Top 10 Korean Mafia Movies

A side of Korean culture I prefer to learn about only from movies, Korean gangsters. This film genre is just as popular in 대한민국 as it is in the USA. I liked 'Friend' the best, it is well directed and deals not only with gangsters themselves but regular people who are effected by the actions of 깡패. It is not as off the wall or cheesy as some Korean movies tend to be. 'The City of Violence', on the other hand, is kind of cheesy but is still action packed and moves along quickly. Which one do you like the most? Check out this list of 10 Best Korean Gangster Movies.

Best Bars in Seoul

As some of you may well know, the drinking culture is huge in Korea. I've always enjoyed going to the cheaper traditional Korean places to drink, as opposed to Gangnam / Itaewon / Hongdae ad nauseam. But there are plenty of cool bars all over to try out, with lots of character. Try this list of best bars in Seoul. I'd recommend Bar Da in Hongdae and The Timber House at the Park Hyatt. Tired of the Itaewon scene? Just looking for a reason to wander around the city? Check out the list! :)

TuneIn iPhone app

I've been listening to more and more Korean radio. My 듣기실력 really need some improvement! I was using MBC mini and SBS 고릴라 apps but the TuneIn app is much better in my opinion. Much more reliable, loads up quickly, and a good variety of stations to listen to. 한국 라디오 고고씽! My favorite station is TBS 95.1 FM.
