First Trip to a DVD Bang

Last week was the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War.  On June 25, 1950, North Korean soldiers crossed the 38th parallel and invaded South Korea.  There were all sorts of celebrations with veterans all weekend.  I wanted to celebrate it in my own way.  There has been a Korean movie I have been wanting to see called Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War.  So I decided to venture out to one of the popular places in Korea, the DVD Bang.

A DVD Bang is a place where you can go watch movies in your own small movie room.  I choose one that I had heard was clean and nice.  There are some on every corner here in town but some aren’t as nice as others.  The one I went to was quite nice.  There was a small couch with a good sized screen (I am guessing 50″ or so) and good surround sound.

I’ll definitely be going back at some point.  I really liked it and the price wasn’t that bad at 8-10k won depending on how long the movie is.  By the way, if you are interested in seeing a good movie on the Korean War, check out Tae Guk Gi: Brotherhood of War.  It is well worth it and you should be able to find it with English subtitles anywhere.
