heres the trick

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, anyway. Stop by Sultan Kebab (@sultankebabseoul) for the craziest kebabs in town, which are 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! 💕 

This is not an exaggeration:
  • White Feminists: Listen, you don't get to pick and choose who you defend! As feminists we have to defend ALL women. That's right. Even the racist ones who call you racial slurs and hope you suffer for your entire lives. Even the ones that chant "feminism is cancer" and hope all feminists die. You have to defend them as a feminist.
  • Me, a person with a brain: Um, I think the fuck not.
  • White Feminist: Then you're not a real feminist!
  • *something terrible happens to women of color*
  • White Feminists: *long silence* you can't expect me to constantly care about everyone 24/7 365.

Griffin in Taz: haha you guys are a riot! Okay, you enter the next room and there is a huge banner that says “I love my brothers.” And I’m standing under it with your favorite sweet treats in my arms.

Griffin in MbMbaM: okay yeah, you guys can go fuck yourselves. Anyway, here are my new vape tricks. I’m your baby brother McElroy, and that’s trademarked so don’t even FUCKING think about it. I’m the only baby brother here, fuckers.

Hi! What secrets of Adulting have you managed to pick up? How do you adult I am a year older than you (I think) but I still can't convince myself not to eat ice cream for breakfast or find a job that will pay me a living wage, like even my cat judges me. Your cat seems cool? Help! Also I too am drunk, thanks autocorrect!,

OH GOD I DON’T KNOW. I’m not very good at adulting in private–I haven’t cleaned a single thing in my house (dishes, laundry, floors, w/e) in a terrifyingly long time, and I had french fries and gin for “dinner” (it was at happy hour, I ate at happy hour.) 

I CAN convincingly portray an adult to the outside world, however. Here are my tricks, such as they are: 

-Adulthood is a performance, so work on your stagecraft. Get some make up that suits you, and learn to quickly apply it with a minimum of fuss. If you can afford it, have the nice people at Sephora match a foundation and a cover up to your skin. That plus some basic eyeliner gets people who are younger than you to believe you are a Put Together Grown Up, and people who are older than you to believe you are a Responsible Young Person. It’s sexism at work, but it makes a difference. I think people interpret it as the facial equivalent of having neat handwriting. 

-If you’re gonna be a lazy and self-sabotaging asshole, figure out how to do that without getting in your own way (too much.) I am the LAZIEST ASSHOLE, and I make my life far more complicated and disgusting than it needs to be as a direct result of that–but I let myself fuck things up in private. I fuck things up for myself, not for other people. It sucks for ME if my kitchen is filthy. My work, however, gets done on time. Prioritize your laziness. I can’t not do my work because I want to lie on the couch and watch Jane the Virgin. I CAN refuse to do my dishes because I want to lie on the couch and watch Jane the Virgin. Decide what nonessential system you’re gonna sabotage, and deliberately sabotage that instead of waiting around to see if this time you’re gonna fuck up the life support. (This is obviously a stopgap for if you absolutely, pathologically, for some reason, NEED to be a lazy, self-sabotaging asshole. as I apparently do. If you have the option of NOT being a lazy, self-sabotaging asshole, DO THAT INSTEAD.) 

-in a related story, the only time I have consistently had a clean and comfortable living situation was when I lived with someone else, and therefore being a lazy asshole at home would fuck things up for more than just me. If shame motivates you, FINE. USE IT. 

-Smile at people and say hello. People like it when you smile at them and say hello. If you can remember their name, say their name. I do not have this instinct even a LITTLE–I have deliberately trained myself to do it in professional contexts. I think it helps. 

-Faking it IS making it. The other day I was like “UGH, IT IS GOING TO BE SO CLEAR THAT I’M A LAZY IDIOT WHO DOESN’T CARE ABOUT [THING] IN THIS MEETING, AND EVERYONE WILL DESPISE ME AND SEE ME FOR THE FRAUD I AM,” and then I was like “HOW CAN I GIVE A CONVINCING PERFORMANCE OF A PERSON WHO RADIATES WARMTH, EFFICIENCY, AND EXPERTISE DURING THIS MEETING?”, and then I googled a couple things and jotted down some notes and considered a couple things, and by the time the meeting came around I was not just giving an effective performance of a person who was prepared, I was ACTUALLY prepared. 

-People tend to think your life is together if your outfits are together. This is also sexism. It still works. Do your best to make sure your outfits are clean and neat. Doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Just clean and neat. My apartment is in a SHAMBLES atm, but I leave the house dressed for the part of Responsible Adult. 

i have no idea if any of this will help, but it’s what I got. You have a cat, and cats are good, although they are also sometimes judgmental! It’s okay for your cat to know you are a mess. It’s okay for YOU to believe you’re a mess. Just try and put on a convincing show for other people.
