drinking in seoul

Originally posted on Instagram.

There’s nothing more confusing about life, or nightlife, in Korea than clubbing! Trying to navigate through the ups and down of clubbing in Korea will get you lost—literally. Some clubs are so hard to find.

Well, “here today, gone tomorrow” seems to be the motto of many clubs that end up closing almost as soon as they open, or reopen. With club after club appearing and disappearing, one thing is for sure. The competition between clubs is fierce, and every club claims to be the best. Of course, we only want to go to the best clubs. So, The Party Girl’s Guide is for you, Slaymates!

Are you ready for our first club, Soap Seoul (@soapseoul)? Here are six tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your girl’s night out in Itaewon.

1. If you want to get in Soap Seoul before midnight, plan, prepare, and pregame accordingly! The wait can be one minute or one hour.

2. If you are going to The Cut Presents (@officialcutstudio), one of the best parties at Soap Seoul, don’t forget to RSVP! It’s first come, first serve, but guests who get in before 11 p.m. get in for free.

3. Start out with dinner and drinks at Vatos Urban Tacos (@vatoskorea). I recommend the Mama’s Tamales paired with any of the amazing craft beers on draft, but I’m a sucker for a good stout! If you want to go girls gone wild, share a “Makgeollita,” which is what you get when you mix makgeolli (Korean rice wine) with margaritas.

4. Head on over to The Rose & Crown Ale House (@the_roseandcrown) for a cheap, “Hard” or “Super Hard” cocktail after dinner. If you skipped dinner and drinks, pair it with a delicious appetizer. I love their mac and cheese!

5. There’s a 7/11 on the way to Soap Seoul. Two words: flavored soju. My favorite flavors are apple and… Okay, flavored soju doesn’t taste good, but it does get the job done!

6. Soap Seoul closes at 5 a.m. You’ll probably have an hour or two to kill before the subway starts running again, so stop by Sultan Kebab (@sultankebabseoul) for the craziest kebabs in town. They’re served by some of the coolest guys in town! It’s open until 6 a.m.

The Soap Seoul Night Tour is coming soon, so don’t forget to follow Slay In Korea on Instagram! 💕

description: It was everything, from his tattoos, to his touches, to the way sweat rolled down his neck as he strummed into his guitar on stage; everything about him completely enthralled you. So why are you now, two and a half years later, on a train to Seoul, telling a complete stranger the recollection of how you became fated to forever have scars on all of your future hearts due to the happiness, but most of all the pain, that came along with falling in love with Jeon Jungkook. 

note: inspired by the anime/manga “Nana”


The icy breeze whipped across your face as you started your approach towards the building. The speed of your heart was increasing with every step, your legs began to weigh you down like lead, and your breathing became harsh and ragged. Nerves were infecting your body, intensifying as you finally reached the automatic doors. You closed your eyes, taking in a deep breath before finally stepping forward. The doors opened for you, and the bustling Busan train station was revealed.

Noises echoed in every direction, you watched as people quickly rushed towards their trains, and you suddenly figured that you should do the same. You shook away your wonder as you started to go through bag check, but your eyes still managed to drift around the building that you remembered all too well.

It was quieter back then, or maybe it wasn’t. You might’ve just been so numbed by all of the pain you were feeling that you couldn’t sense anything else. Your eyes glided across the path that had been etched into your mind for the past year and a half.

“I know it doesn’t seem like it, but I love you so much. I really fucking do.”

Baby Daddy (Series)



Why was it so hard for life to give you the most basic of your wishes? Were you such a bad person that you were constantly being given a hard time? Were you too selfish that you almost always had to fight for the things you wanted? Or was it just plain bad luck and bad decision making?

You stared at Chi Ah who was scanning a picture book. He wanted a pet fish this morning and when you asked him what kind, he grabbed his aquarium book and has been busy looking for the one he wanted.

“Can daddy buy me this?” he asked you pointing to a tiger shark.

“I think he can. But that one’s too big.” You chuckle.

“We can put it in the tub?” he asks cheerfully.

“I don’t think a shark would like living in a tub, baby.” You tell him petting his head.

“Oh.” He says sadly but proceeds to scan for other fish.

You had made a deal with Jay to let him clean the mess he’d made. You knew that it meant he would have another thing to take care of aside from the million ones he already has on his plate. But he had insisted to prove himself innocent of your accusations.

“It’s just… You can feel so alone in big cities; you just get so easily lost.”

“Ah, particularly with your height, yeah?”

His shoulder knocked sideways into yours before his raised his beer, initiating a cheer. You rolled your eyes at him as a smile involuntarily sneaked up on your lips before you took a hesitant sip.

“Oh, come on, Joonie. Don’t tell me there’s not something comforting about the familiarity of a small town.”

The two of you were sitting on top of the roof of their building, drinking as you watched the Seoul skyline. His cocky smile faded as his face straightened, his eyes remaining on the buildings beneath you. His long legs were dangling off the side of the buildings, his arms resting on the fence pole that justified two drunken young adults sitting on the edge of a tall building.

“I don’t know, Summer.” he shrugged, “There’s something comforting in the anonymity of a big city as well. Unless you’re in my particular situation, it’s so easy to find time for yourself here.”

You frowned as you pondered, taking another sip from your beer. Summer wasn’t even your name, you know? He had called you that since you met that summer in the park, when you clumsily stumbled and spilled your lemonade all over your dress. He rushed to you, forcefully fighting off a stubborn smile as he assured himself that you were okay. The rest was history, the only thing important thing being that you smelled like summer to him and that stuck for the time being. You had been best friends ever since, him helping and guiding you through various obstacles in life. He had been your rock for a year now, the two of you celebrating your one-year anniversary on a rooftop with shared drinks.

“But you’re not in that situation” your brows furrowed with frustration, “there’s no anonymity for you here. Don’t you miss the golden pre-debut times in your little neighborhood and everything that was comfortable?”

He almost choked on his beer as you finished your sentence, his eyes widening with shock and disagreement. He chuckled lightly before licking his lips, his eyes now binding with yours.

“Oh, Summer, your naive demeanor never fails to surprise me. You didn’t want to know me before my debut, trust me on this one, yeah?”

His smile grew larger as your eyes grew even larger with confusion, your innocence fascinating to him.

“But I don’t know… I don’t really feel alone that often. Do you feel alone?” his brows furrowed with worry as he looked at you, your eyes now fixated on your knees.

“Oh, it happens, Joonie. I don’t have a lot of other people but you. I left my family as a doe-eyed teenager, thinking that there was only joy and glory to be found in the big cities. However, it seems that not all that glitters is gold.” your voice grew quiet towards the end, making you seem very small.

“Do you ever regret it?” his eyes carried a sadness along with hesitance, a fear in his voice that he didn’t want to hear the answer.

You looked at him, a pause as your eyes met before you broke out a smile.

“Of course not, Joonie! Otherwise I wouldn’t have met you.”

He smiled timidly, unsure if you knew what effect you had on him. He had helped you through a lot of breakups and picked you up from lousy dates, making him too shy to ever try to flirt with you. He thought it was better if he just remained a good friend to you.

“You know, I have to admit…” he shifted slightly, his face showing a discomfort, “You’re a key ingredient to not feeling alone.”

“How so?” you fluttered.

“You’re just always my source of happiness. Even on the days I don’t see you, I don’t have to do much else but remind myself of that confused, Bambi-legged girl in the park, spilling her lemonade all over her dress as she cursed to herself.” he broke eye contact, taking a larger sip of his beer as he felt his involuntary confession approaching. His palms were sweaty, fearing that he had already crossed a line with you.

You smiled shyly, a blush apparent on your cheeks.

“Have you ever been in love?” you asked courageously, smiling as you gazed into his Coca-Cola colored eyes. He blushed, his face straightening with fear.

“I think I have been for a while now…” he smiled back as he tested the waters. Love was diffusing in the air, a part of you unsure if it was the alcohol painting a picture for you.

“With who, may I ask?”

“Some ridiculous girl, it doesn’t matter.” he chuckled cockily, pushing you away teasingly.

“Who is it?” you asked, obliviously.

“A dork I met last summer in a yellow dress.” he replied, his voice growing more careful with each surpassing word.


“Ah, don’t say it.” he smiled as he anticipated your rejection, “I’ve helped you through enough relationships to know that you’ve never had interest in me. I get to watch you and hear you laugh, that’s fine for me, really.”

You looked at him confusedly, a hurt painted in his eyes. It was then that you reached your hand out to him, putting the other hand around his neck as you pulled him in for a kiss. It was careful, your lips only just caressing each other before he realized what had happened and the kiss deepened.

“Why’d you do that?” he muttered against your lips, your faces only an inch away from each other.

“Because I’m in love with you, too, idiot.” you smiled against his lips before you engulfed his lips again.

His courage grew with time, his hands travelling to your waist and then to your hair as his tongue danced with yours. He tasted like beer. You tasted like summer.

“When was the biggest crisis in your relationship?”
“(Man) I’m always failing at keeping my word. I keep telling her I will quit smoking but never do.” 
“(Woman) My boyfriend doesn’t drink alcohol, but he can’t quit smoking. On the contrary, I often drink and get drunk; thus, my boyfriend wants me to quit drinking. However, I can’t quit drinking, so we keep arguing, telling each other quit drinking and quit smoking.”

“사귀면서 가장 큰 위기의 순간이 언제였나요?”
“(남자) 제가 금연하겠다는 약속을 항상 못 지켰어요.”
“(여자) 남자친구는 술은 안 마시는 데, 담배를 못 끊어요. 제가 계속 끊으라고 하는데도요. 근데 저는 술을 자주 마시고 취하는 편이라, 남자친구가 술을 못 마시게 하는데, 안 마실 수가 없더라고요. 그래서 서로 술 끊으라고, 담배 끊으라고 하면서 계속 싸워요.” 

Also there needs to be a drinking game in Seoul called “take a shot every time you see a large cardboard cutout of Kang Daniel” because you will be drunk very quickly.
