hearing about the nightlife in Asia. How do you mean better? (i.e. cheaper drinks, hotter chicks, etc.) Are you having more fun than you would in a famous party destinations in the States?

yes its cheaper, the quality of girls in korea is really really high, much better than other asian countries

u can be out clubbing till 10 am if u want

they have all sorts of different clubs with different crowds and music with tons of hot girls in every single one, except in the foreigner districts like itaewon...hongdae can still be quite good though

they have booking clubs which are like speed dating clubs and are a lot of fun even though speaking korean makes them way more fun

most of the non-korean speakers that i have brought to night clubs in korea generally had a great time but were a bit annoyed by language barrier. but u can easily have a good time despite hte language barrier if u aren't a pussy and just try to use w/e means to communicate...plus like 20% of girls these days in clubs speak english atleast decently

korea also has huge assortment of sexy bars etc which are great for pre-gaming

more info there...though thats old and outdated it still gives you the gist

Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

lol

You just ask a korean or Naver it. It's not like they're underground bars.

Rekrul-

I've never been to the sexy bar. From what I heard you're just paying extra money for a girl to sit next to you and drink.

Is this true/is it still worth going otherwise?

Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

To a degree, I envy those living in Seoul. Masan has zero nightlife, zero women in their 20's and literally nobody born in Masan speaks any English beyond "Where are you going?"
