anybody been to this sauna by themselves? Wife went with a Korean friend and thought it was wonderful. However there was a story in the Jongang Daily that unless you are accompanied by an Korean or Japanese person they won't let foreigners in.

Maybe I should just have my Korean friend wait outside when I buy the tickets and see if they serve me. Idea

Maybe we should see if the rumors are true before we judge them. If I remember, I'll tell you what happens. But, surely someone must have tried.

Sorry, from reading that, I'd have to say that they would let me in for my Korean skills. Someone else would have to be an impartial judge. I'll let you know about the facilities if I go though.

I was there really late one night with two Korean girls, a Japanese girl, and a foreigner friend. They let us in no prob. even though we didn't have Korean 'same-sex' friends with us. From what I recall it was a really nice place. I'd like to go back but I would hate to be turned away cause' I'm a 'whitie'. I think I'd get pretty pissed and put up a big stink.
