Seoul Fashion Week turned out as expected. All shows were tasteful without outlandish outfits. The designers all chose to present items which could be worn, as opposed to just being pieces of art. This is why I really enjoyed Seoul Fashion Week.

What’s up, SeoulGrid! This weekend is Halloween, and we’ve got another free guestlist for you this week. So anyone who missed out on Club Heaven last weekend, here’s your chance to make up for it:
This Friday at Club Answer, simply come before 12:00 midnight and tell them you’re on the SeoulGrid guestlist to get free entry. No need to email to get your name on a list this time — just show up and say “SeoulGrid.”
Remember, 12:00 sharp. Don’t be 5 minutes late or they won’t let you in. In fact, don’t be 20 seconds late. Save yourself some trouble and plan to be there at 11:30 to give yourself some buffer time for slow taxis, traffic jams, and a long line out front.
As for dress code… Well, it is Halloween, so it’s a costume party — I don’t imagine they’re going to enforce dress code as strictly as they usually do. But I can’t predict or control the bouncers, so use your own judgment.
And if you see me, come say ‘Hi.’ (Or buy me a drink… or whatever!). I’ll be the idiot in the bright orange jumpsuit — it’ll be like “Where’s Waldo,” except easy.
Happy Halloween, SeoulGrid! I’ll see you on the dance floor.
One of the most famous (or infamous) Korean dishes is bovine intestines. We grill ‘em, stir-fry ‘em and even put ‘em in a spicy soup along with other ingredients.
One place worth checking out when you’re feeling extra gutsy is Woobojeong near Seolleung station (line number 2 or the green line).
The restaurant offers daechang (large intestines) and makchang (end portion of intestines) for grill order. As soon as an order is made, fresh charcoal is brought in to grill all of your intestinal goodies, which not too much later will end up in your intestines. Makchang and daechang look and taste similar, though makchang is a little chewier.
Welcome to another exciting episode of club view. It’s Halloween weekend, which generally means big parties and people putting on costumes and taking off their inhibitions. Halloween is looking to be that crazy time of year in Seoul. While there are a plethora of parties, mostly its standard club nights with resident DJs and the word Halloween thrown up to create an unrealistic sense of difference. However, there are a couple of needles in the haystack (and big needles they are) that I have found for you, so read on to discover them…
What’s up, SeoulGrid. Jake mentioned this in Club View this week, but just in case anyone missed it — this Friday SeoulGrid is hooking you all up with free guestlist at Club Heaven.
Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and how many people you’re bringing. Anyone who emails us before 1pm on Friday will get free entry at Heaven until 12:00 midnight. (There’s usually a line out front, so come at 11:30 just to be safe).
Note: Club Heaven, as with all premium clubs in Seoul, is really strict about dress code. If you’re wearing baggy clothes, shorts, sandals, a business suit, anything remotely “hip-hop,” or in general do not look stylish, they will reject you at the door. There’s nothing we can do about this, even if you’re on our guestlist. Dress up and look sharp!

Whether I see you or not Friday night, as always — party hard, Seoul.
Hello everyone and welcome to another exciting episode of Club View. I want to give support to both DJ Yup @ Answer on Friday and AC @ Heaven, these guys killed it. But that was the past, so let’s look at the future. At first I thought it might be a slow weekend, but then I saw a LEGEND is coming to Seoul. So read on to find out where you should go this weekend.
Although most people know that New York, London, Milan, and Paris have fashion shows, most westerners are unaware that Seoul has one. It does, and it’s good. Although some may not agree with me, I believe the Seoul Fashion Week is underrated. I believe this because during fashion week, the designers present a lot of clothes which you can actually wear. It isn’t a contest of who can make the most outlandish garb which will give their brand the most attention.

Heavily salted, dripping with oil, and often slightly stale street food is still one of the most popular and, arguably, most delicious Korean cuisines. Yet, even when a serious sodium craving hits, the local street food stall doesn’t always satisfy. In fact, street food doesn’t have to equate with low quality, unhealthy ingredients. At Gukdae Tteokbokki in Hongdae, traditional Korean street food gets a makeover.
What’s up, SeoulGrid? I heard from my friend that a lot of people came out and used the SeoulGrid guestlist at Club Answer last weekend — I hope you all had fun!
Since there seems to be a lot of interest, we’re doing it again. This Saturday, feel free to use the SeoulGrid guestlist to get free entry into Mu Lounge. Details after the jump…
Hello everyone in the blogosphere and welcome to another episode of Club View with your host Jake. I trust that you have all recovered from Global Gathering, but then again if you have recovered then you didn’t nearly have as much fun as you should have.
Its officially starting to get cold, but we got some fire coming this weekend this Seoul, so read on…
